I personally have never understood the need to cache youtube videos. There is millions of them, and every day there are new ones that are popular. Even if it's one music video, there are 100 versions of it. What chance do you have that your user will want the same one. Webpages are at least small, so you can cache what you want, but videos are big. How much storage do you need to have to cache 1% of youtube? :)

Usually the videos are shared over facebook or other social networking sites so the chances are high for multiple hits per popular videos.

Exactly - I do network design for my own ISP and I'd LOVE a box that could cache just the 10 most viewed videos from youtube somewhere central in our backbone. I do however see NO point in caching on end-user equipment.

I just installed their Beta version. So far it's doing good.

I've used thundercache for a year.

Youtube caching gives me about 20% of HITs. When you've slow connections, it's great.

The best of Thundercache (in my opinion), is the proxy for Premium sites.

If you've a Rapidshare account, you can configure it into the proxy, and then all your customers will be Premium User.

But when megaupload closed... I closed the proxy too :(

its absolute rubbish. i wasted a whole day messing with it and it did what for me? NOTHING! hardly did it ever cache anything. it kept saying every website i went to had dynamic content and is not cache'able. and thats true because the web today is all dynamic. gone are the days of yahoo.com or msn.com or whatevercrap.com where they had a static webpage and it was cache'able.

caching youtube videos is the dumbest thing every. there are millions of videos on youtube. you want to be lucky enough to have your office worker see the same crap-video you just saw?

ya. thundercrap is crap. thats all.

i rest my case.

If you are ISP, contact Google and install their caching servers in your data center. That is the only way to properly cache their services - to become part of their CDN. As I recall, requirements you must meet are few Gigabits of traffic and some data center certificates. That is very popular solution nowadays, since Youtube alone "eats" terryfing 30% of all traffic in average case.

I have a squid-based, self-made solution for youtube videos. Gives me about 30%-35% daily byte-hitrate, having about 20GB/day youtube traffic (incl. cached data), using 4TB of disk space.

I know this is old but I wanted to chime in since no one else has.

YES. Thundercache works, if you have a serious bandwidth deficit and at least 100 users it will change your users experience on the Internet. It will become almost as important as your Internet connection. When you turn off the cache your users will call and hound you until you get it back up.

I know from personal experience serving 100+ homes and businesses over 5:1 contention 3Mbps/512Kbps satellite Internet and regularly seeing them hit 4-9Mbps of client throughput during prime time.

If you are wondering if this will work for you, it does. You may still have some issues with some sites that have issues but they are proactive about doing updates.

It does cache netflix also. It's dirt cheap and works well, go for it.
