I have a media storage server with over 20GB of free RAM. Server stores a FLV files. I'm using NGINX with HttpFlvStreamModule for streaming. It works like a harm.
I thought to take advantage of free memory for storing the most popular movies. This will give a breath for hard drives. I've try to use proxy_cache with directory mounted to RAM. Proxy cache worked fine, but flv module stoped working and I couldn't rewind the movie (seeking). I've tried several nginx configurations but none of them work as I want.
Also I`ve try to use proxy_store but it's pretty poor in cache options.
The proxy_cache_min_uses option is very important for selection of the most popular files.
Anyone had a similar problem?
