I develop Web cache application for video content. I need to test it with sites like Youtube. Are there any applications which can be used to emulate random browsing of Youtube so I can stress-load my cache proxy?

You might want to look at jmeter or some of the performance testing tools that use selenium.

I tried jmeter but the problem is that since it is not a browser and does not render the content it only downloads static resources while I'm interested in downloading the media files. – jackhab Sep 17 '09 at 10:51
The aforementioned Selenium might work for you, since it does emulate the browser. – gareth_bowles Nov 13 '09 at 19:52
