I have several users on a small network.
We all like to share YouTube, Hulu, and other Flash-based weblinks amongst ourselves. However, redownloading all that content seems inefficient.
I started with the Squid sample configuration for YouTube (http://wiki.squid-cache.org/ConfigExamples/DynamicContent/YouTube), but it either the Flash player is opening its own pipe outbound, or the proxy configuration is wrong - which seems to negate the benefit of the caching.
Is there a way to force the Flash player to use the proxy for this? Or have I perhaps missed something?
Update - I've earned the Tumbleweed badge on this one. Maybe this is harder than expected.
