Has anyone had any success with the method described in this article? – Pure.Krome May 18 '09 at 3:47
I did it a year and a half ago, and I had mixed success, essentially with setting the maximum object size... I don't know if youtube changed anything that breaks this config, as I've been months wuthout caching youtube... – Andor May 18 '09 at 10:12
Without caching youtube? do u mean 'months caching YT' ?? – Pure.Krome May 19 '09 at 0:06

The only acceptable (and simple) solution I've found so far is InComum Squid2 helper.

It uses storeurl_rewrite_program to cache resources from domains wich do load balance (Eg: youtube, avast, etc).
