The appliance is
configured to cache videos from YouTube and Vimeo, and is partially configured
to cache videos from Youku, Metacafe, and Dailymotion. To cache videos from any
of the latter three sites, you must enable the site. A video from an enabled
website is cached as soon as a user accesses it. You can configure additional
video websites that do not require URL rewrite by adding their host names or IP
addresses to the Video Source list on the appliance. You can also include
custom sites that do not have any cache avoidance mechanisms.
You must enable
these video sources before the appliance can cache videos from them.
Note: The video
caching feature uses video sources for the configuration workflow. If you
configure any of the video sources with a host name or a website/hostname, the
appliance proxies all HTTP traffic that flows through the appliance. However,
if you configure all video sources with IP addresses only, the appliance
proxies and caches only these IP addresses. Regardless of whether you use host
names or IP addresses, if your organization does not permit access to the
YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Metacafe, and Youku websites, make sure that you
disable these video sources.
