It is possible to use a combination of the range_offset_limit and quick_abort_min to force Squid to cache the request, but Squid will still strip off the Range header and try to request the entire object but It is still not a good solution.stripping the range header -> not good Which one is it?Do you know anything about VARNISH which has experimental support for range requests as you can enable it via the “http_range” runtime parameter.
you cant every theoretically consider varnish for youtube caching. well microsoft updates is another story so it can be considered.
in any case the range in hot used using plain "headers" but using a url argument on youtube.What I have already found is that Varnish will try to request the entire file from the back-end server, and only if the entire file is in the cache, will it successfully respond with a partial content response and not contact the back-end server. Does Squid has the ability to remove Range Header ?Squid-3.2: range_offset_limit none youtube or for older Squid versions: request_header_access Range deny youtube
so it wont help anyway. Eliezer
