Save on Video

Video plays an integral part in 21st Century schools as an effective resource for keeping younger audiences engaged and rapidly transferring information. video-site-logosHowever, downloading video from YouTube and other providers consumes large quantities of bandwidth, costing you money and slowing things down for other users. A caching appliance enables you to store web content locally and serve it instantly to your users from inside the school. But online videos are not as straight-forward as other content – unintelligent caches run into problems:

  • Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) – many video sharing websites store the same content at multiple URLs. This confuses most caching solutions into treating each URL as unique content and not, therefore, serving content from cache.
  • Rule changes – even if a caching solution can handle CDNs, websites like YouTube often change the rules for presenting their content so that caching no longer works.
  • User behaviour – changing a video’s resolution, skipping forward or using other video controls can trick a cache into storing multiple segments of a video that are not likely to be requested again.
  • HTTPS – some popular video sharing sites deliver content using secure HTTPS connections. This makes it difficult for a cache to access the video content.

While many solution providers simply ignore these problems, ApplianSys has overcome them with CACHEBOX’s intelligent video cache extensions and automatic ‘sub-system updates’.
