squid proxy settings for video streaming.

Post by The.Ex-pat » 2020/07/14 05:23:22

I get poor quality video when using squid proxy. I use the proxy when I'm out of the country to view geographically restricted video.

What can I add to my squid.conf file to be sure I'm getting the best video quality possible?

Edit:
Here is what I'm rocking right now.

Code: Select all
