    I'd also like to know what a video cache server is. Never heard of such a device. Could be very interesting.

    Video Cache Server sounds like a server that caches streaming video. doh!

    Possible uses include:

    Caching High Resolution (Netflix) videos on slow internet connections aka "Light Internet" that some providers like 'Shaw' offer

    or

    Caching all the videos Netflix offers during the 30day trial period to avoid paying the monthly charges.

    Not much information is available on doing it with Server 2008 just linux:

    Video Cache Server Using Squid Apache and Python
    Purpose of this server is to cache all the websites like youtube.com blip.tv etc at our local squid cache server.

    With most providers you can just "save" the video locally & serve then in whatever way you want

    How to "save"? Depends on provider. Little learning & googling will help
