YT uses cache-preventing scheme for videos relatively long time (after
they finished use Flash videos). So, no one - excluding Google itself -
can cache it now. Especially for mobile devices. I've spent last two
years to learn this. So, anyone who talk he can cache YT is lies.

As I explain here
why: http://wiki.squid-cache.org/ConfigExamples/DynamicContent/YouTube/Discussion

All another videos - well, this is a bit difficult - but possible to cache.

HTTPS itself in most cases can't be easy cached by vanilla squid.
