Let say I can cache youtube videos, what would I get for this?
I mean, what would anyone get from this?
Let say I will give you a blob that will work, will you try it? Or would
you want only an open source solution?

HTTPS is not a problem, if not a problem to install the proxy certificate
to the clients. 
The problem in combating caching YT by Google.

Only for strange definitions of "fake".

It is simply an old helper from before YouTube became all-HTTPS. It
should still work okay for any of the video sites that are still using
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:

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

If you look at the features list it clearly says:
 "No support for HTTPS (secure HTTP) caching."
HTTPS itself in most cases can't be easy cached by vanilla squid.
