I used the product and can confirm it worked well. The product is no 
longer actively developing and the code was moved to GitHub [2]. Youtube 
support was officially dropped. Below is brief description of product's 

1. It adjusts refresh patterns to force video content caching, although 
the cached content could not be used by clients directly.
2. It continuously monitors for access.log to gather URLs and to count 
number of requests to the same URL.
3. The URL gets into the queue only if it was accessed configured number 
of times by a client.
4. It calculates exact location on the cache store for each URL and 
copies object directly from cache store to configured web server 
5. Next time, if it will detect request to already cached (on web 
server) object, URL rewriter redirects a client to the web server.
