A video proxy is a service that fetches and re-serves videos from a new URL, similar to an image proxy.
Similar to an image proxy, you should use a video proxy to:
- Avoid mixed content warnings when serving foreign videos
- Cache content that may disappear in the future
- Transcode or otherwise modifying videos before serving them to a client
Ryan Barrett uses a custom caching proxy on facebook-atom and instagram-atom.
