video proxy

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
