Hello,

On a video site I have seen a video in streaming. But the file has not saved in the cache of Firefox. I use Cacheviewer to save the cached video. But it works only with video smaller thant 50-65 Mo. I have tape in the url bar about:cache and I have this result :

Memory cache device Number of entries: 0 Maximum storage size: 32768 KiB Storage in use: 0 KiB Inactive storage: 0 KiB Disk cache device Number of entries: 372 Maximum storage size: 358400 KiB Storage in use: 104153 KiB Cache Directory: C:\Users\Floown\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\brqfeyj6.default-1395427262057\Cache List Cache Entries Offline cache device Number of entries: 0 Maximum storage size: 512000 KiB Storage in use: 0 KiB Cache Directory: C:\Users\Floown\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\brqfeyj6.default-1395427262057\OfflineCache

Hello,

You can change the maximum cached file size by changing the value of the browser.cache.disk.max_entry_size preference in about:config.

You can change the maximum cache size under Options - Advanced - Network.

If that doesn't help, you can use a video downloader add-on to save the files.

Note that Firefox may also be keeping the file in the memory cache.
