  • Web Cache stops Disney+

    For the past few months I have been having trouble with Disney+ on Android Devices (TV, Phones and Tablets). The stream starts, but takes forever to load and stops more often then it plays. As such I thought it was Disney....
    Finally I came to an idea, and noticed it worked find over cell on my phone. 10 minutes playing with the Untangle, and found that once I disable Web Cache, Disney+ streams fine.

    Any ideas how I can bypass Disney+ traffic in Web Cache? Appears I can only use IPs and haven't had much luck figuring out what IPs are actually being used as the information turns to "....." when looking at current connections table/info on right side of screen. I also expect Disney+ uses many IPs and would have to change this to a range... Isn't there a bypass all rule/space in the network connections section somewhere?

    Thanks for the help!

    BTW... I would understand the suggestion to just disable it. I have a 500mb down connection, with unlimited data (WOW). My family uses between 20GB and 80GB of data a day and have noticed that even though Web Cache does help, it is still irrelevant.

    Keep in mind, you're only caching HTTP. I usually tell folks not to use it if they have a good connection like you do. But, if you want, you can do a hostname in those bypass rules (we put in a default rule for Google Maps, because it hates being cached):

      Dynamic web content, read all of the Internet, despises being cached.

      If you live anywhere with a half decent connection, abandon the module entirely. Your hair will thank you! If you need it, well you're stuck dealing with it. But if you don't have a true need, don't use Web Cache.
