The classmate was trying to get into Youtube, but of course, my school district believes that there isn’t enough educational content or it’s too much of distraction to allow normal access. Thus, proxies must be used.
Currently, therse is no such thing in PHProxy 0.5 but hopefully basic
support will be introduced for version 0.6. The best thing you could do
as most sites degrade gracefully, such as Gmail.
A third limitation for Web proxies is content accessed from within proxied
Flash and Java applications and such. Since the proxy script doesn’t have access
to the source code of these applications, the links which they may decide
to stream or access will not be proxified. There’s no easy solution for this
- Get html page with scripts (inline and external).
- If any URL rewriting to proxy form is required, do it, otherwise, take the script and put into your own file on your server. This is repeated for each script on the page.
That is a bit simple, but it’s a good start if it’s only a personal proxy and you have your own server. What about a CURL proxy?
