We allow Youtube at the school and most of the children view the same crap music videos - I want to cache it, it’s a rural school so expensive data costs and limited backhaul.

I want to put a “micro-cloud” down and act as a Youtube CDN.

Can one create a CDN/Cache for youtube on a raspberry pi 4 with a 5TB external drive?

It’s all HTTPS so unlikely to be able to do an unofficial one.

Peplink makes routers with caching. Not sure if it will help specifically for the youtube issue.

For YT, they can't.. YouTube returns cache-control headers for the video parts with a value of private, which allows caching of video objects only by a private cache like a browser for a single client..
