Original post

tube is a Youtube-like (without censorship and features you don’t need!) Video Sharing App written in Go which also supports automatic transcoding to MP4 H.265 AAC, multiple collections and RSS feed.


  • Easy to add videos (just move a file into the folder)
  • Easy to upload videos (just use the builtin uploader and automatic transcoder!)
  • Builtin ffmpeg-based Transcoder that automatically converts your uploaded content to MP4 H.264 / AAC
  • Builtin automatic thumbnail generator
  • No database (video info pulled from file metadata)
  • No JavaScript (the player UI is entirely HTML, except for the uploader which degrades!))
  • Easy to customize CSS and HTML template
  • Automatically generates RSS feed (at /feed.xml)
  • Clean, simple, familiar UI
