NodeTube is an open-source YouTube alt that offers video, audio and image uploads, livestreaming and built-in monetization
A live NodeTube instance is available to interact with at https://nodetube.live
You can get an instance up instantly using one-click deployment with Heroku below:
Now that the prerequisites are ready to go it's a few simple commands to get your instance up and running.
# Get the latest version of NodeTube git clone https://github.com/mayeaux/nodetube # Enter the nodetube folder that was just created cd nodetube # Install Node modules npm install # Then simply start your app npm start #If you're developing locally, you can boot the app with nodemon with: npm run dev
And that's it! Your first user registered will automatically be an admin user and you will be able to see the admin and moderation functionality. Each additional user will be a regular user and will be able to upload video, audio or images up to 500MB.
For ease of local development I recommend using Nodemon to automatically restart the app while working on backend code.
NodeTube comes with ngrok preinstalled with the setting in
.env.settings to run for new instances automatically. This means that when you boot the app you will see a log come through with a link where you can access the app from the ngrok subdomain. Great you're live on the internet, that was simple!
NodeTube is an Express application powered by NodeJS, with MongoDB as a database, with Redis for caching and
ffmpeg for converting and compressing video content. It uses Pug as a templating engine and loads process variables through the
resumable.js on the frontend as a library to allow stable and resumable uploads allowing for the upload process to not be broken during a system reboot.
NodeTube has the functionality to act as an authentication app for an nginx-rtmp server which allows NodeTube to facilitate livestreaming. NodeTube also has a built in livestreaming frontend with a live chat, live viewer count and which uses hls.js to stream the files being created by nginx-rtmp
