With Mediagoblin you can host video and audio content in a similar manner to the proprietary systems such as YouTube and SoundCloud. This system supports free media formats such as /webm/, /ogv/ and /ogg/. Another similar system which might be better fitted for small servers is [[./app_peertube.html][PeerTube]], since it uses webtorrent to distribute video files.

Webtorrent will only work with WebRTC enabled browsers though.
When hosting media files you should take into consideration that since anyone on the internet can view your content then this could significantly increase your bandwidth usage and overall strain on the server. Also unless you are just hosting images then hardware such as the Beaglebone Black won't be powerful enough for a good user experience when either uploading or playing back videos. It's recommended that you use one of the more powerful quad (or more) core single board computers or an old laptop if you want to run Mediagoblin on it.

It's a good idea to upload videos in <i>webm</i> format. In that case Mediagoblin will skip the transcoding step (which can take hours for videos of non-trivial length) and the whole process will be quicker. Transcoding just converts whatever file format you submit into a standard resolution and file type. On your local system you can convert a video to webm with:

This is a video hosting system similar to Mediagoblin but using <a href="https://webtorrent.io/">webtorrent</a> to help distribute the files to or between clients. This should be more practical for situations where a video becomes popular because the load is then spread across the network, with performance increasing with the number of nodes.
This is a video hosting system similar to Mediagoblin but using <a href="https://webtorrent.io/">webtorrent</a> to help distribute the files to or between clients. This should be more practical for situations where a video becomes popular because the load is then spread across the network, with performance increasing with the number of nodes. However, the torrenting aspect of it only works with WebRTC enabled browsers and so this means it's unlikely to fully work with a Tor browser. Without WebRTC then from a user point of view it's effectively the same thing as Mediagoblin.

Navigate to your site and select <b>Signup</b> to create a new account. By default the maximum number of accounts on your system is limited to a small number so that millions of random internet users can't then begin uploading dubious content. After that it's pretty straightforward.
