I'm looking for a video sharing app like:

But I want an open source app written in ruby on rails, I don't care about the default features, I could add features, I don't care about the app being lightweight or not, I could buy more powerful servers. Must run on Linux obviously.

  • User registration and accounts
  • Video uploading
  • More features is a plus, but it's okay, if they don't exist.
  • Welcome to Software Recommendations Stack Exchange! We will need much more information to give good recommendations here. Please take a look at What is required for a question to contain "enough information"? Then please edit your question and see if you can incorporate some of these improvements. – DanteTheEgregore Mar 7 '14 at 19:15
  • @DanteTheEgregore no everything is there per rules: What kind of application are you looking for? I already said, What operating system do you want the application to run on? obviously linux. I don't care about the hardware, I can buy bigger servers if needed, What features must the application have? , video sharing, something like youtube or vimeo and I gave 2 examples in case my explanation wasn't enough, tell me what information do you want exactly and I will edit my question, my goal and requirements are listed above – Lynob Mar 7 '14 at 19:39
  • Your question still does not fit within our minimum quality guidelines. I recommend you read both the question and the corresponding answer in their entirety and try looking at a few example questions here on SR. – DanteTheEgregore Mar 7 '14 at 19:50

    I search for the same thing, too. The closest I could get is OwnTube but it's python and I'm to dumb to get in running. Eventually I will start my own thing but I essentially need a "private youtube" which, in the best case, can also handle images and audio. – 2called-chaos May 30 '14 at 19:33
