First thing...

I would humbly like to thank God for giving me the necessary knowledge, motivation, resources and idea to be able to execute this project. Without God's permission this would never be possible.

For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen. Apostle Paul in Romans 11:36

This Software must be used for Good, never Evil. It is expressly forbidden to use AVideo Platform Open-Source to build porn sites, violence, racism, terrorism, or anything else that affects human integrity or denigrates the image of anyone.

Now you can read the rest...

Important Information

Streamer can be installed on any Server, including Windows, but the encoder and Livestream should work fine on any Linux distribution. However we recommend Ubuntu 20.04 without any kind of control panel. The problem with cPanel, Plesk, Webmin, VestaCP, etc. It's because we need full root access to install some libs, and maybe compile them. Another important point is that to make Livestream work, we need to compile Nginx and the control panels often prevent us from running the commands forcing the installation available only on your panel.

I don´t want to read I just want you to show me how to install!!

Ok, check this out!

There, you can find some hints for troubleshooting as well.

AVideo - Encoder

Go get it here

View Public Encoder

Why do I need the Encoder?

You may want to install the encoder for a few reasons, such as, if you have a faster server than the public encoder server (which is likely to be the case), or if you'd like a private way of encoding your videos.

But, the installation is mandatory if you are using a private network. The public encoder will not have access to send the videos to your streamer site.

If your server does not have a public IP or uses an IP on some of these bands:

  • (Localhost)

Surely you need to install an encoder

Server Requirements

In order for you to be able to run AVideo Platform, there are certain tools that need to be installed on your server. Don't worry, they are all FREE. To have a look at complete list of required tools, click the link below. https://github.com/WWBN/AVideo/wiki/AVideo-Platform-Hardware-Requirements

  • PHP 7.3+
  • MySQL 5.0+
  • Apache web server 2.x (with mod_rewrite enabled)


We've created a docker compose environment for easy development and production.


Either just build the current branch by cloning the repository and run

doker build -t avideo .

And run the image. It contains an Apache2 webserver exposing ports 80 and 443. We recommend using HTTPS on port 443 and ignore the HTTP port 80. The container will create a self-signed certificate on startup. There are some environment variables, that could be used to configure the environment

  • DB_MYSQL_HOST - defines the database host name - default is database
  • DB_MYSQL_PORT - defines the database port - default is 3306
  • DB_MYSQL_NAME - defines the database name - default is avideo
  • DB_MYSQL_USER - defines the database user - default is avideo
  • DB_MYSQL_PASSWORD - defines the database password - default is avideo
  • SERVER_NAME - defines the virtualhost name for Apache - default is avideo.localhost
  • ENABLE_PHPMYADMIN - defines, if PHPMyAdmin should be exposed - default is yes
  • CREATE_TLS_CERTIFICATE - defines, if the container should generate a self-signed certificate - default is yes
  • TLS_CERTIFICATE_FILE - defines the location of the TLS certificate - default is /etc/apache2/ssl/localhost.crt
  • TLS_CERTIFICATE_KEY - defines the location of the TLS private key - default is /etc/apache2/ssl/localhost.key
  • CONTACT_EMAIL - defines the contact mail address - default is admin@localhost
  • SYSTEM_ADMIN_PASSWORD - defines the system administrator passwort - default is password
  • WEBSITE_TITLE - defines the website title - default is AVideo
  • MAIN_LANGUAGE - defines the main language - default is en_US

If you don't want to rebuild the image during development, mount the git repository to the path /var/www/html/AVideo. Then it using your local copy.


We've also a simple docker compose environment to define the complete necessary environment. You can just use and customize the local docker-compose.yml file.

Beside the above defined docker image that can be build locally, the environment contains a MariaDB database and a PhpMyAdmin to have an easy look into the database content.

docker-compose up --build -d

In production you should remove the phpmyadmin image by setting ENABLE_PHPMYADMIN=no.

Also we're working on a prebuild image. So you can use the image from Docker hub.

After a git clone command run this

composer update --prefer-dist --ignore-platform-reqs
