Dim is a self-hosted media manager. With minimal setup, Dim will organize and beautify your media collections, letting you access and play them anytime from anywhere.

Running from binaries


  • libva2
  • libva-drm2
  • libharfbuzz
  • libfontconfig
  • libfribidi
  • libtheora
  • libvorbis
  • libvorbisenc
  • libtheora0

You can then obtain binaries from the release tab in github:

  1. Unpack with unzip ./ && tar -xvzf ./release.tar.gz
  2. Run cd release && ./dim
  3. Then you can access the Dim web UI through your browser with (assuming it's running locally.)

Running with docker

The following command runs dim on port 8000, storing configuration in $HOME/.config/dim. You may change that path if you'd like to store configuration somewhere else. You can mount as many directories containing media as you like by repeating the -v HOST_PATH:CONTAINER_PATH option. In this example, the path /media on the host is made available at the same path inside the Docker container. This name "media" is arbitrary and you can choose whatever you like.

docker run -d -p 8000:8000/tcp -v $HOME/.config/dim:/opt/dim/config -v /media:/media:ro

To use hardware acceleration, mount the relevant device:

docker run -d -p 8000:8000/tcp -v $HOME/.config/dim:/opt/dim/config -v /media:/media:ro --device=/dev/dri/renderD128

Refer to docker-compose-template.yaml to run dim using Docker Compose.

Running from source


To run from source, you'll first need to install the following dependencies on your system:

  • sqlite
  • cargo
  • rustc (nightly)
  • yarn, npm
  • libssl-dev
  • libva2 (only if you're using Linux)
  • libva-dev (only if you're using Linux)
  • libva-drm2 (only if you're using Linux)
  • ffmpeg

Once the dependencies are installed, clone the repository and build the project:

git clone
yarn --cwd ui/ && yarn --cwd ui/ build
mkdir utils && ln -nfs $(which ffmpeg) utils/ffmpeg && ln -nfs $(which ffprobe) utils/ffprobe

If you're on Linux, run dim with:

cargo run --features vaapi --release

On other platforms where libva isn't available, run dim with:

cargo run --release
