A YouTube video player as a Google Chrome extension



A Google Chrome extension which allows users to add YouTube videos to playlists, share playlists and discover new YouTube videos.


Streamus consists of a front-end client, the Google Chrome extension, a back-end server and a website. This repository contains the files for the server. Please see the other repositories, StreamusChromeExtension and StreamusWebsite, to gain a full understanding of the product.

The server's modules are managed by NuGet Package Manager.

The server is used to record information about a given user's listening experience. All videos, playlist items, playlists and folders are written to the database. The server is used to enable sharing of playlists between users by copying a playlist row and providing a link to the new row to other users.



  1. Build 'Streamus Server' in Visual Studio 2012.
  2. Build 'Streamus Server Tests' in Visual Studio 2012.
  3. Create a new, local database called 'Streamus'
  4. Run the test case 'ResetDatabase' to populate the database with tables and schema information.
  5. Ensure all other test cases pass.
  6. Run Streamus Server.


The server is hosted on AWS. To deploy, publish the solution to AWS via Visual Studio. Note that the web.config file will not be overidden as to not misconfigure the database connection strings.
