CyTube is a project I started in early 2013 as a hobby project to build my own clone of (which shut down in March 2013).

The basic concept is that users register channels where connected viewers can watch videos from different video hosts (e.g., YouTube, Twitch) and the playback is synchronized for all the viewers in the channel.

Each channel has a playlist where users can queue up videos to play, as well as an integrated chatroom for discussion.

The official server is located at, but there are other public servers hosted for various communities.


The installation guide for server administrators is located on the wiki.
