Dejavideo is discontinued, but I'm currently working on dejavideo2, built from scratch with Node+Express in the backend and Angular in the frontend.

Tested in PHP 5.3

Stream your own videos easily, either on your private network or to the world using HTML5 video. I use the app to share all my videos from my main device to any devices in the house connected to the Wi-Fi, including tablets and smartphones. Fully functional without JavaScript and Flash.


JavaScript independent features:

  • Responsive design with beautiful columns for desktop, smartphones and tablets.
  • Autodetects captions (.vtt files must have the same name as the video except the extension, and must be placed either in the same directory or in a subfolder subs/).
  • Convenient renaming of filenames via regular expressions (pattern - replacement).
  • Folder contents count and file details (size and modification date).
  • Indefinitely recursive listings.

Added features that require JavaScript:

  • Support for Videojs.
  • Video support detection. Unsopported files in the current browser are marked and links to the video are disabled.
  • Added controls for video playback.
  • Intuitive additions to Video.js: full screen on double click (or pinch on touch screens thanks to Hammer.js), autohide for control bar…
  • Recent files bar that scrolls horizontally by dragging it.
  • Ability to delete files.
  • Custom start time by adding a number of seconds after the hash (ie. url#60 would make the video start at minute 1). The URL gets periodical updates so you can keep the link and start where you left off.

Video support *

  • Theora (usually with .ogv or .ogg filename extensions)
  • H.264, (.mp4, .mkv, .3gp)
  • V8 (.webm)

* Actual support depends on the browser of choice. Learn more at

How to install

Copy the application on a folder on your web root and put your videos inside the data/ folder (alternatively, you can create a symlink to any folder on your system), organised in subfolders or however you prefer. Access the app by a local URL like localhost/dejavideo. Enjoy!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
