AllTube Download

HTML GUI for youtube-dl



From a release package

You can download the latest release package here.

You just have to unzip it on your server and it should be ready to use.

From Git

In order to get AllTube working, you need to use Composer:

composer install

This will download all the required dependencies.

You should also ensure that the templates_c folder has the right permissions:

chmod 770 templates_c/

(You need to adapt this to your permission model. You can find more information about this in the Smarty documentation.)

If your web server is Apache, you need to set the AllowOverride setting to All or FileInfo.


When updating from Git, you need to run Composer again:

git pull
composer install

On Heroku


On Cloudron

Cloudron is a complete solution for running apps on your server and keeping them up-to-date and secure.


The source code for the package can be found here.


If you want to use a custom config, you need to create a config file:

cp config/config.example.yml config/config.yml

PHP requirements

You will need PHP 7.2 (or higher) and the following PHP modules:

  • intl
  • mbstring
  • gmp

Web server configuration

If you want to serve the application under a basepath and/or with a different internal than external port (scenario: nginx->docker setup) Alltube supports the following X-Forwarded headers:

  • X-Forwarded-Host (ex.
  • X-Forwarded-Path (ex: /alltube)
  • X-Forwarded-Port (ex: 5555)
  • X-Forwarded-Proto (ex: https)


The following modules are recommended:

  • mod_mime
  • mod_rewrite
  • mod_expires
  • mod_filter
  • mod_deflate
  • mod_headers


Here is an example Nginx configuration:

server {
        server_name localhost;
        listen 443 ssl;

        root /var/www/path/to/alltube;
        index index.php;

        access_log  /var/log/nginx/alltube.access.log;
        error_log   /var/log/nginx/alltube.error.log;

        types {
                text/html   html htm shtml;
                text/css    css;
                text/xml    xml;
                application/x-web-app-manifest+json   webapp;

        # Deny access to dotfiles
        location ~ /\. {
                deny all;

        location / {
                try_files $uri /index.php?$args;

        location ~ \.php$ {
                try_files $uri /index.php?$args;

                fastcgi_param     PATH_INFO $fastcgi_path_info;
                fastcgi_param     PATH_TRANSLATED $document_root$fastcgi_path_info;
                fastcgi_param     SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;

                fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
                fastcgi_index index.php;
                fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
                fastcgi_intercept_errors off;

                fastcgi_buffer_size 16k;
                fastcgi_buffers 4 16k;

                include fastcgi_params;

Other dependencies

You need ffmpeg in order to enable conversions. (Conversions are disabled by default.)

On Debian-based systems:

sudo apt-get install ffmpeg

If your ffmpeg binary is not installed at /usr/bin/ffmpeg, you also need to edit the ffmpeg variable in config.yml.

Use as a library

The Video class is now available as a separate package so that you can reuse it in your projects.


We also provide a JSON API that you can use like this: /json?

It returns a JSON object generated by youtube-dl. You can find a list of all the properties in the youtube-dl documentation.
