Make Your Own YouTube Clone (FOSS)

Recently stumbled across Medical Videos (“Your Online Medical Video Tube”) and found it interesting. Interesting not because I expect it to turn into a useful resource (I sort of doubt it, actually), but because of how it was made.

About a month ago, I wrote:

…Tools like Pligg let anyone make a Digg clone, so I’m betting we’ll eventually see an open-source package for making YouTube clones…

Well, Medical Videos was made with PHPmotion.

PHPmotion is a free video sharing software application that will allow you to create and run your very own video sharing website. With very little knowledge required you can now have website just like youtube.com and dailymotion.com and best of all, its 100% free to download and use.

It is free, open source software.

It has been around for at least a few months, so I’m just a doofus for not having noticed it sooner.

Whaddaya’ think? Got any ideas for a niche video sharing site?
