How to contribute a video

All videos on DevTube are crawled automatically from a list of contributed channels, that live in this GitHub repository. You cannot contribute separate videos; you can only contribute channels or playlists.

After your contribution is accepted, it takes a few days for videos do get on DevTube.

When videos appear online, you will see your karma increasing:

karma up

How to contribute a channel

You can add a channel to channels.yml. DevTube automatically discovers playlists, so you don't need to contribute each playlist separately.

Warning: we don't accept channels with promotional and commercial videos. If your channel contains commercial videos, but you still want to share some of the technical videos, please, create a playlist and share that instead.

How to edit an existing video

For each video there is a corresponding <videoId>.yml file automatically created in GitHub:<videoId>.yml

The structure of the video metadata looks like this:

    - name: Donald Trump
      twitter: realDonaldTrump
    - name: Elon Musk
      twitter: elonmusk
title: Title goes here
language: English
category: conference # or vlog
featured: true (you need to have enough karma points, see

  • Please use spaces for formatting.
  • Please, only add speaker information if it is a real person.

How to remove a video

Just create an entry in ignored.yml and explain why you think the video should be removed.

How to add a speaker

When a new video is being ingested, DevTube tries to automatically discover the speaker using a list of pre-defined speakers. You can add speakers to speakers.yml.

When you add a new speaker, videos will be iterated through and tagged during the next crawling session. It might take up to a week. If you want to assign a speaker to videos faster, manually set the speaker on each video (see How to edit an existing video).
