We wanted to do something that wasn't just a web app
What it does
Transforms your files into encoded mp4 files and uploads them to youtube or vimeo, and lets you download them wherever you want, making youtube or vimeo an unlimited cloud storage service.
How we built it
We used open source code in C and C++ for transforming and encoding files, MEAN stack to make the web app and user front end, and python to tie it all up.
Challenges we ran into
Everything: from building insanely big C++ libraries, and youtube playing hard to get by compressing and messing up our files.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We successfully stored files disguised as videos on video sharing sites.
What we learned
Don't try to build and install clang in the middle of a Hackathon. And never try to figure out youtube... its like that crazy girlfriend that keeps you close enough that you wont ditch her, but she just doesn't care about you :( ... also sleep deprivation is bad for code
What's next for CloudTube
Making it stable and work for better correction algorithm implementations.
