phpReel CMS and

phpReel is a free, MIT licensed, open-source CMS that helps you build your own subscription-based video streaming platform.

Some of the most important features:

  • Subscription system and payment gateway powered by Stripe.
  • Store the content locally, directly on the server, on the cloud with Amazon S3 and stream it from there or just embed videos from third-party video hosts such as Vimeo or YouTube.
  • Upload and stream large video files by chunking them into small pieces.
  • Customize the look and functionality of the platform by creating new themes (including child themes) and modules.
  • Use the phpReel API to access, control, or modify core functionality by calling pre-built methods right from your custom themes or modules.
  • Create and manage translation right from the dashboard.

At its core phpReel is powered by Laravel so anyone familiar with the framework should find working with the CMS rather familiar.
