Octopus is the web’s premier 100% open source video hosting and delivering platform. Based on the Drupal platform, Octopus offers services to video contents, providing support for video uploads, enabling you to convert to web-compatible formats for playback in Flash or HTML5, and it’s even compatible for playback on mobile devices like the iPhone, iPad, Android and other mobile setups, or share through social media sites like Twitter and Facebook.
Octopus provides the most thorough feature set of any video hosting and delivering platform. With such a feature-rich platform, any developer can easily manage everything from Video Podcasts to video blogging and much, much more.
Octopus runs on the Drupal platform with video module, developed by Heshan. It is hosted in Drupal.org at http://drupal.org/project/video, also maintained on Github at https://github.com/heidisoft/Octopus

We would like to have feedbacks on it. Hopefully we can create new sets of video themes soon.
