We made a fork of the android app a while back that had YouTube functionality. I don't think it ever got finished so we didn't submit a PR. I'll see if I can find the code later and put it up so you can get a head start at least.

Hey all,

If someone has the time to work on this, what you need to do is upload to a third party like YouTube first, then save the link. Since I'm not a mobile dev, I'm not sure how complicated this might be on Android.

Hope this helps.

Hi community,

After some investigation from Giuseppe and myself, we found out that the android ushahidi app does not support uploading videos (ushahidi v2.6).

Would you know if anybody on the community is interested on building such feature?

Hello Tarik,


I do suggest you to use the Ushahidi 2.7.x because it features the app you need and the polygon function when submitting a report: which is not available at the moment in the Ushahidi 3.0 beta. Feel free to ask me anything about your deployment J

Subject: [ushahidi developers] Re: Ushahidi Android App




We are building an Ushahidi instance to open up to engage citizens on the constitutional process in Libya. The current site under development is http://dostourlibya.com


We want to add a feature where citizens will use their smartphones to record a video and upload it to our ushahidi site. We found out that the feature is implemented for iPhones but not for android.


Is anybody working or interested on building this feature on the community?
