Une application android pour regarder et témécharger des films, des séries et des animés
Cette application open source peut afficher des médias depuis de nombreuses sources
(from the official repository)
The app is purely for educational and personal use.
CloudStream 3 does not host any content on the app, and has no control over what media is put up or taken down. CloudStream 3 functions like any other search engine, such as Google. CloudStream 3 does not host, upload or manage any videos, films or content. It simply crawls, aggregates and displayes links in a convenient, user-friendly interface.
It merely scrapes 3rd-party websites that are publicly accessable via any regular web browser.
It is the responsibility of user to avoid any actions that might violate the laws governing his/her locality.
Use CloudStream 3 at your own risk.
With Cloudstream-3 you can stream media from various sources (developed mainly by the community) such as:
You can download media (movies, series and animes) files anywhere on your phone or external storage
When you search for a media, cloudstream will search every provider to see if it has that media or not.
You can change the list of used providers with the settings button in the search page
You can also enable foreign languages providers (such as french) under:
Settings page > Provider Languages
and tick the ones you want there
How does it work ?
Basicaly this app send requests to different websites (also called sources or providers) to find movies, series and animes and display them in the app nicely
100% free and no ads!
This app doesn't contain any ads and is completly free to download, as a result this app doesn't make any money from someone using the app.
But you can still help it's developement:
By contributing to the code of the app itself (requires Kotlin knowledge)
By adding other providers (it requires Kotlin knowledge)
By translating the app in an other language
By adding a star to the project on github
By donating money directly to the project (requires money)
The user interface is truly outstanding and in my opinion better than some official streaming plateforms (I am looking at you amazon video)
Even if this app is close to perfection, it isn't perfect (yet)
Indeed, the content is scrapped from various streaming websites, the main issue with this approach is that those websites can go down, change their url or even break.
This raises errors such as:
- "No link found" (meaning that the direct link can't be loaded)
Edit: This issue has been partially addressed the devs, if a site goes down, it will not be displayed by the app
- Not being able to stream to Google Cast (a file format issue)
also the devs only talk about 🍌
You can download this app on android, android TV and FireTV Stick it is unfortunately not avalaible on ios or on desktop
First of all, you have to choose between two types of apps, the pre-release and the release, each of them have their pros and cons, you can switch at any time but you will lose your download history and settings.
let's compare those two options:
pre-release (the beta version)
- You have all of the latest features and fixes for the providers
- some stuff in the app might break (like the player or naviguation)
- Update are pushed at every small update (commit), so you have to install the app more often (it can be annoying for slow connections)
I personally went for pre-release because I want the latest version (with all the new features) and I don't mind updating often
- You don't have the lastest fixes and features
- You have stability, the app almost never break in release
- No need to update as often as in pre-release
Installing the apk
once you chose which variant of the app you want to use, head over to the release page
you now have to download the .apk file on this page (according to the choice you made earlier)
apk files are executable files that contains the application code, it is the only way to download this app since it's not on the play store
Once you downloaded the apk, open the file
A popup will tell you that the installation from unkown sources is disabled, this is normal behaviour.
Click the "settings" button of that popup and then click "allow this source"
You are done with the settings, you can go back and press the install button of the popup.
Congrats 🎉🎉 You successfuly installed Cloudstream-3
