SteemPlus 2.21: Earn more by posting to DTube via SteemPlus

in utopian-io •  2 months ago

You can now post videos to DTube directly from SteemPlus and earn more in the process.
Read on to know how!

A win - win - win

In a similar manner than our partnership with Utopian, the goal is to make everyone benefit from this feature.
By posting to DTube via SteemPlus, there are three winners! DTube, SteemPlus and most importantly, you!


You are eligible to DTube curation, just like you would have been if posting the video directly from DTube's website, but you do not need to quit Steemit for that anymore.

You will also accumulate SteemPlus points by posting on DTube, that will result on votes from the @steem-plus account according to your share (see the chapter on SteemPlus points below) of the points. These points will also be useful for buying SteemPlus Premium features coming soon.


DTube can reach more Steemians with the possibility to post directly from Steemit, with SteemPlus setting the beneficiaries automatically.


Posting to DTube via SteemPlus also helps us keep going on developing awesome features for SteemPlus.
We take 1% beneficiaries on each post, but the total amount of beneificiaries stays the same for you.

Note about the beneficiary rewards

The total amount paid to beneficiaries is still 25% so you do not need to worry about earning less!
1% goes to SteemPlus(@steemplus-pay) and 24% to DTube curators (@dtube.rewards).

Great! How do I use it ?

First make sure you are using the latest version of SteemPlus (v2.21). Either install it from here or update it from your Chrome Extension tab. For installation procedures on Firefox or Opera, please check the bottom of our README.

You have the good version, great let's go!

  1. Go to or refresh the page if you're already there.
  2. Login via SteemConnect (click the grey SteemPlus logo near your photo on Steemit). If you do not connect via SteemConnect, none of the following steps will work.
  3. Click on the Create Post button (sounds familiar?)
  4. Before writing your post, start by entering the dtube tag on the tag input and let the magic happen.
  5. A popup will open in which you can upload the Video and Thumbnail, either with a drag and drop or by Uploading it from your folder.
  6. You can keep editing the content of your post while the video is uploading. It might take a while.
  7. If you need to go back to the popup to change the video or thumbnail. click on "Open DTube modal". You cannot submit your post to DTube if the video or thumbnail is missing.
  8. Get your DTube upvote!
  9. Earn SteemPlus Points!

More about SteemPlus Points

Besides DTube, SteemPlus has also partnered with Utopian, MinnowBooster and PostPromoter to make access to their services easier. (Boost button on the bottom of each post).

Using the Post with DTube,Post with Utopian feature or the Boost Button will earn you SteemPlus points proportionnally to the amount sent to the boost service or to the payout of your Utopian contribution.

The percentage of the points you own will later on determine the percentage of the SteemPlus vote you will receive each day. This system will be ready by next week but you can already start earning points to get a bigger part of the cake when the votes start coming (There will be at least 15k SP invested).

At term the SteemPlus Points will also be used to buy premium features and much more. I'll get into more details later this month.

Thank you for your feedback !


Thank you for your review, @helo!

So far this week you've reviewed 5 contributions. Keep up the good work!

@stoodkev, currently need to research which witness votes I have that are now working on EOS so I can remove them and then happy to add you. Your plugin is awesome! I am typing the @dtube tag in and no popup is showing so far.


Thanks for your support! =)


Anytime and thank you for the quick help, I just needed to push spacebar after typing the tag dtube in FYI those of you curious and stuck at the same place I was... lol


Yes the space bar thing caught me out at first too. :-)


it gets the best of us apparently!

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your work! I'll just say thank you!


You re very welcome!

Great incentive and features that are being added here. Collaborations between dApps are more than healthy for the blockchain!

Looking forward to try this new way to post on @dtube through steemit!

Very good initiative of Steem plus.
I am using the extension apps and will apply the following step for my Dtube contents.

Wow very great feature. It's seem easier to upload our videos to Dtube. Thanks for that.

Very good feature. Now it will be easier for the users to upload video to DTube.

It is very good idea. We can post directly from steemit. I am exciting to see premium features.

Snap Man! You are single handedly saving Steemit's website! LOL! Good job!


@cedricguillas is also helping a lot so I would say four handedly =D


Hour-Handedly then! LOL!! I'm just glad we have folks working to make this environment better and better.

Another unexpected but fantastic addition! I post to DTube regularly so will certainly be using this from now on!!

Thank you!!

doesn't really work unfortunately


Sometimes it takes a while, just as it does on DTube, we re using the same server.


uploaded the same video via - done in 3 mins


My colleague tells me that changing tab during the upload could cause problems.
We ll try to fix this ASAP. In the meantime, try to stay on the tab until the end of the upload.


I see... yeah maybe it's fixed for my next vid :)


Ok I checked for 20mn and whatever I do it s working but it s very slow when lots of videos in the queue. I guess you were just unlucky and tried to upload when the queue was too long, the Sprite Creation can also take a while.
You said it worked on DTube, but my guess is that if you d have done it on DTube at that moment, it would have taken the same time, since our process is exactly the same.

Thanks for the information. I'm thinking about posting videos to DTube.

I used this for the first time this moring to post my video and although my Dtube video has posted ok, I cannot seem to find it under the 'new' section of Dtube. On my Steemit feed under the Dtube tag I can see my video clearly but whe I check on Dtube my video isn't under the 'new' tag but other peoples are. I have never had this happen before so is it because I used steem plus.


Post please?
If that is the post two hours ago, you removed the dtube tag as leading tag, so the video was not posted to dtube.


Im not sure what I did, to be honest, I thought I did use Dtube for my first tag but looking at it now I see that it's not. It was my first time using, so if that is the issue I will double make sure to check that the Dtube tag is first. I feel silly. Thanks a lot for your help and have a good day. :)


No problem, have a great one too =)

Congrats, this post is featured on my daily news show (in Chinese :D) for today! Posted with Steemplus, absolutely cool!!


Awesome to see you using it =)


It was fun experience. Thanks for making this function possible. I’ll see you at SF3!

You have provided a great interface for posting on Dtube. Also it's offering more function than steemit beta. Though I am new at here. But I am working with YouTube from 2010 and planning to working on Dtube. Again thanks @steem-plus, this will help me a lot.

Hey, @steem-plus!

Thanks for contributing on Utopian.

I just tried the dtube upload and it stalled at the encoding stage but I get this with dtube quite a lot anyway and just have to try again.

However I have 2 dtube accounts and there is no indication of which one it is trying to upload to. Could you please add the option to choose the account?

Thank you!


The upload time would be the same as on DTube since we re using the same server.
The account you re uploading to is the account you used when connecting to SteemConnect.


Yes the time is the same but it sometimes gets stuck at the encoding stage. It's been like that for months though and it's no big deal. Always seems to work the second time! :-)

Ah of course it would be the SteemConnect account!! Silly me! Thanks!

Tengo servicios visuales para potenciar la captación de usuarios! Sea con diseños, video clip, animaciones infograficas.

Hmm it looks interesting! I'm just at start, but I'll learn it better and I think I'll setup steemplus!

Good post @steem-plus saya suka dengan postingan anda

Hi! I use Firefox, but I decided to install SteemPlus into Chrome and I got a problem. Steemconnect and steemit are both throwing me out non-stop and asking to sign in endlessly and I can't use anything. Any ideas?
