Free open source YouTube-clone alternatives for DIY hosting?

BlueToast (1224550) writes "With the recent waves of content ID take-downs and backlash, what alternatives and options do YouTube content creators have to host videos themselves while still having the user friendliness of YouTube video browsing, channel management, editing, annotations, and highly-compatible automated video transcoding processing?

I like being able to take recordings straight from my phone and camcorder and upload them straight to YouTube and be automatically processed into different quality versions and guaranteed compatibility, but do not have the same experience with DIY self-hosted solutions that often are sensitive to the video format and troublesome to get working in Flash/HTML5-players. I just want to have something as easy to install and configure like WordPress while being as functional and powerful as YouTube and in my full control through my own resources. I have uses for this privately on company intranets and in public on the web."
