Uploading with Golang

What You Will Need

To make API requests you will need your Cloudflare API key, your email address and your Cloudflare account ID.

You will also need to import a tus client. You can use the go-tus by eventials to upload from your Go applications.


package main

import (

	tus "github.com/eventials/go-tus"

func main() {
	accountID := "ACCOUNT ID"

	f, err := os.Open("videofile.mp4")

	if err != nil {

	defer f.Close()

	headers := make(http.Header)
	headers.Add("X-Auth-Email", "{EMAIL}")
	headers.Add("X-Auth-Key", "{API KEY}")

	config := &tus.Config{
		ChunkSize:           5 * 1024 * 1024, // Cloudflare Stream requires a minimum chunk size of 5MB.
		Resume:              false,
		OverridePatchMethod: false,
		Store:               nil,
		Header:              headers,
		Transport:           nil,

	client, _ := tus.NewClient("https://api.cloudflare.com/client/v4/accounts/"+ accountID +"/media", config)

	upload, _ := tus.NewUploadFromFile(f)

	uploader, _ := client.CreateUpload(upload)


You can also get the progress of the upload if you’re running the upload in a goroutine.

// returns the progress percentage.

// returns whether or not the upload is complete.

Please see go-tus on Github for functionality such as resuming uploads and getting more details about the progress of the upload.
