Im curious what people think about peertube, please boost for exposure. if you wanna get more specific just reply tell me what you think. i dont know that much about it, im just trying to size it up as a youtube alternative
@Dayglochainsaw i like it conceptually, but haven't bothered to check it out
@Dayglochainsaw Only reason I'm not using it is because nobody else does! (:
(I don't make videos, just watch them occasionally. As far as I know, it just doesn't have all that much stuff on there yet.)
@Dayglochainsaw I was looking into it and seeing if it could be a viable YouTube alternative for me, but it's too complicated for me to decipher. If it were easier for a non-tech person to use or understand, it'd get more creators there.
@Dayglochainsaw my take is, when i get around to making the stuff i have planned, i'll put stuff on there but like, also on youtube, cos everyone uses youtube, and its easier. i think, compared to the jump from twitter to masto, it is more difficult, especially since making videos is harder/takes more effort than just posting, so for a decent sized community based around video making, it would require a lot more people, which would be difficult to actually get going, overall it seems cool, but im kinda skeptical
@Dayglochainsaw last time I checked it was missing robust anti harrassment tools. it's also missing developers who recognize how important such tools are. dead to me till that changes
@Dayglochainsaw My experience with it is pretty much "good but limited". i only use it when i want to upload videos that are too large to upload to Mastodon directly & it works fine for that, for me.
I think it's the most promising solution.
It also integrates well with other ActivityPub federation.
You can subscribe to a Peertube feed right from your Mastodon instance by just entering the peertube user id in the search field. Federation is neat.
You can test it subscribing to art or geotechland:
@Dayglochainsaw the thing that peertube is missing is any reason for me to watch anything on there. I get it's a chicken and egg problem between creators and viewers but man it sucks right now.
