PeerTube version 1.0's first beta has released

Written about 2 years ago by IanDorfman

PeerTube, an open source and decentralized alternative to YouTube and other video sharing sites, has reached a feature-rich enough state for its developers to consider it version 1.0. 1.0's first beta release includes a user interface overhaul and implementation of federated commenting. Alongside federated commentating, this release also enables users to follow PeerTube channels through their instances of Small Mastodon iconMastodon and Small Pleroma iconPleroma.

Sean Tilley wrote an article on Small Medium iconMedium that includes this changelog:

  • Admins can now customize instances using CSS and JS, a win for content providers who want to add their own branding
  • Videos can be mirrored directly from YouTube / Vimeo / Dailymotion, or practically any site supported by the youtube-dl library.
  • File transcoding can now be turned on or off for a particular instance
  • Support for video in portrait mode
  • Support for iOS devices
