PeerTube version 1.0's first beta has released
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 Mastodon and Pleroma.
- 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
