PeerTube is currently in alpha and will be beta in March. It is free software, decentralized, shared and based on the principle of instance. Indeed, everyone can create his own instance and share his content with the content of other instances. This gives it complete freedom of expression, a neutral service, a much greater diversity of content, and even the possibility of paying videographers based on fairer and different models. But above all, to offer a free alternative to GAFAMs and their model. For more information, visit the FramaTube website, proposed by the Framasoft association.

Pros:

  • P2P streaming allows for slower networks for server operators
  • federation allows combining media from multiple servers

Cons:

  • installation requires thousands of JS packages to be installed

The only federated youtube alternative. Having support for activitypub in a video hosting platform is a great idea

When you visit the Peertube site and see that Extinction Rebellion is a promoted platform that is a massive turn off straight away, also very odd because YouTube/Google is very much in bed with XR.

I was on PeertubeUK for less than two minutes when i stumbled across a proud and activly PRO-peadophilia channel. Three years later someone explained to me that it can sometime take the moderator a couple of weeks to notice and ban these channels. So i went back and double checked. Not only was "Peadophilia Is OK" still there, but it was in the most popular section, with literally one hudred times the views of the average channel on there.

This unfortunately is one of the trade-offs for decentralization - it attracts those types shunned from other services.

PeerTube is free (as in freedom) server software and thus, anyone can host it; as a result, FramaSoft does not have the ability to control who can use their software without compromising their ideals. This is an issue for whoever hosts the instance, not the software itself.

PeerTube is full of nazis and endorses copyright infringement.
