Actually, I was just thinking of something like this. In particular, I'd like to be able to keep tabs on a group of YouTube creators, without being dependent on the whims and machinations of what the YouTube team wants to promote. There are also certain creators who post to both YouTube and BitChute, but prefer BitChute, and I'd like to have a browser that will show me the BitChute version preferentially, without my having to think about it.

what's BitChute? Never heard of it.

Basically, a somewhat decentralized YouTube implemented on top of BitTorrent.

In a similar fashion, there is also PeerTube. A decentralized video hosting network, based on free/libre software.


I have no involvement with them, but I like the PeerTube project. Might contribute to it in the future.

Theoretically, a distributed video-hosting platform. In our less perfect reality, the landfill for stuff thrown off YouTube.
