I don't use it very often. I just threw it up on a Linode with minimal effort so I could have a working live streaming setup. You'll note from the readme:

>This is the website for my self-hosted livestreaming platform (aka bag of hacks dumped into a server).

PeerTube is nice in theory but in practice it's been really really unreliable for me.

Why not simply stream to somewhere live Twitch/YouTube and have them serve the recording offline later on?

I try to avoid proprietary services.

You know, YouTube is pretty easy. I bet someone could implement it in an afternoon and a dozen lines of shell script...

Is this a challenge?

A weekend at most.

WORST—-and I mean WORST—case, could crank out a clone during a hack week.

Never tried yet for hosting content, however I've read good things about Lbry.


Ah yes, we needed another blockchain to solve this problem. Perfect.

The amusement here being that git itself is Merkel trees ;-)

(And yes, I've seen, and boosted, your Mastodon tirade, and am ... apprehensive in commenting here.)

Not many people know that these trees were invented by the German federal chancellor Angela Merkel.

(they were not, this is a shitpost, they're actually called Merkle trees)


Damned edit window...

What's wrong with blockchain? Honest question since I've never used them.
