https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=18123862 is great. Really, really great. No idea why it's not more widely recognized or used.





(also shilling)

Another similar site (that a friend of mine built) is TeamFlix. He built it to stream with his brother and didn't find any alternatives (this was a few years ago now).

I am not shilling, I found the site just yesterday after much effort in searching and I am usually pretty good at searching. Learning it was basically a family effort: my brother and I have been online since 1993 and he has a librarian degree and I am a software developer / hacker and this combo has led to much expertise. My brother is better -- he can search in languages he can't read or write. It's like a magic trick.

Have you ever tried to suss out how he is able conduct web searches so effectively? Would be interested in what you learned.


Also Togethr.TV (https://togethr.tv). Created by me some years ago! People can watch videos together and chat (text/audio) and some other features.

The one about works with local files. For my purposes it's much better than YouTube.

It works with local files as well using the Streamer (Windows only) and it works with many more websites than YouTube as well.
