The nice folks over at Framasoft have been doing a tremendous job with PeerTube in general, and this release in particular.
For those unfamiliar, PeerTube is the Mastodon of video---a federated video platform that uses the ActivityPub protocol to connect multiple independent instances. Any individual or organization can run their own instance and have total control over their content and communities.
I am very excited to see this platform evolve and get more traction the world over. Hating on YouTube is cliché these days, but the service deserves every bit of it. And then some.
Now, I understand that people making a living out of content creation can’t move to other platforms willy nilly, but that’s exactly the reason why it’s important to get behind projects like these.
