Because of the #youtube ban, #blender foundation is now testing #peertube as a video distribution model https://video.blender.org/
@judeswae Sad that this is how it had to happen. But thankful to everyone that has allowed this to be a serious alternative to look at.
@judeswaeCan someone explain the ban to me? I read a discussion earlier but I didn't quite understand it...
@Mopsitravels This blog post will tell you all: https://www.blender.org/media-exposure/youtube-blocks-blender-videos-worldwide/
@judeswae We can only hope this happens more. Peertube needs a ton of work but its super promising!
@judeswae A lot of the videos only have one peer, anyone know if it's possible for me to help "seed"?
@judeswae Figured it out, just go to download > torrent and open the torrent using #WebTorrent (so that the web peers can access it).
@judeswae Adoption by one or two big players in the initial stages might help federated platforms grow fast. Mastodon had pawoo.net and a few other Japanese companies adopting it before it got so popular.
