Congrats to Peertube for 3.0 release! Now there's official support for live streaming. Excellent job. https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/releases/tag/v3.0.0 #peertube
We're very excited (and a little bit nervous :D) that @FOSDEM@twitter.com is planning to go virtual this year via Matrix for chat/community, using @email@example.com for the video conferencing. Read all about it (and how you might be able to help!): https://matrix.org/blog/2021/01/04/taking-fosdem-online-via-matrix
Nice post from Georges about PipeWire. I got a live demo of him using Carla to route audio from a browser tab into a different browser tab the other day. Pretty cool! https://feaneron.com/2020/12/07/switching-to-pipewire/
IT'S OFFICIAL: @firstname.lastname@example.org now natively speaks Matrix!! Read all about what it takes to add native Matrix support to a large existing chat app, and bask in the glow of a world where FOSS chat is increasingly FOSS, open & interoperable once more :D 🎉🥳🍾🌉🚀 https://matrix.org/blog/2020/12/07/gitter-now-speaks-matrix
Subscribing to a PeerTube account from Mastodon is really easy!
✅ You can follow a PeerTube account from Mastodon by searching for their username and clicking the follow icon. Here's how:
1️⃣ On PeerTube, go to the account's page and click on the clipboard icon next to the user's name.
2️⃣ On Mastodon, paste the username into the search box and press enter. In the search results, click the follow button next to the username you want to follow.
Testing Peertube live streaming with OBS. I'm worried about latency - on two tests it was ~30 and ~75 seconds. That is too long for reacting to live chat etc. Is there any setting to minimize latency in Peertube? #peertube
Interesting stuff this NerfNet and TCP/IP over cheap radio. #nerfnet https://hackaday.com/2020/12/04/nerfnet-tunnels-tcp-ip-over-nrf24l01-radios/
How do I moderate/report comments on Peertube? It seems to be implemented in #2947 but I can't figure out how it works. #peertube #qoto #spam https://video.qoto.org/videos/watch/431e5639-edd0-479d-85e8-55f6feadebf5
Firefox tip: set reader.parse-on-load.force-enabled to true in about:config to always show reader mode button. #firefox
News about bundeswehr Matrix adoption in english. Also new Matrix user count mentioned: 25M+. It would be great to see Matrix as a European standard for messaging and it's a real possibility. https://element.io/blog/bwmessenger-goes-live-for-bundeswehr/ #matrix #eu
