Good point about the torrent cloud bringing its own exposure. It's an important note that in my perception not too many peertubers have on the radar. Also note this is not true for Tor facing instances.
And neither for connections with a proper VPN with killswitch.
@Matter I have a question though, what is the biggest PeerTube instance? That does the most traffic? I mean I can do 30TB/month on a $20/month server, bandwidth isn't really that tough. I could implement WebTorrent (and ActivityPub) if I wanted but personally I don't want WebTorrent because it adds complexity and, catastrophically, it's not a secure viewing experience since your IP is publicly viewable.
@nodetube Some reasons NodeTube is not a viable alternative to PeerTube to me:
No federation: I'm not making an account for each server (and there should be many servers, of course), with PeerTube I can comment with an existing Mastodon account.
Not scalable to a lot of concurrent viewers: you're limited to the upload bandwidth of the server. PeerTube gets faster when more people watch the video, NodeTube breaks.
Some minor bad points: you promote Discord, reCaptcha, Heroku.
@nodetube This is not to say I don't like what you're doing. I think your considerable talent would be better spent at helping on PeerTube, but maybe it's good to have some options available for ethical video hosting.
My thoughts on PeerTube:
I personally don't like the user experience. And I'm not really sure what problem it's trying to solve, it seems to me to be more of like a coding experiment than say NodeTube which is created to allow easy transmission of information. But personally I don't like the feel of it but technically it's quite well put together, I tried an upload and from a technical level it's quite advanced, I didn't really like it much though I prefer NodeTube's user experience by far
@nodetube I do, but of course it's all about critical mass! If you're connected with any of the developers/development, how about some keyboard controls for back/forward/pause/playback speed :)
WIAT THIS MEME HAD A FULL STORY?????????????
