[1/2] In light of recent events, we removed our (little) content from LBRY/Odysee, and will be happy to accept suggestions for an alternative privacy-oriented video hosting platform for future content.

The increasing "cryptocurrency" focus of the platform design is, predictably, distracting from making and consuming actual content. It is essentially a trading platform, with fees for content creation, constant buy/sell mechanisms that mess with the usability.


[2/2] Furthermore, the management (see @OdyseeTeam / @LBRYcom on Twitter) is not only immature and overly focused on the cryptocurrency (reads "get rich") part, but also making... arguable claims on women and people on the autistic spectrum.

On the other hand, , looks overall more genuine and FOSS-friendly, so we will probably have better luck there!

@tuxdevices I think PeerTube is a good choice. If you don't want to self-host make sure to choose a good tech-oriented instance like, TILvids, Linuxrocks or This is where audience probably is and it will improve discoverability of your content.

FYI @ericbuijs and @tuxdevices there’s Sepia Search for PeerTube so don’t worry too much about reach, just choose an instance the best fit your technical and ethical criteria.

@tuxdevices Looks like somebody didn't get the joke. The internet is hard sometimes... :(

@tuxdevices recent events? it was a cryptocoin and app long before the odysee front end...
