Maybe some people here will be interested. Many of us have concerns about big data providers like Google/Youtube and how they dictate their terms as well as use our data. Were you guys aware that a few weeks ago, the Blender channel was blocked by Youtube basically because they refused to monetize their videos? (Ok it is more complicated than that, still...) https://www.blender.org/media-exposure/ ... worldwide/
PeerTube is a project aiming to offer an open source, distributed (peer-to-peer) video sharing platform. It just completed a successful crowdfunding campaign which reached more than twice their minimal goal.

It's in beta right now, the crowdfunding will allow them to work on a v1.0 to be released next October. But it's already possible to join an instance to upload videos. No need to join to watch videos, but there is not much stuff yet, and the several instances each with its own bank of videos is a little confusing ATM. If I understand correctly, V1 will address this.
Whenever (if ) I resume making FreeCAD videos, I may give it a shot. Altough some people may not be comfortable with a peer-to-peer platform to view videos? It does require tracking your IP address while you watch (and distribute) a video. On the other hand, all websites log IP addresses.
Oh, and there's a great thing about it: there is a download button for videos.
Pinging a few guys who might be interested:
How about a PeerTube instance on freecad.io? (j/k)kkremitzki wrote:ping
I haven't found any FreeCAD-related video on a PeerTube instance yet. Who will be the first?
@Kurt @Yorik: would it be possible to make the forum's video tag compatible with PeerTube?
Here's one video link:
