After a year of work and improvements, we have just released version 2 of PeerTube! Everything is explained in detail in the <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://framablog.org/2019/11/12/peertube-has-worked-twice-as-hard-to-free-your-videos-from-youtube/">Framablog article</a> that we invite you to read.
After discussing it on our forum, we feel that d.tube is not free or open source, because publishing only compiled code hinders freedom of modification.
All of this is made possible by Peertube's free/libre license (GNU-AGPL). Its code is a digital "common", that belongs to everybody, instead of a secret formula that belongs to Google (in the case of Youtube) or to Vivendi/Bolloré (Dailymotion). This free/libre license <strong>guarantees our fundamental freedoms as users and allows many contributors to offer evolutions and new features.</strong>
Allowed video space
An open code (transparency) under a free/libre license (ethic, respect and community-driven development);
An open-source, free/libre licence code
And there's more! PeerTube uses Activity Pub, a federating protocol that <strong>allows you to interact with other software</strong>, provided they also use this protocol. For example, PeerTube and Mastodon -a Twitter alternative- are connected: <strong>you can follow a PeerTube user from Mastodon</strong> (the latest videos from the PeerTube account you follow will appear in your feed), <strong>and even comment on a PeerTube-hosted video directly from your Mastodon's account.</strong>
