"Another" world cannot be built using surveillance capitalism's tools.
"It's outrageous and unconscious: you're releasing PeerTube's version x.y.z when it doesn't contain the necessary tools to effectively manage videos claimed by rights holders, or to effectively manage the issue of online harassment in comments, or to effectively manage monetization through advertising, or to (insert here your request to PeerTube). It will never work! What do you intend to do about it?"

<a href="https://framablog.org/2020/05/26/our-plans-for-peertube-v3-progressive-fundraising-live-streaming-coming-next-fall">Read Framasoft's statement on the Framablog</a>
<a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://docs.joinpeertube.org">PeerTube's official documentation site</a> (administration and use);
<p>The biggest challenge of live streaming on PeerTube is to <strong>get the live stream to be peer-to-peer</strong>.
After extensive testing, we believe this is possible.</p>

<p>By using the HLS technology that has been built into the PeerTube video player since version 1.3, we believe
we can <strong>create a live stream with one minute of lag between streamers and viewers</strong>.</p>

<p>We want to lay the technological foundation for this live stream feature, so <strong>this first version of
PeerTube Live will be minimalist</strong>. There will be no stream captation tools, no built-in chat, no react emojis...</p>

<p>However, we want to make sure that <strong>once the live stream is over, the video will be processed and
added to the creator's channel</strong>, with every requirement for proper federation checked.</p>
<p>Today, when searching for videos on a PeerTube instance, it is hard to
<strong>find content that is not in the federation bubble</strong> of that instance.</p>

<p>We will create a <strong>server that indexes all videos</strong>
and channels from all PeerTube instances that are listed on
<a href="https://instances.joinpeertube.org/">the public directory</a>.
The code for this indexing engine will be open source,
so that anyone can host their own by setting their own eligibility rules.</p>

<p>Each PeerTube instance administrator will be able to choose to <strong>
use one of these indexing engines for their instance's search bar</strong>.</p>

<p>In addition, <strong>announcements</strong>
will allow instance administrators to display information to visitors.</p>
<p>While each new version of PeerTube has brought <a
href="https://joinpeertube.org/faq#peertube-developers-did-not-add-moderation-tools">new moderation features</a>,
there is still much to be done to <strong>facilitate moderation</strong> of content and accounts within the fediverse.
That's why we want to <strong>dedicate a month to the development of new moderation tools</strong>.</p>

<p>The list of features we have to develop or improve is long: reports logs and monitoring, moderation history,
comments moderation, moderation reports related to an account, feedback on steps taken (or not) following a report,
<strong>fight against spam</strong>, sharing blacklists of instances, accounts or content...</p>

<p>This list is being built
<a href="https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/labels/Component%3A%20Moderation%20%3Agodmode%3A"><strong>in collaboration with the community</strong></a>,
and it is with these needs in mind that we will try to prioritize the moderation tools developed during this month.</p>
<p>While it is easy to embed a PeerTube video on a website or social media, the same cannot be said for playlists.
We want to rework the <strong>embed and display of playlists</strong> on third party websites.</p>

<p>We also want to <strong>allow two clips of the same video to be displayed in a playlist</strong>. Combined with the ability to
extract a specific piece of video in a playlist, <strong>playlists will thus become very useful remixing tools</strong>,
for example for educational purposes.</p>

<p>Plugins allow anyone to contribute to new PeerTube features by coding them into PeerTube, and offer them to instance
administrators. We want to <strong>improve the plugin system</strong> to offer more interaction possibilities.</p>

<p>In order to put ourselves in their contributors' shoes, we are going to create a few plugins of our own,
for example one to <strong>display information over a video to annotate it</strong> at a specific point in the viewing process.</p>

<p>Finally, we want to work on <strong>selecting a set of plugins to showcase</strong> them on joinpeertube.org.</p>
<strong>But PeerTube doesn't centralize: it federates.</strong> Thanks to the <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://activitypub.rocks">ActivityPub</a> protocol (also used by <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://joinmastodon.org">the Mastodon federation</a>, a free/libre Twitter alternative), PeerTube can federate several small hosters so they don't have to buy thousands of hard disks to host videos for the whole world.
<strong>Framasoft</strong> (that's us!) is a French non-for-profit organization created in 2004, dedicated <strong>to popular education</strong> on digital matters. Our small association (under 40 members, under 10 employees) is known to have made the <a href="https://degooglisons-internet.org">"De-google-ify the Internet" project</a>, offering 34 ethical and alternative online tools.
<strong>It's software you install on your server</strong> to create a website where videos are hosted and broadcast... Basically: you create your own "homemade YouTube"!
<strong>PeerTube 1.1</strong> added bulk actions in the admin users table and instance/account muting;
<strong>PeerTube 1.2</strong> added the ability to unfederate a video on blacklist; the notification system now shows reports, and new users;
