<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>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;
<strong>PeerTube 1.3</strong> added the possibility for admins to automatically quarantine new videos for new/untrusted users until a moderator reviews it. The instance's followers management was also reworked: UI is improved, follows can be denied;
<strong>PeerTube 1.4</strong> added a plugin system, and made sure plugins can for instance automatically blacklist videos or reject comments based on any rule (similar to Pleroma MRF);
<strong>PeerTube 2.0</strong> setup now asks the admin to answer questions regarding their moderation policy and dedication to it. Make a feature to automatically follow a public index of PeerTube instances part of core PeerTube, instead of leaving admins to script it themselves. This allows instance administrators to automatically follow instances of a "follow list" of their choice; a list which is self-hostable, so that communities can grow at their own pace;
<strong>PeerTube 2.1</strong> added an <em>internal</em> privacy mode to videos (such videos won't be shared outside of the instance), and added quick access to moderation tools below the comments and hooks to create registration plugins (geoblocking or captchas for example); some third-party plugins already demonstrate this ability. This release also put emphasis on describing moderation features within the interface: warnings for features that might increase moderation work like autofollow, and descriptions to the action dropdowns.
<strong>PeerTube 2.2</strong> greatly improved video abuses management (search, abuses display, actions on the video or account etc), added moderation hooks and helpers in the plugins API and Framasoft developed an experimental *Auto mute* plugin based on public lists.
<strong>PeerTube is not only open-source: it's free (as in free speech).</strong> Its free license guarantees our fundamental freedoms as users. It is this respect for our freedoms that allows Framasoft to invite you to contribute to this software, and many evolutions (innovative comment system, etc.) have already been suggested by some of you.
<strong>The video abuses management interface</strong> has also been improved: we added research filters, quick actions you can take regarding videos and accounts, video thumbnails in the chart, quick access to embed, etc.
<strong>Video imports via URL have been improved</strong>: you can now import subtitles and even get the video license and language. Quite useful when you want to duplicate a video from another PeerTube instance while keeping all the metadata.
