<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>
<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"!
A few months after PeerTube V2 announcement, we are pleased to announce you that version 2.1 has been released. Here's a quick overview of the features it brings...
A more relevant search, with the ability to set advanced filters (duration, category, tags...)
After showcasing our roadmap for PeerTube V3, we are happy to announce that version 2.2 is out. Let's look around and see what it brings us...
As a result, on your PeerTube website, the audience will be able to watch not only your videos, but also videos hosted by Zaïd, Catherin or Solar... without having to host their videos on your PeerTube-powered website. Such diversity in a video-catalog makes it very attractive. Such a large choice and diversity of videos is what made centralized platforms such as YouTube succesful.
Company, association, community...
Before this peer-to-peer broadcast, successful videographers (or videos that make the buzz) were doomed to be hosted by a web giant whose infrastructure can handle millions of simultaneous views... Or to pay for a very expensive independent video host so that it can hold the load.

<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>

Broadcast message system that allows instances administrators to display information to people who visit it is now active. This is a handy feature to indicate that your instance will be in maintenance on a certain day and that the service might be disrupted... or anything else!
We recommend you to create your own digital identity, without using "PeerTube" for your project (software name, website domain...) to not confuse people about who is behind the website/project.
For now, the solution proposed to people who upload videos is to use the "support" button under the video. This button displays a frame in which people who upload videos can display text, images, and links freely. For example, it's possible to put a link to Patreon, Tipeee, Paypal, Liberapay (or any other solution) there. Other examples: put a postal address if you'd like to receive physical thank-you cards, put a logo of your enterprise, a link to support a non-profit organisation...

<a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://docs.joinpeertube.org/use-watch-video">Share</a> the video or the playlist URL/embed with attributes (automatically start/stop at, loop enabled, muted...)
Comment, reply and rate videos using PeerTube or an ActivityPub compatible software (Mastodon, Pleroma...)
