PeerTube Presentation PeerTube Παρουσίαση
PeerTube is software that you install on a web server. It allows you to create a video hosting website, so create your "homemade YouTube".
The difference to YouTube is that it's not intended to create a huge platform centralizing videos from the whole world on a single server farm (which is horribly expensive).
On the contrary, PeerTube's concept is to create a network of multiple small interconnected video hosting providers.
PeerTube is unique because (as far as we know) it's the only video hosting web application which combines three advantages:
An open code under a free/libre license
PeerTube is freely provided, no need to pay to install it on your server;
We can look under the hood of PeerTube (its source code): it's auditable, transparent;
It can be enhanced by everyone's contributions.
A federation of interconnected hosting providers Μια ομοσπονδία των διασυνδεδεμένων υπηρεσιών φιλοξενίας
It decentralizes video storage and decision-making power;
We can display videos and accounts of other PeerTube websites;
It's based on <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://activitypub.rocks">ActivityPub</a> to connect with tools <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://peertube.cpy.re/videos/watch/da2b08d4-a242-4170-b32a-4ec8cbdca701">like Mastodon</a> for example.
Peer-to-peer broadcasting ζωντανή ροή peer-to-peer
It reduces server bandwidth overload if a video becomes viral;
We become an actor of the video broadcasting;
It's based on <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebRTC">WebRTC</a>, a free and open-source project for web browsers.
PeerTube is developed by <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://framasoft.org">Framasoft</a>, a French non-profit popular educational organization on digital issues.
It employs a developer, <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://github.com/Chocobozzz">Chocobozzz</a>, who works since 2018 on PeerTube projects:
