About peer-to-peer broadcasting and watching
Moderation tools: on the road to 2.4
The PeerTube software can, whenever necessary, use a peer-to-peer protocol (P2P) to broadcast viral videos, <strong>lowering the load of their hosts.</strong>
In this way, when you watch a video, your computer contributes to its broadcast. If a lot of people are watching the same video at the same time, their browser automatically send smalls pieces of the video to the other viewers. <strong>The server resources are not over-exploited</strong>: the stream is split, the network optimized.
More and more pleasant interfaces
More details on our plans can be found on the <a target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" href="https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/projects/6">PeerTube Github page</a>. Please note that these are the main features and developments. They can evolve due to circumstances, contributions, timings, etc. To be informed of any change, <a target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" href="https://framalistes.org/sympa/subscribe/peertube-newsletter">subscribe to PeerTube newsletter</a>.
It might not look like it, but thanks to peer-to-peer broadcasting, popular video makers and their videos are no longer forced to be hosted by big companies, whose infrastructure can stand thousands of views at the same time... or to pay for a robust but extremely expensive independent video host.

Peer-to-peer broadcasting – and therefore viewing – (so no slowing down when a video becomes viral).
Who is behind
Peertube is a <strong>free/libre software funded by a French non-profit organization</strong>: Framasoft
Peer-to-peer broadcasting allows, thanks to the <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebRTC">WebRTC</a> protocol, that Internet users who watch the same video at the same time exchange bits of files, which relieves the server.
Moreover, you can ask questions on <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://framacolibri.org/c/qualite/peertube">the PeerTube forum</a>. You can also contact us directly on <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://contact.framasoft.org">https://contact.framasoft.org.</a>
By <strong>filtering according to your profile</strong> (video maker or viewer), <strong>themes</strong> that you are looking for or <strong>languages</strong> you speak, <strong>find an instance whose rules match your needs!</strong>
Our organization started in 2004, and now devotes itself <strong>to popular education about digital technology issues.</strong> We are a small structure of less than 40 members and under 10 employees, well-known for the De-google-ify Internet project, when we offered 34 ethical and alternative online tools. As a public interest organization, <strong>over 90% of our funding comes from donations</strong> (tax deductible for French taxpayers).
Thanks to our <a href="/hall-of-fame" target="_blank">crowdfunding (from March to July 2018)</a>, <strong>Framasoft were able to employ PeerTube's main developer.</strong> After a beta release in March 2018, release 1 came out in November 2018. Since then, several intermediary releases have brought many features along. Several collectives have already created PeerTube hosts, laying the foundation for the federation.
The more people use, support, and contribute to PeerTube, the quicker it will become a concrete alternative to platforms like YouTube.

PeerTube v3 is out, with p2p livestreaming
If you would like to interact with videos (like, comment, download...), subscribe to channels, create playlists or play videos, then all you have to do is <strong>create an account on the PeerTube instance of your choice.</strong>
PeerTube instances
1. Find the instance that suits you best
New features on content moderation
By <strong>filtering according to your profile</strong> (video maker or viewer), <strong>topics</strong> that you are looking for or <strong>languages</strong> you speak, <strong>find an instance whose rules match your needs!</strong>
New plugins for varied experiences
We did not go any further to not impose, in the code, a political vision of cultural content funding. It's the reason why we encourage developers to use the <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://docs.joinpeertube.org/contribute-plugins">PeerTube plugin API</a> to create their own monetization system.
2. Create your account and enjoy PeerTube
We have a policy for contributions related to security. Please refer to <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/blob/develop/SECURITY.md">SECURITY.md</a>.
A username, an email, a password and you can already <strong>enjoy all the features of PeerTube!</strong>

Notifications have been improved: now, when an account has been muted (either by a user or an admin) the notification of their actions are deleted, which comes really handy when someone is having an activity peak and you d'ont want to clean your notifications one by one ;).
Let's pave the way to PeerTube live streaming in v3!
