Framasoft only hosts and promotes one PeerTube instance: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>
Finally, we added an <em>Options</em> menu underneath users' comments to mute an account or an instance very easily.
<a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">Search</a> local or remote videos, channels and playlists
Also, Framasoft hosts and promotes only one PeerTube search index: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>
Finally, we had many feedbacks following the release of version 2.3 presenting the global search features. We feel that an important tool is missing: an independent website for the search engine that indexes PeerTube videos.

This is not true. In September 2021, the 900 instances listed on our <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">public index</a> host ~1% videos tagged as NSFW (i. e. the content is sensitive, which could be something else than pornography).
Finally, we have also implemented a system of async torrent creation on video upload in order to fix some upload errors bugs.
Use the video URL, playlist URL or channel handle/URL to fetch remote content
Finally, we have made some adjustments to the <strong>user interface</strong> so it easier and nicer to use. For instance, video thumbnails are becoming bigger so that they're more highlighted. Users now have a quick access to their library from the menu that includes their playlists, videos, video watching history and their subscriptions.
Administrators have full control of the content they want to display, and how they want to display it. In the default configuration, PeerTube hides NSFW videos.
See the dedicated section in the PeerTube documentation: <a href="" target="_blank"></a>
Your web browser sends a view to the server after 30 seconds of playback. If a video is less than 30 seconds in length, a view is sent after 75% of the video duration. After giving a view, that IP address cannot add another view in the next hour. Views are buffered, so don't panic if the view counter stays the same after you watched a video.

First of all, thank you again for contributing to PeerTube! ❤️
First of all, we realized that most people who discover PeerTube have a hard time understanding <b>the difference between a channel and an account</b>. Indeed, on others video broadcasting services (such as YouTube) these two things are pretty much the same.
Talk to administrators and moderators that are real people, not robots
Upload and import videos
First, the comments' graphic layout has been modified: it is now easier to find your way between original comments and answers. Avatars' visuals placed next to each user name have been improved and the display name (and its identifier) are now more readable. When a video maker responds to a comment on one of his videos, it is easier to identify him or her because his name is highlighted.
Upload or import videos from the web (Youtube, Dailymotion...) or from a torrent file
Set metadata: category, licence, language, tags, description, thumbnail...
Choose <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">video privacy</a>: public, unlisted, internal or private
For 2019, we plan to add a plugin and theme management system (even though basic at first), playlist management, support for audio files upload and many other features.
Add <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">subtitles</a>
Create <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">multiple channels</a> inside your account to group your videos by theme
For example, you can now create a specific transcoding profile that highlights live videos (over other videos) in terms of bandwidth. In addition, the administrator of a PeerTube instance specialized in broadcasting musical contents will be happy to know he can create a high quality audio profile.
Easily disable comments or download
Upload an audio file and an image and let PeerTube take care of creating the video!
For more details about this feature, please read our explanations on <a href="" target="_blank"></a>
<a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">Publish live videos</a> in PeerTube using your favorite RTMP compatible software (OBS, Restream, ffmpeg...)
Hide them
Create permanent lives to stream multiple times inside the same live (URL doesn't change for the viewers)
Let PeerTube create a replay of your live
Manage your channels
How do I contribute to PeerTube’s code?
Create <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">multiple channels</a> inside your account to group your videos by topic
Brand your channel using a dedicated name, a banner and an avatar
Set a <em>Support</em> button for your channel to explain how to support your work
However, many improvements of PeerTube are to be expected... Including those that would allow you to create (and choose) the monetization tools that interest you!
People can subscribe to your channel from a PeerTube website or from an ActivityPub compatible software (Mastodon, Pleroma...)
Create public <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">playlists</a> assigned to your channel to organize your content or remote videos
Being free doesn't mean being above the law! Each PeerTube hosting provider can decide on its own general conditions of use, abiding by their local laws.
For example, in France, discriminatory content <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">is prohibited</a> and may be reported to authorities. PeerTube allows users to report problematic videos, and administrator must then apply its moderation in accordance with its terms and conditions and the law.
There are none at the moment: PeerTube is a tool that we wanted neutral in terms of monetization.
For now, the solution proposed the <strong>support</strong> button under the video. This button displays a frame in which people who upload videos can display text, images, and links freely (link to Patreon, Tipeee, Paypal, Liberapay...).
If it's free, can we upload illegal stuff on it?
We did not go any further, as we refuse to tie our code to a particular content funding method, that might not fit all communities and deter others. It's the reason why we encourage developers to use the <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">PeerTube plugin API</a> to create their own monetization system.
