Of course, PeerTube's video player adapts to your situation: if your installation does not allow peer-to-peer playback (corporate network, recalcitrant browser, etc.) video playback will be done in the classic way.
Many improvements on accessibility
Open-source, free/libre license code
Mainstream online video broadcasting services make money off of your data by analyzing your interactions so that they can then bombard your with targeted advertising.
Many other improvements have been made in this new version. You can see the complete list on <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/releases/tag/v1.3.0">https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/releases/tag/v1.3.0</a>.
Peertube is not subject to any corporate monopoly, does not rely on ads and <strong>does not track you.</strong>

One of the benefits is that <strong>you become a part of the broadcasting of the videos you are watching</strong>. If other people are watching a PeerTube video at the same time as you, as long as your tab remains open, your browser shares bits of that video and you participate in a healthier use of the Internet.

Most importantly, <strong>you are a person to PeerTube, not a product in need of profiling so as to be stuck in video loops.</strong> For example, PeerTube doesn't use any biased recommendation algorithms to keep you online for hours on end.

All of this is made possible by Peertube's free/libre license (GNU-AGPL). Its code is a digital "common", that belongs to everybody, instead of a secret formula that belongs to Google (in the case of Youtube) or to Vivendi/Bolloré (Dailymotion). This free/libre license <strong>guarantees our fundamental freedoms as users and allows many contributors to offer evolutions and new features.</strong>
Are you a video maker?
With PeerTube, choose <strong>your hosting company and the rules you believe in.</strong>
Meanwhile, we have developed an information message system which allow PeerTube instance administrators to display information to people who visit it. This is very handy to indicate that your instance will be in maintenance on a certain day at a certain time and that the service may be disrupted.
YouTube has clearly gone astray: its hoster, Google-Alphabet, can enforce its ContentID system (the infamous "Robocopyright") or its videos recommendation system, all of which appear to be as obscure as unfair.
Direct contact with a human-scale hoster allows for two things: you no longer are the client of a huge tech company, and <strong>you can nurture a special relationship with your hoster, who distributes your data.</strong>

With PeerTube, you get to choose your hosting provider according to their terms of use, such as their disk space limit per user, their moderation policy, who they chose to federate with... You are not speaking with a huge tech company, so you can talk it out in case of any issue, need, desire...

About peer-to-peer broadcasting and watching
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>
Moderation tools: on the road to 2.4
More and more pleasant interfaces
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 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
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.
Peertube is a <strong>free/libre software funded by a French non-profit organization</strong>: Framasoft
Moreover, you can ask questions on <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://framacolibri.org/c/qualite/peertube">the PeerTube forum</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.

New plugins for varied experiences
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>
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.
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>.
