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;

PeerTube is developed by <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">Framasoft</a>, a French non-profit popular educational organization on digital issues.
It employs a developer, <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">Chocobozzz</a>, who works since 2018 on PeerTube projects:
Development of new features and software maintenance;
displaying sensitive video thumbnails or not,
Thoughts on the architecture, the design and the future of PeerTube;
New stable releases preparation and communication (blog posts, changelog, etc.);
