From that moment on, Dominique is responsible, because they are warned that they're hosting an illegal video. It is therefore up to them to act if they don't want to be held accountable before the law.

Nope. In December 2020, the 618 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, instance administrators can now <strong>choose how many simultaneous transcoding jobs</strong> they support. Of course, transcoding several videos at once requires an important computing power. If you want to allow the transcoding of more than one video at once on your instance, make sure you have the proper hardware.
Finally, the collaborative translation of PeerTube's contents is now done using <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Weblate</a>, which is much more powerful and pleasant to use than the tool we we're using until now (Zanata).
PeerTube is just a software: it's not Framasoft (non-profit that develops PeerTube) that's <a href="#who-is-responsible-for-content-published-on-peertube">responsible</a> for the content published on some instances.
PeerTube is not a service, PeerTube is free software. This means that anyone can download and install PeerTube to host videos on a specific domain name (this is called "hosting a PeerTube instance/website"). Framasoft has no control over who downloads PeerTube, and who installs or uses it. Nor does Microsoft or Adobe have any control over who uses Word or Photoshop and for what purposes.
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.

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.
Finally, we have also implemented a system of async torrent creation on video upload in order to fix some upload errors bugs.
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 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.
Use the video URL, playlist URL or channel handle/URL to fetch remote content
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
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 and import videos

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
Easily disable comments or download
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.
For more details about this feature, please read our explanations on <a href="" target="_blank"></a>
Upload an audio file and an image and let PeerTube take care of creating the video!
