How to contribute?
Nevertheless, it is worth remembering that the vast majority of videos published on the Internet (and even on YouTube) are shared for non-market purposes: remuneration is a tool, but not necessarily a main or essential purpose.

Nevertheless, the ambition remains to be <strong>a free and decentralized alternative</strong>: the goal of an alternative is not to replace, but to propose something else, with different values, in parallel to what already exists.

PeerTube aspires to be a <strong>decentralized and free/libre alternative</strong> to video broadcasting services.
Localization support (as we write these lines, PeerTube is already available in 13 different languages!)
No. In December 2020, the 618 instances listed on our <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://instances.joinpeertube.org/instances">public index</a> host ~1% videos tagged as NSFW (i. e. the content is sensitive, which could be something else than pornography).
Our aim is not to replace them, but rather to simultaneously offer something else, with different values.
A federation of interconnected hosting services
PeerTube is not meant to become a huge platform that would centralize videos from all around the world.
Rather, it is <strong>a network of inter-connected small videos hosters</strong>.
Now imagine that Camille has created an account on DominiqueTube and uploads an illegal video, because this video uses music created by Solal.
Anyone with a modicum of technical skills can host a PeerTube server, aka an instance. Each instance hosts its users and their videos. In this way, <strong>every instance is created, moderated and maintained independently by various administrators.</strong>
Discover PeerTube instances
You can still watch from your account videos hosted by other instances though if the administrator of your instance had previously connected it with other instances.
Managing expectations
This is just how a <strong>federation</strong> works!
And there's more! PeerTube uses <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="https://activitypub.rocks">ActivityPub</a>, a federating protocol that <strong>allows you to interact with other software</strong>, provided they also use this protocol. For example, PeerTube and Mastodon -a Twitter alternative- are connected: <strong>you can follow a PeerTube user from Mastodon</strong> (the latest videos from the PeerTube account you follow will appear in your feed), <strong>and even comment on a PeerTube-hosted video directly from your Mastodon's account.</strong>
Many improvements interface-wise
Open-source, free/libre license code
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
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>.
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.

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.
