What is
? ?
PeerTube aspires to be a <strong>decentralized and free/libre alternative</strong> to video broadcasting services.
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>.
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.
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>
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.
Peertube is not subject to any corporate monopoly, does not rely on ads and <strong>does not track you.</strong>
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>
