When viewed from Mastodon, PeerTube accounts look and work like Mastodon accounts. However, if you click on their profile image you will see their PeerTube page.

@feditips Thanks for giving an overview of "Some good PeerTube instances".

What were your criteria for selecting these 8 #PeerTube instances? Uptime? Moderation? Instance rules? Most recent PeerTube release? Long-term commitment to run the instance?

Thanks in advance. I am looking for a reliable and non-fake-news instance and I had been dissapointed twice so far.


Mainly the moderation and content quality. I have another account @FediVideos which recommends videos on the Fediverse and most of them come from these instances.

I will not recommend a peertube instance with any hate/conspiracy content.

@feditips Also note that you can create a Matrix room, add the RSS Bot and subscribe to a Peertube channel -> you got a chat room about the channel with automatic notifications when content is added. Magic of open standards.
