Hey there! πŸ‘‹

A number of people over past few months have assumed I'm a bot or some kind of automated account.

I can assure you I am not, there is a human being behind this keyboard! I write and post everything manually, there's no scheduling or scripts or stuff like that.

If you have any questions about the Fediverse, or requests or suggestions or comments or feedback just @ or DM me, I will try to help if I can.

The aim of this account is to help and encourage people use the , even with the most basic things. There's no such thing as a stupid question! πŸ‘

@feditips He there! =) Thanks for encouraging people to ask questions!

Just yesterday I was wondering if I can follow peertube accounts from my mastodon or friendica account? And if I can even like videos on peertube from my mastodon or friendica account?


Yes, you can do all those things :blobhappy: Easiest way to explain this is if you try it out.

For example try following @pianotv and interacting with the videos there from within Mastodon (and I think it works in Friendica too). If you want to see what the account looks like in PeerTube, click on the profile's avatar photo.

There are interesting PeerTube videos and accounts to follow at @FediVideos (which is currently focusing on Halloween, but normally posts general interest videos).

@feditips @FediVideos @pianotv Thanks!

Yeah I tried it and following peertube channels from mastodon works great. Alas, I can't seem to like some videos. When I try to like one of @pianotv videos I am asked again to login (with user name and password) to the Tilvids instance. Which I can not since I don't have an account there. Signing up on each accout to like videos seems counter-fedi-tuitive. Is this a bug?`

@torsten_torsten @FediVideos

You don't need to be in PeerTube to like PeerTube videos.

Just go to the post you want to like within Mastodon, then click on the like button (the star) while still within Mastodon.

(I've attached a photo to illustrate)

You don't need to click on the link to view the video, just press play. Replies to the post are added to the video as comments, and likes on the post are added as likes.

It's all seamless!
