As you might have seen from the last boost, PeerTube's latest version now supports "ability to automatically import all videos from a remote channel (from another video platform)".

What does this mean?

It means you can automatically import your videos from YouTube to PeerTube 🥳

What are the main differences - advantages and disadvantages - between #PeerTube and #Odysee?

I've never tried PeerTube, nevertheless Odysee makes part of my daily routine and I find it great, principally because of the Odysee Browser Extension.

And this feature YouTube->Odysee already existed.

Odysee is built around blockchain and cryptocurrency :vomit:

PeerTube isn't 🥳

Also, PeerTube is part of the Fediverse so you can follow and interact with PeerTube accounts from Mastodon etc. You can try it right now for accounts like @veronicaexplains_channel

@feditips @B1rn3 @veronicaexplains_channel Also Odysee's theoretically decentralized, but in practice, isn't.

Peertube is actually decentralized.

@malin @feditips @B1rn3 @veronicaexplains_channel hey, but what about monetization, huh?

You can post a video on PeerTube instance. But will you get money like YouTube does?

Odysee does. YouTube does. Peertube....?

@expertmanofficial @malin @B1rn3 @veronicaexplains_channel

No, YouTube increasingly doesn't.

The reason so many YT videos nowadays have sponsors is because YT monetisation has gone down the toilet, especially for small indie makers.

In-video sponsors are platform neutral, they don't care which platform your videos are on as long as people are watching your videos. For example @thelinuxexperiment has sponsors on their videos on all platforms including PeerTube.

As for Odysee, it's from cryptocurrency so I would stay as far away from it as possible.

Why? Could you explain, or provide me some article?

Both seems decentralized enough to me.

@B1rn3 No need for articles - we can go direct.

lbry has odyssee [end list].

Peertube has ... well just look for them, there are loads.

@feditips Oh, does that mean I'm scheduled for another update? Yep, it seems that I am. I just managed to get 4.2 running. I'm glad to see the updates, but I really like to step back and decide when I want to do them. Because "going smoothly" seems to be the exception rather than the rule. And sometimes... It's so bad as to be, "OK just start from scratch." Though I can't confirm I have ever experienced that with PeerTube.

That would've been terribly useful for me about 2 months, though kind of superfluous now. 😅

Glad to see the improvement, though.
