PeerTube is a free, libre and federated video platform. Video is a very popular class of content and meanwhile accounts for a signicant share of internet traffic, but the choice of hosting has a lot of implications - if you send your viewers to some proprietary platform because you want to avoid cost, what happens after they watch your video? And who watches them watch? PeerTube allows for a federation of interconnected hosts (so more choice of videos wherever you go to see them) while containing the risk of exposing users to profiling, algorithmic pressure that favors extreme content, censorship and other negative aspects of centralised services like YouTube or Vimeo. PeerTube implements the ActivityPub standard and works with peer-to-peer distribution - and therefore viewing. This means no slowing down when a video suddenly goes viral, and much lower distribution costs thanks to shared bandwidth. PeerTube aims to make it easier to host videos on the server side, while remaining practical, ethical and fun on the Internet user side. In this project, Framasoft will work on PeerTube 4.0 with interesting new features such as better search, live streaming, channel customisation and improved accessibility.
