Peertube plugin livechat

Integrated chat for Peertube live streams

The Peertube project aims to offer a free, decentralized, and sovereign alternative to video-on-demand platforms. Since its 3.0.0 version it is possible to live stream. However, the Peertube team has chosen not to integrate a chat system, but rather to offer the necessary tools so that it is possible to integrate this functionality via plugins. It is in this context that the "Peertube Livechat" plugin was launched in 2021. This project - already installed on nearly 250 Peertube instances - has grown with time, and already provides a serious alternative to existing proprietary systems. However, there are still some steps to be done to offer the same level of service as these commercial platforms: manage the decentralization allowed by Peertube at the chat level, possibility of automatic moderation, streamer/viewer interaction tools, improve and complete the translations of the software, improve its documentation, think about the numerous requests of the community, and so on.
