PeerTube, a free and federated video platform

Sunday 3 June 2018

A decentralized video hosting network, based on free/libre software.

PeerTube is a practical answer to all video-tubes that centralize our data and attention. With it, videos can be hosted by the people, with the people, for the people. PeerTube is a software anyone can install on a server, to get a data-friendly video-hosting platform, called a PeerTube Instance.

When you watch a video with PeerTube, the WebTorrent technology allows you to be part of the broadcasting of this video with the viewers who are watching it at the same time. This video stream sharing allows a healthier distribution of exchanges on the network.

PeerTube combines:

  • A free-libre license, that guarantees code transparency and legally allows you to use and contribute to the software;
  • A federation system, to widen the audience of the videos you host by syncing your instance with the ones you choose to (within the federation);
  • Peer-to-peer streaming, to make streaming resilient and fast when a video goes viral.

In November 2017, we raised donations from our French-speaking audience to help us finance PeerTube development and test PeerTube on a large scale. Last march, we released PeerTube in public beta! Medias, collectives, video-makers and even cities... people already made more than a hundred PeerTube instances hosting more than 7500 videos!

What is PeerTube? Why fund it?

We are not making our video-platform: we are creating a tool for anyone to make their own! The Free-Libre software licence attached to PeerTube is a legally-biding open contract. It allows anyone to use, study, adapt and contribute to PeerTube.

PeerTube gives you (or your community) the opportunity to host your own video-tube. You can emancipate yourself from data-centralizing and attention-craving platforms, without becoming another isolated video-website lost on the web.

If you host, you rule: PeerTube Instances hosters can choose their own terms and conditions, moderation management, federations settings (what other PeerTube instances you choose to follow), etc. But remember: with great power comes great responsibilities!

If we have proven that PeerTube works fine, it still needs to grow into its full potential.
