Is there value in using social media, micro-blogging services (like Twitter, Librem Social, etc.) as a publishing platform for video creators?

Not to advertise the shows... to actually publish ON them?

Is that convenient?

Is that annoying?

Who knows! Let's find out!

@lunduke If there was greater integration between software like , etc. and then we may have a winning combination that could possibly give the public a viable, free speech alternative to .

@terryenglish @lunduke
LBRY is really nice
It just doesnt have the entire user base of the fediverse

@misslav @terryenglish @lunduke what exactly does LBRY do better than PeerTube? My only complaint with PeerTube is that some instances are ridiculously slow to load videos.

@mikemac @terryenglish @lunduke
I dont ever really have slow loading unless its like a few hr long video but thats since i use the desktop client witch downloads the videos insted of streaming like the web client

Even with it being still in beta it works great on desktop

@mikemac
I agree that lbry is great. It would just be nice to see something free and open source take down YouTube.
@misslav

@mikemac @misslav @terryenglish @lunduke
So far, I haven't run into a video that's not "available"(no peers) on lbry. I ran into that all the time on peertube.

@ericbarry

@mikemac @misslav @lunduke
Do and share the same technological foundation? I know they're both peer to peer but does Peertube make use of the blockchain as well?

@terryenglish @mikemac @misslav @lunduke
I don't believe so. That could be the factor here. Far as I know relies on seeds just like torrent. I'm not as educated as I'd like to be at this point.

@ericbarry
I guess as long as something decentralized and free/open-source knocks down I'll be happy. That platform has continued to get worse and worse since acquired it.
@mikemac @misslav @lunduke

@ericbarry @terryenglish @misslav @lunduke what does blockchain accomplish (or how is it being used) in a video sharing platform? How is it hosted? I tried to read up on it, but the details eluded me.

@terryenglish @ericbarry @mikemac @lunduke
I dont think peertube or really any fediverse implementation uses block chain
Or im talking out of my ass

@ericbarry @mikemac @terryenglish @lunduke
Thats mainly because they have a main server that syncs with the nodes

@misslav

@lunduke
If the can deliver stable and high quality live streaming/video hosting that would entice a lot of content creators to come aboard. There's lots of "controversial" content creators that are looking for a new home from .

@terryenglish @lunduke Not if their goal is to censor your account cause you are too much for them.

@lunduke I am in the camp of going to the platform (LBRY) to see your videos. However, I do like the this *bonus clip!

@lunduke
To be honest, I don't subscribe to any changes on YouTube or lbry it any other streaming platform. In the case of your show, I actually do wait for you to post here on librem social.

@lunduke Nope, I don't subscribe to any social media feed to get video. Also, the video quality was pretty bad.

@lunduke
works better on my phone than my RSS reader, the app doesn't even open lbry links for me (or maybe mine's just out of date: it's not on ), and using youtube feels plain bad.

@zachdecook @lunduke RSS feeds are great but have had a decline in support.

But, otherwise I prefer playing your show up on LBRY or Invidious (PeerTube Perhaps?).

The issue is the notification management sucks for these. RSS is much better.
(marking as read and whatnot)

@lunduke I personally don't mind if a creator posts links to their videos on twitter. But I will only subscribe if they also provide unique content on that platform. If they just external link dump, I'll unsubscribe.

@lunduke this is much more convenient. If the show gets hosted on any activitypub platform that means i never have to leave the app I use to browse mastodon, which to me is a good thing.
Two minutes and 20 seconds is a bit in the short side though :p just quit twitter and come straight to peertube/mastodon? 😅

@lunduke if you use peertube it will be posted in the fediverse (mastodon, pozelfed, pleroma etc.) as if they were on those platforms.

Maybe if there was a fork of peertube they could call something like librem.video or something, peertube would have a cool instance to push the platform to the next level. 😁

Don’t know how they’d feel about it but hearing with them about it wouldn’t hurt I guess.

@lunduke people will also be able to comment on videos using mastodon without needing a peertube account by replying to he peertube video «toot»

@lunduke Mmm, the lilliputian show was a bit due to time limit.

The has no such limitations. And a reply can be anything - a response podcast is an option.

If Fediverse is the primary publishing platform, which is then bridged to Youtube and other corporate walled gardens, I think you could save some time/effort in publishing. And, within the fora, it would at least be more convenient for *me* - they all come in through whatever client I choose. It's all about me.

@lunduke only on Mastodon. You don't need to support Twitter with your video uploads.

@lunduke
I'm subscribed to a few on social media for their videos. But yep, I mostly go to the original site to view the video, especially if on Youtube, as that shows on the monitor I use for video content.

@lunduke i love it.. Keep them coming. ..and consider uploading the longer format videos to peertube. You are one of a few content creaters who keep me imprisoned in 'planet google' .. Ironic isn't it! 😯

@lunduke
Huh. I never considered the idea of a show being hosted *on* micro blogging platforms. That actually kind of gives me an idea...

@lunduke I'd follow an account that just posted videos, kinda like RSS.

@lunduke I'm seeing this 5 days later, because I forget I have social media and just don't log in very often. I'm mostly found on lbry.
