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 I am in the camp of going to the platform (LBRY) to see your videos. However, I do like the this *bonus clip!
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 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»
The #Fediverse 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.
I am partial, in concept, to #peertube for video, because it shares the reader and publisher's resources to distribute the content (and, incidentally, this makes it resistant to server overload since the more people viewing means the more seeds available.)
And on #federated #socialmedia the audience can all display the same events - whether it's a video, a photo, an essay-length article, or a brief #toot. And everyone can respond directly, with text or media, via their #fediverse server.
The content makers can get money on the platform, but with a currently-smaller audience of course it will probably be less.
But my point is not to solely host content on Peertube. It can automagically embed in various blogs, sites, feeds, etc. from there due to #ActivityPub, including bridging to Youtube. From a content maker POV it is the #DRY or #WORA equivalent; you only need to upload it once to use it everywhere.
And then that community factor of #p2p - share your bandwidth.
@lunduke only on Mastodon. You don't need to support Twitter with your video uploads.
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! 😯
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'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.
