Downloading PureOS. Tried watching Youtube because it's taking forever without an adblocker and wow, I have a renewed appreciation for #Peertube and a renewed fear of the direction that the internet is going in.
Uploading a few new vids to my channel that I haven't gotten around to uploading yet.
Uploading vids of birds is hardly a contribution, but wow, anything helps I guess...
It's gunna be cold, so I'll be wearing gloves and using one of those touch pens to keep me warm.
I'm trying to stay away from doing unecessary work, but I might take pictures or videos of animals while I'm out there for #Peertube. I'll keep away from blogging about it.
My latest Peertube video on my new #Peertube channel.
I've been looking into #peertube instances. I dug really deep and searched very thoroughly, and I think I really, really like diode.zone. I might move all of my stuff over to there at some point.
Which is the best #peertube instance?
Hey everyone, I sorted through the giant instance list on JoinPeertube . I sorted by version, ensuring all are 2.4.0, and by whether or not they allow signups. I also deduplicated the list, and to my surprise, it only came to 28 different instances, so I'd like to present to you this #poll .
Look at the images in my reply. Which images contain an instance that you know is actually decent?
Boosts much appreciated!
I've been thinking about creating a bot that can mirror #Youtube channels on #Peertube. Yes, I know this isn't an ideal way of growing the platform but it could be a way of drowning out all the #Gab voices that seem to be dominating at the moment.
My only rule is that the youtuber that I mirror must be aware of and allow me to mirror their content for ethical reasons, which means I'll have to convince them.
My bot will be closed source for the same reason, if I make it. Maybe we can set ...
I'm doing a #Peertube video series where I'm going to record myself drawing. I can either:
A) Upload a long, unedited version where I may chat about my day, my technique, something else or maybe no talking at all. Maybe with some bad quality chill music in the background.
B) Upload a short timelapse of myself drawing with excellent audio quality. No talking, just good music and drawing.
D) Other. Please comment.
I have a strange idea. I just found out a way I could mount my phone so it faces a table.
It gave me an idea for a series of #peertube videos, maybe one in a month, where I just sit and practice drawing. I'm not good at it, but the point of the videos wont be about how good I am. Some might watch it because they find it relaxing and I'll have music, or maybe I'll talk as I draw with little music, or maybe there's another kind of audience I might not know about. What do you guys think? #poll
New version of #Peertube coming out I see! Let's see if the platform is any more tolerable than the last time I've used it!
I know most of you wouldn't care, but an excellent addition to the pool of #peertube videos would be short videos of #birds just splashing and hanging out in a bird bath. No music, just the sound of nature.
I think it'd have its little following. If I had my own place, I'd set up a little bird sanctuary in the back yard and do this. A small, relaxing hobby project with a great reward. All videos would be licensed of course.
Turns out hundreds of #Google accounts were banned without appeal for those who used a specific emote during a #Markiplier livestream. #Youtube claimed to have fixed the damage but many say that there are still issues...
Since #Peertube 2 came out and I've changed my regular instances, I actually feel a bit better about Peertubes culture. I'm seeing 1000x less pirated My Little Pony episodes but 1000x more stabbot, which is a positive exchange. Also, I haven't seen anything from that one instance that fakes its numbers, but I still see pirated TV shows. Hopefully as time goes by, we'll see a larger diversity of content and users. Something for everyone.
Hyped about #PeerTube 2.0, especially the new player they're developing! Hopefully this marks a turning point for the community, and we'll see a better functioning varied catalogue instead of My Little Pony pirated episodes trending for 1232 days in a row on all instances.
Please don't follow me, for your own good.
