Calling all independence supporters & Yessers.

It would super to have a (dedicated?) PeerTube instance/account for hosting related videos for the Fediverse. That way, I could link to videos without using Google services.

Anyone?

Asking this question in a different way.

Recommendations please for a PeerTube instance with good availability, good performance and open registration.

Any other comments about PeerTube welcomed.

ANNOUNCEMENT

I am delighted to announce my new PeerTube channel for Yes & Scottish independence related video content.

Please feel free to suggest any content for the channel. Videos must be related to the cause of Scottish independence, and have a suitable free licence. When making suggestions please provide the URL for the existing video, and which licence the content is under.

Ooh, that's a shame!
I've only uploaded four videos, and I've already used 2GB out of my max of 5GB. I'll need to re-think the strategy.

The Nation Series doesn't have a playlist. Any ideas how to identify them?

@fitheach I'll find links, I downloaded them previously but might be easiest to import directly from yt

@jk
Thanks. I'll get on to it.
Do you have any means of contacting Phantom Power. Their videos are CC licenced, but as a matter of courtesy I'd like to drop them a line.

@fitheach I'm having problems subscribing from (two different) Mastodon instances. It's entirely possible the problem is at my end! But let me know if anyone else is having trouble.

@rodti
I didn't even realise you *could* follow from a Mastodon account. I'll try it myself, and see what happens.

@rodti
I entered
@ fitheach @ mstdn .io
(spaces added intentionally so it isn't recognised here)
and the remote subscribe button remained inactive.
I changed it to [email protected] and the button became active, but will that work?

@fitheach When I subscribed to highvoltage.tv I used my Mastodon account in 'email format' - [email protected] - and it worked.

@fitheach To be fair I'd not ever tried to subscribe to Peertube, so just tried a random stream on highvoltage.tv and it worked as expected...

@rodti @fitheach I've tried following too from my pleroma account and not sure that it's working - status at my end is 'awaiting approval'

@jk
I received notification that you had subscribed.

@rodti

@fitheach @jk Not on my Mastodon follow list so it's not connected.

@rodti @jk
I can see JK following in my PeerTube notifications. Nothing for rodti, or for myself

JK - how did you enter your handle?

@fitheach @jk I've just managed to subscribe to mytape.org too. I think there might be something up with vid.lelux.fi's configuration? Tried subscribing to the video you've just posted and that fails too.

@fitheach

It seems the request is potentially hitting the peertube server but not successfully completing

I've tried by using the channel url via glitch frontend (mastodon-like) and by the remote follow button on the peertube page.. neither are completing for me

@rodti

@fitheach @jk I got in touch with the admin of that Peertube instance. They've restarted the instance and it's working now 🙂

@rodti @fitheach nice one! it turns out there is a known issue between peertube and pleroma so will still be broken for me for some time to come.

@jk @fitheach Bah! Well half the problem's solved at least.

@jk
I got an email notification that @rodti had subscribed. Interactivity between Fediverse instances seems to mostly just work, between platforms perhaps has a bit to go yet.

@fitheach I only saw 3 videos.
You could host your own peertube?
I haven't looked into installing it.

I know you know that. It's for the benefit of others who may not. 4€/mo is doable for most ppl.

@fitheach 14h00 here and I'm off for a walk, but I will check it out when I get back home.

@fitheach Watched them. Really liked the second one especially.
I didn't quite finish the 3rd one, because I was getting a bit wound up and I'm not even scottish!

@gemlog
All of the Phantom Power videos are well done. Made to a high standard, even though they have miniscule budgets.
