The importance of vid quality controls
I often use YouTube/invidious over odysee or peertube due to my devices lagging either due to the device being low spec or internet connection or something else. A bunch of Odyssey and peertube videos are only available at 720p or 1080p. I'm consistently told I don't need a gaming computer and 100 Mbps to play 1080p videos without lag, but 1080p videos have been a problem across every device I've ever owned in my life, and the best device I've owned was a pixel 6, and on 75 Mbps connection. Inb4 I'm told this is my problem I should just deal. So videos of being automatically scaled down to 360p or 480p would help a lot with adoption.

I've been thinking a bit about the new analytics feature in Peertube, I'm curious what you guys think of the new features.

Are there any Marxist-Leninist instances?
I can't seem to find any ML PeerTube instances. If there is no ML PeerTube instance, then that could be a potential Lemmygrad project. [Also someone made a good point about giving tons of initial storage space.](https://lemmygrad.ml/post/222727/comment/173371)

Sustainability of peertube long term?
Creators who upload frequently can't use a non self hosted instance for long, because most of the instance have like 5 gb limits. It's pretty easy to upload over 5 gb of footage. What do creators have to do if they're not making enough/any revenue but want to upload more than 5 gb of content?

Does peertube need an algorithm?
If it were up to my opinion. the short answer is yes. if the topics/genres that I were interested in, i.e. I searched for, I clicked, gets recommended more. For a privacy perspective it might be a bad thing depending how it was implemented, it's quite unlikely that the algorithm is is done externally, or locally on a users machine, it would likely be from the server and stored there too. unless we have something like a peertube client that could sync the preference data between devices. either that, or we'll have to encrypt it. if we so care much about privacy. but decentralization definitely helps. Now on the topic of addiction is a whole another discussion, it may vary for user to user. I'm not an expert in this but for me I can control what I want to do fairly well. I tend to scroll through the recommendations at leisure, when I want to look for useful information like guides, tutorials, advice on a skill i'd use the search bar, categories, or try sift through the recommendations. *a while ago I was mindlessly scrolling and quickly made aware of it, I despised the feeling and avoided doing the same thing. other might be still stuck in a loop. i'm... not sure.* the recommendations from algorithm are the ones that had "gems" aka information that would helped me tremendously that I wasn't specifically looking for and higher quality videos. It's like a double edged sword, depending on the user's intent, or.. control of their intent. that is definitely a problem to some people, so we should give them an option to make it more adhd friendly. --- I'd like to say in defense of algorithms if it were something I knew what it was doing. I'd be in favour of. it's more of a discoverability function, like what's poppin on peertube y'know? I haven't found anything good for a while, it's very rare and like mostly found on accident or via youtube. maybe it's just that we haven't seen any massive adoption here, but I don't really know, what do you think?

So basically I'm sat here with a server that has been running for almost a month. an html website, pleroma, and peertube. basically everything I need for content creation, but I haven't done nothing, not a post (that has any value). I don't really know how to make videos, I kinda have some ideas, I have like a script writing software that I'm in the middle of figuring out.. but.. I have no idea how this thing really works. I have a set of interests already established so that's that. how does someone start out as a video content creator?

Best instance to upload content by vtubers?
Currently odysee is being used here: https://lemmy.ml/c/vtubers It’s just difficult to find a decent instance that will not auto-delete every video just because it’s technically under copyright.

who do you follow on peertube? & which instances should I follow?
I have a instance, with one person, which is I alone. I also don't follow any instances. Thought it might be a good idea to ask people who they follow for a suggestion.

Add Your Peertube instances lists here!
We have to get sepiasearch to list all instances this will also bring new content to Newpipe as they use sepiasearch for video search!

What prevents PeerTube instances from being used as Popcorn Time?
Since the videos are shared via p2p when being streamed, what prevents an instance to upload copyrighted material like Popcorn Time? Are there any instances with movies?

Sepia Search should be the default way of searching in PeerTube
I think PeerTube should have a default of searching on all instances, or at least an option. Instead of having to use Seapia Search. Why do you think this is not the case?

Do PeerTube instances have an active users/month or some other statistic to see which are the most popular?
Lemmy.ml has a users/month statistic to rank communities based on their popularity. Is there something like that in PeerTube for the different instances or channels in each instance?
