There has been a lot of work done to create decentralized freedom-respecting services in recent years. (Lemmy is obviously one of these). That being said video hosting seems to be one of the hardest things to replace with a decentralized solution since video files are so large and therefore expensive to host. The only serious attempt at a decentralized youtube replacement I’ve heard of is LBRY, but I have a general skepticism about blockchain-based businesses, and the available technical information released by the company behind LBRY does not alleviate those concerns. I don’t really have any solutions to this issue, I currently just use youtube with sandboxing, but this is obviously not a great situation. Curious about everyone else’s thoughts.
