note: no particular code review is expected due to the amount of changes brought in this PR. Common Lives are PeerTube videos with a special flag For now we handle live streams only with RTMP prot…
Nice, but we still need to find a way to attract people from ***tube
Maybe ***tube will all of a sudden add ads to every video and not pay the creators unless they are registered partners… oh wait, they just did that!
I guess the existence of PeerTube is getting known more broadly, and I think what could happen eventually is YT fucking up in some way, that some major content creators that have funding secured through patreon publicly and in an organised fashion set up their own instance(s) or leave for something like TILvids.
Similar happened before when a lot of big names left for blip.tv way back when.
And from Twitch
I can’t wait until my instance adopts this!

A simple IRC livechat based on KiwiIRC should not be too difficult to add…
That either adds a new dependency for instance admins to worry about (run your own IRC) or reduces decentralization of the network (someone has to run a centralized IRC that most/all Peertube instances connect to).
Yeah that’s a good point, I hadn’t considered the streamer could set the channel.
They’ve mentioned that this first version of streaming will have no chat or emote features. No mention of whether they plan on bringing them at a later date, but they probably just want to stay laser-focused on getting streaming working as best as possible first.
