PeerTube Video Platform Comes With P2P Live Streaming

PeerTube is a free and open-source decentralized video platform alternative to YouTube. The great feature of the new v3 is Live Streaming.

Above all, PeerTube is a free and open-source, decentralized, federated video platform. It uses peer-to-peer technology to reduce load on individual servers when viewing videos. Hosting companies can install this software on their servers and create PeerTube website where users can view and upload videos as an alternative to YouTube.

In other words, it is a piece of software that enables anyone to run their own tube site (like YouTube) very easily. All of the sites everyone runs can talk to each other, and people with accounts on one can interact with people on others. So it is also a network of tube sites.
