PeerTube 1.0 : a free and federated video plateforme

Peertube is a federation of sites that host videos. PeerTube uses WebTorrent technology. Each server hosts a torrent and each web browser viewing a video reshares it. This allows to share the load between the server itself and the clients as well as the bandwidth used through P2P technology.

The system works via a federation of instances run by independent entities. Each PeerTube server can host any number of videos by itself, and can additionally federate with other servers to let users watch. This federation permits to collectively host a large number of videos in a unified platform, without having to build an infrastructure comparable to that of the web giants. Each server is operated by and stays under the sole administration of a distinct entity.

PeerTube uses the ActivityPub protocol, in order to allow decentralization and compatibility with other services such as Hubzilla, Mastodon

15th of October 2018 the first version 1.0.0 has been relases.
