    I love Peertube but but finding content can be challenging at times. I just added it so hopefully this helps. Should make de-googling much easier.

      Yeah it’s like that way for me too, looking for content apart from Linux that interests me is little challenging.

      For some reason PeerTube instances seem to take a whitelist approach where all other federated services take a blacklist approach.

      Peervideo.club seems to have the largest federation w/open sign-ups but the “trending” page is full of weird hentai porn shit that’s several years old.

      Also it appears to be not working at the moment…

        That’s definitely not the type of stuff I’d like to discover there. Decentralization is great but not if it just means hyper localization to the point that it’s hard to see content from other instances. It seems like the development of Peertube has gotten pretty stagnant, especially compared to other platforms on the Fediverse. A few years ago it ranked just behind Mastodon in monthly active users . Since then the Fediverse has gotten much more active and the developers of Mastodon, Pixelfed and Lemmy have all adjusted to it and made advances in their software, overtaking Peertube in Monthly Active Users. Hopefully the developers at Peertube can make some similar adjustments to bring in more users and more content.

    I was able to find a peertube counterpart of a small content creator talking about restoring the E&N railway. It was a welcome surprise to be sure.

    There is one thing I noticed about this extension is that it doesn’t always work with a creator latest upload.
