Simply making the software/content Free won't fix shit for the people who are at risk from, e.g., gun-toting misogynistic white nationalist conspiracy theorist Let's Players.

Tips for #peertube users when working within your instances storage limit.
1) Start learning about codes and bit rates. Vp9 and setting your bit rates low really are your friend.
2) Ask yourself how high a quality does your video really need. Why not use 720p instead of 1080p. If your doing vlogs just talking to the camera, do you even need to be in HD?
You can lead a horse to water but you can't teach it to fish for the rest of its life.
