Reclaiming RSS

“Before Twitter, before algorithmic timelines filtered our reality for us, before surveillance capitalism, there was RSS: Really Simple Syndication … As we move away from the centralised web to the peer web, it’s time to rediscover, re-embrace, and reclaim RSS.”

Tips for 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.
