@rigelk No, I haven't seen it yet, thank you!
@rigelk Much more helpful than the short table, but unfortunately also lacks some information like HTTP upload, limits and following NFSW instances or allowing such content
@mxmehl I know. Unfortunately that's not something I have included in the table (yet) :/
Until then the best option is probably to ask on the peertube hashtag like you did, and reach out to admins of instances with matching criteria in the meantime.
Note that admins can override quota on a per-user basis. So asking nicely can get you more quota. It's even a common thing to see instance admins put a low quota and explicitly ask their users in the terms of usage to reach out for more. It prevents blatant spam and at least establishes a link with the admin.
Note that the HTTP import feature can be disabled/enabled by an instance admin, but it will only affect the web interface, not scripts that do the import on your computer before doing a regular upload (like the peertube remote tools do: https://docs.joinpeertube.org/lang/en/docs/cli/add.html).
Good luck on your search for a new (video) home!
@rigelk Very useful information, thank you! I didn't know about the CLI tools, that would be totally fine for us. Thanks for providing the overview and giving handy tips :)
@mxmehl @fsfe I would recommend setting up own instance of #peertube - in that way you'll be able to configure transcoding settings yourself and have as much space you need. It's pretty straightforward to setup and I bet you'll already have dependencies like PostgreSQL, Nginx, etc. in your infrastructure 😉 https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/blob/develop/support/doc/production.md
@mxmehl @fsfe pe.ertu.be is still open for registration, federates with basically everyone, and gives an initial quota of 20GB (2GB a day upload limit), which can probably be upped if you ask nicely and donate to help cover their costs... They're hosted in Germany and allow http import, but nsfw content must be tagged so I guess it's allowed.
Or, you know, host your own #PeerTube instance and you can have it exactly the way you want ;)
There is also https://videosdulib.re/ a french instance dedicated to FLOSS-related videos, but you'll need to contact their admin through their "about" page (IIRC, it's Tetaneutral a french non-profit ISP, member of https://www.ffdn.org/en ).
I know it depends on your needs and means, but simple curiosity: have you thought about hosting your own instance? What is stopping you from doing it?
@mxmehl @AlienSpoon Thank you for your answer! It's really precious to us, as it's by understanding each expereience that we'll learn how to help people adopt this tool ;).
I really think Videodulib.re fits your needs, but I don't know if they still have welcoming capacity (diskspace, etc.)...
Please keep us posted, we are here if you need any advice!
@alex Yes, we have considered that but would like to join an existing community, and not overburden our volunteering system admins if there is no pressing need.
Regarding Framasoft, I'm not sure they would describe themselves as the European equivalent of FSF. That's rather what @fsfe is, but even there with sometimes different focuses and strategies, and competely independent from its sister organisation ;)
@mxmehl @fsfe You got already plenty of responses. A few months ago I register a FSFE account at peertube.social and at pixelfed.social for the same reasons we have chosen mastodon.social. But never really used it beside two test pictures on pixelfed. I'm happy to hand over the credentials, just ping my by mail. Of course we can also use any other instance...
@bjoern Oh cool, can you please send them to me? Peertube.social seems to be fine after the input I got
@mxmehl of course one can!
but also that wealthy entities could lead by example, and rather use their resources (especially when making the political compromise to get moniez from the enemies of the people!) to provide infrastructure for others, rather than depending on others resources/infrastructure!
@jz We are no professional online service provider (nevertheless we offer quite a few platforms https://wiki.fsfe.org/TechDocs/Services). We use our resources to politically, legacy and publicly fight for Free Software, e.g. with freeyourandroid.org, publiccode.eu, savecodeshare.eu or fsfe.org/activities/radiodirective. I don't see the evil you proclaim
@carxwol @fsfe Depends. We would really like to join an existing community and contribute back to it. We also had mixed experiences with companies hosting services pro bono for us. Any way, it might make more sense for the company to spin up a instance on their own or support existing installations, so as many Peertube users as possible could profit. What do you think?
@mxmehl @fsfe What about DevTube https://devtube.dev-wiki.de ?I'm a Co-Admin there.The instance is pretty new but already has a few users.There is no overall storage limit but a 2GB daily upload limit which can be increased for you if needed.The server is hosted in Germany and the admin lives in Austria and the two co-admins in Germany.As we're pretty new into this topic,I don't know what HTTP import should do but I'm sure we could enable it if that isn't already done.Would be very cool to have FSFE here 🎉
@mikael Hard to say, 10GB might be useful for the next months as we intend to increase our usage of videos (talk recordings, campaign videos, interviews...). But we would love to join an existing community instead of launching our own new service
