Basically, I’ve done another very kuoushi thing and created my own PeerTube instance, which basically functions as a self-hosted YouTube. This means I’m going to go back through the archive and get all of it on there so I can fully ignore YouTube. Of course that means I’m using my own bandwidth to host videos with whatever downtimes come with that, but that’s okay. I like being the equivalent of an internet hermit up in the backwoods just doing my own thing. Plus, PeerTube allows…live streaming? I’m still getting that working, but apparently I can potentially even cut out Twitch. Not that I should, but it’ll be nice to offer an alternative stream for people who don’t want to deal with the ads or anything.
As far as what is currently on PeerTube? I’ve put the current set of F.E.A.R. streams on there if you’d like to test that out. It’s not as feature-rich as YouTube, but I can offer chapters for highlights, plus full resolution/240p transcodes in case someone doesn’t have decent enough bandwidth to stream well. It honestly seems like a really good solution for my little site so I don’t have to rely on external services.
Oh, and another fun feature of PeerTube, it’s federated with ActivityPub. Got yourself a Mastodon account? Go ahead and follow @kuoushi_stream to get updates whenever streams go live or new archives get published. You can, of course, just follow @kuoushi for that as well, but now you’ve got another way to follow me. All sorts of options to follow the cool kuoushi.
And a quick note on streams? We’re going to likely finish up F.E.A.R.: Perseus Mandate next week and start a new game. What game will it be? Who knows. I certainly won’t post about it until I post about being done with F.E.A.R. because I suck at promoting myself. Maybe that’s normal.
That’s all for now, thanks as always.
