So I know you guys are into the crypto, but what do you think about lbry.tv
In short, its a decentralized alternative to Youtube and you get paid in crypto. It works surprisingly well considering it’s using the bit-torrent or something similar to host/stream videos. They have a feature that lets you automatically import videos from Youtube.
I just wanna hear your opinion on this platform. I am not associated with the people behind the project.
EposVox seems to be on there already. I found him by search you guys haha.
Lots of other big Youtubers have joined Odysee/Lbry.
Just a few you have probably heard about.
I mean crypto is only worth it if you have a way to cash it out easily, they also have the backup situation covered (YT/Floatplane/Their own solutions) Most of their content doesn’t age super well, some of it does tho. I am not seeing a compelling reason to do it other than its free.
Money aside I’d like to see big creators port their content there just to help build it up.
It’s not about right, left etc. It’s about why an apple hater can still like apple simply for keeping other vendors on their toes/innovative. About competition and checks and balances. Youtube has too much market space.
i’ve heard it’s super easy to link your YouTube account so that your YouTube uploads port right over to lbry. It wouldn’t even be a chore for them to have their content load there and bolster lbry’s offerings.
Lots of the channels I like are over there, like Great Scott and EEVBlog- tech channels that don’t have any political slant, just want to help platforms grow.
Yeah, a filter is a must. But then some people will abuse that and not mark their content as NSFW for more views. I think the best way is to just have a whitelist of content creators we want on our feed. Because community flagging can also be abused by people.
Also need to make sure that content creators are getting paid somehow otherwise most will not be making videos. Although for some people it’s just a hobby that they have. That’s why I like Odysee so much. However, it is still not clear how valuable their crypto-coin will be.
