Does anyone know of a Peertube instance specialized in music, or at least where posting music wouldn't be out of place?
I'd like to mirror my YouTube channel on the Fediverse but I'm not sure where to go.
Recap of the relevant answers I got on this post:
https://videos.scanlines.xyz/ looks like a potential candidate, but maybe my videos are too much on the "audio" and not enough on the "video" side to fit.
https://share.tube/ has been suggested as a more generic instance, which looks well-moderated (an essential condition)
Someone is also pondering whether to launch an instance specifically for musicians, if that happens I think I will go there, so for now, wait and see.
@yaxu Interesting, though looks too specialized for just videos, yes.
@th4 On a similar note, is there any federated (or at least F/OSS) alternative to soundcloud and such services? Anyone using funkwhale here?
@esi @th4 I use funkwhale for audio. It isn't exactly like Soundcloud, but good to host 3 gigs of audio without the Soundcloud free user limit of 3 hours. As of ntworking features, such as in Soundcloud: I think it, that funkwhale isn't made for that. But @luka had an idea there before, cant find it back atm.
@esi @th4 Wait here it is, what luka recommendd to look at, in beta, though: https://mastodon.online/web/statuses/105322492207927713
@th4 Excellent idea. Would love to get rid of Youtube myself.
@jayrope Youtube is too influent to get rid of it completely for me, but it would be good at least to have my video performances hosted somewhere where it's not submitted to the whims of Google
@th4 Somewhere, where our videos aren't randomly framed by ads, that's why i want to get out of there. A few more frequented YT videos can serve as attraction points, guiding the interested visitor to an ad-free platform of one's own, with a visitor count, though.
A half-well running video is usually a good argument for a promoter to book a concert.
This one video got us to from Berlin to Canada before: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmdRVv-won4
You can adjust for your preferences, before you choose an instance. Some allow 100GB of uoloads, that should be fine for a while, no? Other considerations might be, in what context you place yourself. Upon a quick look i found a whole lot of instances with loads of conspiracy theorists and other dumbies. It might be good for art & music to stay away from those crack heads.
@jayrope I didn't think about looking on joinpeertube, but I'll do if the recommendations I get are not satisfactory.
I went the recommendations route first bc I also wanted to know if there were an instance where a community of musicians is already present (which also increases the odds that it's properly moderated, which is not a luxury as you rightly noted)
@th4 ooh, let me know what you find out!
@SkinnyFeels there are already a couple recommendations in the replies to this post, I'll post an update when I make my choice!
I used to used exode.me for music stuff. It appears to be closed for new members, however.
@silmathoron thanks, I'll check it out!
Welcome to post.lurk.org, an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
