Che cos'è PeerTube?

PeerTube allows you to create your own video platform, in complete independence.

With PeerTube, no more opaque algorithms or obscure moderation policies! PeerTube platforms you visit are built, managed and moderated by their owners.

PeerTube allows platforms to be connected to each other, creating a big network of platforms that are both autonomous and interconnected.

Moreover, PeerTube does not depend on any advertising and does not track you!

PeerTube is not subject to the monopoly of any company

Like the other tools developed by Framasoft, PeerTube considers you as a person and not as a product to be profiled and locked in video loops.

PeerTube is free, open-source, created for non-commercial purposes.

An ethical and open source digital common

PeerTube belongs to you. At any time, you can help us to improve PeerTube with your ideas, suggestion or by modifying the source code yourself.

PeerTube is a free software, not a secret formula that belongs to Google (in the case of Youtube) or to Vivendi/Bolloré (Dailymotion). This free/libre license guarantees our fundamental freedoms as users.

Questions? We guide you!

PeerTube is a tool that you install on a web server. It allows you to create a video hosting website, so create your "homemade YouTube".

La differenza con YouTube è che non ha lo scopo di creare un'enorme piattaforma centralizzando i video di tutto il mondo su una singola server farm (che è terribilmente costosa).

Al contrario, il concetto di PeerTube è quello di creare una rete di più piccoli provider di video hosting interconnessi.

Possiamo rispondere con un: certamente no!

The ambition remains to be a free and decentralized alternative: the goal of an alternative is not to replace, but to propose something else, with different values, in parallel to what already exists.

PeerTube è unico perché (per quanto ne sappiamo) è l'unica applicazione web di hosting di video che combina tre vantaggi:

An open code under a free/libre license

  • PeerTube è fornito gratuitamente, non è necessario pagare per installarlo sul tuo server;
  • Possiamo guardare sotto il cofano di PeerTube (il suo codice sorgente): è verificabile, trasparente;
  • It can be enhanced by everyone's contributions.

A federation of interconnected hosting providers

  • It decentralizes video storage and decision-making power;
  • We can display videos and accounts of other PeerTube websites;
  • It's based on ActivityPub to connect with tools like Mastodon for example.

Peer-to-peer broadcasting

  • It reduces server bandwidth overload if a video becomes viral;
  • We become an actor of the video broadcasting;
  • It's based on WebRTC, a free and open-source project for web browsers.
