    I mean, since we’re all here, PeerTube is federated with Lemmy! There are limited numbers of creators on PeerTube right now, but maybe if we can link more videos from there on lemmy and upload some ourselves, we can get the platform into a healthy state. Not that there is nothing there, there is a decent amount uploaded already.

      PeerTube won’t take off unlike Lemmy did and still does. People won’t switch from YouTube to PeerTube because the creators they watch aren’t there. Also the YouTube Algorithm is what people make use YouTube in the first place.

      Reddit isn’t creator based and doesn’t necessarily need an Algorithm since the users choose what to see anyways. So the Lemmy experience isn’t actually that mich worse than the reddit experience

        Creators also need to make money. I doubt Peertube has ad revenue to split with them.

        In fairness to YouTube, creators do keep about half the money (in exchange for YouTube hosting the content).

          I don’t think that’s thaat much of a deal. Most youtubers also need additional revenue streams like patreon and mearch and sponsorships.

        It’s a really good point. It’s both the algo and the creators the keep us there.

          Discoverability is something youtube’s alogrithm really gets right, and something lemmy, or the fediverse in general, just sucks at right now.

        YT algo is hot garbage, I always have to check the channels of the creators I follow manually. I donate through Patreon and I would be happy to bump up my donations to make it easier for them to move to PeerTube
