We need youtube alternatives now. Harmful Opinions video was quite elucidating without being reactionary. I loved how he didn't give that much of a shit about the monetization, but saw the true danger of youtube hiring unpaid labor to report "negative" conent.

Youtube needs a free speech alternative.

I knew Jesus was real! I just never thought he would contact me over the internet, on a shitty message board hosted in Columbia, and with that username...

Got truly does work in mysterious ways.

So an alternative to YouTube is a site which embeds YouTube videos? What?

I'm working on it. I can't shitpost and code at the same time, though. I'm currently working on a comment system that will easily crush youtube comments. Easy.

https://gvid.pw for anyone interested. It allows the posting of anything that is not illegal. It operates on the concept that all content is created equal. It needs more content too if anyone wants to upload to it while I'm stuck coding.

YouTube operates at a loss and has for years. Think about that for one moment. Why are they operating at a loss? Because they want to capture the market. They want to capture the market so that they have control. What is the YouTube market? FREE SPEECH. YouTube is a social engineering site which is being funded at a loss so as to exert control. When it is free, you are the product.

The only way to fight this sort of power is to fracture it,which is to say to build up competitive alternatives. We need to help fund these alternatives. And then they turn sour, we need to move on to greener pastures. Digg died, Reddit followed. Reddit became horrible, VOAT followed. When VOAT goes, we'll need to hop to another lillypad.

They want us to herd. We need to make it a game of wack-a-mole.

Huh. Official Vidme channel, accurately breaks down the problems with YouTube Heroes, and yet it still made me laugh.

I have to say that just this one video has made me have a lot more respect for the people at Vidme than I ever had for the idiots at YouTube.

This is how those hiding in the shadows get around laws forbidding the government from censoring ideas, you get companies to do it since the first amendment is only for protecting against government censorship. Fuck that.

I have a question. Gonna be TL;DR guaranteed, @ Tech theorist, Inclusion Inclined, Code Savvy, 3 digit IQ having goats, a few questions, and please, ELI5. Enlighten me.

From the current build of the Voat.co platform, wtitten as is. With its user base. What are the factors inhibiting a video sharing "yt'esque" functionality from being integrated as a stand alone complex? Is the current (lacking tech word) thing like a Legos creation that we can just piggyback as a foundation? Does the architecture now add any prefab crevasses and footholds to this or a similar idea? Or not at all?

Summary,

A.....Can Voat.co's base code ( as is) support a video sharing community similar to "that" site?

B.....What if any are the main factors inhibiting this idea from a solid fruition?

C.....Is there any advantage to using the pre existing (code architecture) whatsoever?

D..... Realizing the activity of current users as an obvious initial benefit, and omitting it's value momentarily. Are there any draw backs to this type of undertaking should @atko and @puttitout green light a beta version?

Thanks,

Inquisitive goat, convinced the cucks at the helm of these pc indoctrination sites might be as dumb as they seem. They certainly pay no heed to history lessons. Ie Reddit. They operate emersed in such hubris, not only are they going to dictate nonsensical social paradigms liberally to the user base, they brazenly assume said users will always be there. Ie to stupid to walk away? The blood of their sites, the users smuggly looked down apon with a "better than thee" contempt. Hmmm, yuuupp, I see some flaws in that jewel, mainly it's composition of glass.

Look to yelp and now soon twitter for prime examples of promising ships run aground by...people you sell muffler bearings to cuz you saw them try to kick a stray cat, or The guy who falls for this https://youtu.be/IA0nFSkMoxs, Or the ones boasting that they are playing 3 level chess, then you ask why there are checkers only to realize they are playing connect 4. Or more directly, where I come from....mooks
