With the stream "issues" that Revision had this week-end, we again talked of stream alternatives to Twitch/YT. I mean alternatives that works more or less out of the box. So far we found none.

I don't think Peertube is the answer for 20+ viewers streams. You can't control your streaming infrastructure with Peertube.
You may be able to stream to 2000 people or to 50, you just don't have any control over that.


That's sad because I think there's a huge empty room here for a FOSS project that could provide a streaming infrastructure with or without cloud automated deployment/scaling, and integrated chat.

@fenarinarsa live support is still quite new in #PeerTubeā€¦ What's about scaling that you can't control?

@mmu_man If I understood well you have your onw instance that can stream, helped with other instances, and maybe clients that do P2P between them?
I don't call that "having control" over the infrastructure.
There's too many unknown things that could go wrong.

@fenarinarsa AFAIK other instances don't act as servers too, the federation is only to index their videos on our instance.

@fenarinarsa And I think all the base tools and techs are here and proof that it works. It's just yet, there is no FOSS solution that package everything as a "twitch like".

@totetmatt Indeed, you can put your own stream solution and deploy proxies manually. It's possible.
However it looks like homemade streaming
