The very first video I clicked on to learn about PeerTube buffered after 2 seconds and never continued.
While I applaud the concept of PeerTube, it will never succeed as designed.
PeerTube is growing up in a world where buffering is unacceptable. The second your video buffers, you have lost a viewer.
The only solution is the solution is to place the videos on caching servers closer to the person watching the video.
This reality sucks for a small startup but it is a harsh reality.
That’s why video sites can’t succeed with CIA funding. It costs a fortune to create thousands of caching video servers and pay for the networking to push out videos to them.
