[As a new user, I may only add two links. Therefore I’ve used “dot” for some links.]
Hi all. I’d like to ask some questions about PeerTube’s functionality. But let me start by congratulating you on the successful crowdfunding campaign! I’m happy that I can write I was one of the backers.
Our plan is to launch a PeerTube instance on freespeechtube dot org (and fstube dot org) late 2018 or early 2019, using your first stable release. This will be on a solid VPS that runs CentOS 7 and includes cPanel/WHM. I’ve toyed with PeerTube some month ago, then considered using Plumi or MediaDrop, briefly tried to set up CumulusClips (unsuccessfully; cumulusclips . org/forums/discussion/1986/session-start-causes-hang), and eventually circled back to PeerTube.
Nonprofit foundation “Stichting FreeSpeechTube” (sfstube dot nl) is providing the (financial, technical and legal) means to get/keep the instance up and running. Both our organization and video platform reside in the Netherlands.
In order to comply with various laws, including the European GDPR, a bunch of pages and certain functionality will have to be included on the PeerTube website. My first question is, which of the following does PeerTube already provide, either in part (e.g. templates) or fully?
- General disclaimer
- Cookie statement
- Video removal request form
- Content warning (or age-restriction pop-up)
My second question is about content management. While the “one-hour rule” is just a proposal, I want to make sure unlawful content is taken down quickly. Ideally, if a video has been uploaded, I’d like an email notification to go out to several people who then have the privilege to set videos to hidden for later review. Can the PeerTube CMS assign this status to videos: not deleted but inaccessible by regular users?
My final question is related to content. Free speech (videos) can be offensive (example). Given the domain name we’ll sooner or later be hosting some controversial content. Any suggestions on what we should take into account, any precautionary measures we could take?
