I am ready to install PeerTube on a new DigitalOcean VPS Basic Droplet.
After reading as much as I could, I am going with the $15.00 a month:
60GB (SSD disk)
Here is my question: Should I create another Basic Droplet ($5 monthly) to transcode the uploads separately?
You cannot transcode uploads on a different machine (for now at least), so no.
Thank you for this.
One more question: DigitalOcean has a scalable object storage solution called Spaces. Does PeerTube offer some way to take advantage of this? Here is their promo page about it:
Yes, since it claims to be s3-compatible, please refer to https://docs.joinpeertube.org/#/admin-remote-storage
Awesome. Thank you for this!
