Think about instance but want to use Ads

Hi I love the idea of Peertube I have an idea for a channel but would like to use adverts to fund it

The Ads would be on the front end of the video that is chosen, is that possible?

I just wanted to find out if you can use Ads inside my instance before I put in a lot of work on this idea.

Thanks
Gerry

Hi,

I don’t think implementing ads is really what we want in PeerTube.

But you can still use the « support » description for creators on each videos with a link like utip ?

If you are in control of your instance, you can install a plugin to add such functionality. Otherwise, this is not a direction of PeerTube: https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/blob/develop/FAQ.md#are-you-going-to-support-advertisements

If you are in control of your instance, you can install a plugin to add such functionality.

But it will not work if the video is watched from another instance.

Even with the support action button ?

@JohnLivingston was answering my comment (in quotes) - the support button is a core feature, meant to be federated. It doesn’t allow anything other than text though.
