I'm pretty excited for the upcoming release of Owncast, an open-source video streaming solution (think self-hosted Twitch)!

@gabek is testing the latest version in preparation for the next release, streaming some tunes on his Owncast instance at goth.land/ right now!

Drop by and say hello in the chat, if you want to see Owncast in action!

Just watched a pretty impressive demo of a platform (nothing to do with ownCloud), already shipping with working chat.

It isn't , but takes an stream (hello, ) and shares it on a rather nice looking webpage, from what I can tell. Early days yet, but already working surprisingly well!

If is more like, then this is more like .

Seems to be developed by @fribbledom among others.

@Blort @fribbledom Sweet! Wonder how it compares to OSP [which we use, our partner runs a server].

@Blort @fribbledom makes sense to not be P2P, any P2P implementation necessitates a delay to be able to spread data across peers, which is often an issue for chat interaction

For reference, the solution my employer uses for the large internal webcasts has a delay of 20 seconds after the live feed, so peers can download random chunks instead of sequential ones, as downloading sequentially would significantly limit the benefits of P2P

@Blort

you could even combine the two since PeerTube hasn't implemented streaming yet and Owncast (as far as i understand) isn't designed to host static videos ->
stream with Owncast, record with OBS and then archive the video on PeerTube
