From Wikipedia:PeerTube:

PeerTube is a free and open-source, decentralized, federated video platform powered by ActivityPub and WebTorrent, that uses peer-to-peer technology to reduce load on individual servers when viewing videos.

Installation

Install the peertubeAUR package.

Setup

Follow the configuration steps of the production guide:

  1. Create a database and user with a password in PostgreSQL, following the instructions on the GitHub link.
  2. Edit the first section of the /etc/peertube/production.yaml. Make sure you change the database password to match the one you set earlier.
  3. Enable and start the Redis service
  4. If you want to edit the settings through the web UI, you must change the ownership of the config folder
    # chown -R peertube:peertube /etc/peertube
  5. (Optional) Configure and start a reverse proxy. PeerTube has official support for nginx, and the configuration file can be found at /usr/share/webapps/peertube/support/nginx/peertube. Make sure you change the file paths to the ones used by this package!
  6. (Optional) If you are having trouble with getting the package to work, run
    # chown -R peertube:peertube /var/lib/peertube/
    to fix possible permissions problems.

Finally, start the peertube service and point your browser to the URL from the configuration file (http://localhost:9000 by default without a reverse proxy).

Note: Once an address has been set in the configuration file, e.g. peertube.example.com, users can only login from that address, and not from other locations, such as localhost:9000.
