If you want to show #PeerTube to friends but you're worried about NSFW videos appearing on the front page, you could try showing them this instance:
A couple of other safe interesting instances too:
VidCommons: a collection of creative commons and public domain films
Blender: the official PeerTube instance for the Blender foundation, including their films
@switchingsocial sounds interesting. Do they have any apps for mobile yet?
For Android, yes.
-Fedilab ( @tom79 ) which also works with Mastodon, Friendica and Pleroma accounts.
Both of these are in Google Play and F-Droid.
There's a third app under development called P2Play ( @p2play ).
More about PeerTube here:
Not as far as I know.
@switchingsocial ah OK that sucks. Thanks for the info!
@switchingsocial peertube.social seems to have mostly french language content judging from the start page?
The start page shows content from a variety of instances (you can see the source instance mentioned under the video's title).
There's a lot of French content on PeerTube, because the project began in France.
It's a project backed by @Framasoft , the main French libre software organisation. The lead developer is also French.
why would you need manual curation? language detection is possible using a software such as
(floss, no cloud service)
i mean one could curated lists anyway to sort by topic and quality, but tastes vary (see youtube's front page when using a new browser)
@zalandocalrissian @switchingsocial The reason I suggested manual curation is because out of the 4 or 5 peertube instances I've visited most of them seem to suffer from same problem: The 'landing pages'(first impression for new users) seem to be a lot of random stuff with very little 'rhyme or reason' or obvious descriptions of content or quality. I suspect a lot of people would be put off by such a first impression and not be inspired to stick around.

Yeah curated lists over algorithm or other methods could be really usefull since there would be some quality check (depending on the curator) and you'd find some videos might never been suggested by a programmatic approach
@zalandocalrissian @switchingsocial I think unfortunately when internet users who are used to everything being served up to them on a plate by sites such as youtube encounter sites such as peertube for the first time they are not aware of the ideology but simply care about a 'quick hit'. I do not know what the correct term is but perhaps it is similar to the 'elevator pitch' where there is a short time to grab people before they are gone, possibly for ever.
@switchingsocial I would like to start a PeerTube instance like that.
Isn't peertube.social a one-sided politics oriented Instance? I don't think it would be nice for newcomers
Looking at the content, it seems to be mostly from other instances? (I'm not 100% sure what the French videos are though, as I don't speak it well.)
Any safe-for-work instance suggestions are very welcome. If you know any alternatives you feel are better, please reply in this thread.
I personally like peertube.mastodon.host, share.tube and peertube.linuxrocks.online
Linuxrocks looks good, cheers 👍
Mastodon.host and Share.tube have NSFW content on the front page
oh, I can't see them then
I don't want to link to them, but if you scroll down the front pages until you see fuzzed-out videos, those are NSFW.
The thing is, instance amin choose how their instance handle NSFW content (show, blur, don't show) and then, user choose too in there account.
So yes, be careful which instance you want to promote.
A good thing to do is also put your suggestion for improvement in github. We need user POV to make it better.
And you need to explain that it doesn't use algorithm like YouTube to force video, so people who discover need to be aware of that.
mastodon.at is a microblogging site that federates with most instances on the Fediverse.
