Jupiter Broadcasting Takes PeerTube Instance Offline ➝

Chris Fisher:

The software itself handles even demanding workloads great, stability has been surprisingly good. Even when we tried to really push the new live stream support.

Where things start to fall down for Jupiter Broadcasting is operating at scale, on an ongoing basis. Four or more shows a week, multiple team members, and live streams.

PeerTube is a neat piece of software, but video is tricky. It uses a lot of storage space and bandwidth. It also has a much higher barrier to entry in terms of production.

I toyed with PeerTube for a few months but ultimately took my instance offline because I wasn’t using it for publishing and didn’t find a lot of channels that were worth following. The channels I did find, I just subscribed to in Pocket Casts.
