@pandion ah cool, thanks! Bookmarking it.
Cool. Hope it helps!
as others have mentioned you can join various instances via your mastodon account or via rss feed to receive notifications for new videos.
But the only way that i have found to resemble the youtube search function is this.
Also have you ever checked out lbry.tv?
@pandion not yet but to be honest I don't quite get wheri this is searching
@jeena do you want to know how to find content or do you want the help page to be improved?
If the latter, what's missing?
@guido I wanted to know how I can find content to watch so I went to the help page, it kind of sounded it would help me to understand how I can use PeerTube as a consumer, but it only had infos for content producers.
So to answer your question, I think both.
This is indeed somewhat cryptic.
The way I'd interpret it is: Follow as many accounts from as many different instances you can to make your instance aware of the others.
Unfollow the uninteresting stuff.
See how it went.
Peertube is pretty new. There is not that much content available yet.
Consider creating content.
Disclaimer: I am not an expert on this.. Just my interpretation
I use newpipe to find peertube videos. I Copy an instance's URL that federates with many and put it in newpipe(settings>content>peertubeInstances). I also try to find video creators and follow them using mastodon. So when they release new video i can find out.
I hope an easy way to find peertube becomes available soon.
