#Peertube I am looking for an alternative for livestreaming video from a laptop to the Internet. I know I can do this with YT but can I do it with Peertube?

@Shelenn Ayres Sorry, but live streaming is not possible in peertube.

@Shelenn Ayres It has been a few months since I last looked but you should be able to do what I think you want with Nginx and the RTMP module. When I get a bit of time I will dig deeper and check to see exactly what is needed to pull it all together.

This would let you stream not only existing content, but also relay a live broadcast using something like OBS or one of the many other desktop choices. Things get a bit more complicated if you need authentication but still more than doable.

<edited to correct for RTMP module>

Hey @Troy Schultz as you may remember I am working on the virtual garden project to be livestreamed. Current plan is to install the client on a dedicated win10 laptop and stream it using the xbox app. (Alternatively, I wish there was a way to simply put a cam in the parcel scene then stream that cam but I don't know if anyone has done that - potentially something to develop for other projects.) For this project, the stream will only need to broadcast from 730 am to 730 pm eastern time. But it is important for it to be a live stream rather than a recording since the NPCs will randomly water, harvest, cook, etc. This combined with the plants of all types having a life span of 2-3 days will make the scene dynamic - this is intended. Visiting avatars may also appear in the scene anytime as well. There are items in the parcel that are for educational purposes so other avatar activity within the parcel is expected. I know I can setup a YT gaming channel and stream to that but I prefer to stream to a federated or open source solution if possible.

Researchers: Bitcoin's Carbon Footprint Equal To Las Vegas | AP

he virtual currency bitcoin is responsible for the same amount of carbon dioxide emissions as a city like Las Vegas or Hamburg and efforts to reduce its climate footprint should be considered, researchers said Thursday.

Where would I find someone to run a gofundme campaign on commission only or on a volunteer basis to raise monies for people in need of financial assistance?

From what I see, the average expert crowdfunding agency charges 1k-3.5k upfront plus 25-35% commission which is not affordable for people who find themselves in need due to circumstances beyond their control like cancer, debillitating disease, accident, layoff, business failures due to political tariffs, etc.

Any ideas? Let's crowdsource some knowledge folks! Possible crowdfund services might be gofundme or justgiving

I should say multiple campaigns since each case will be different. This could be an opportunity for commision only work for someone who works from home that would like to pay it forward yet still earn some income. The idea is to establish this as a service available to people who don't know how to run their own campaign, don't have the energy to do so, or have tried and failed.

You'd probably have to find someone willing to start such a foundation from scratch...

Existing structure exists for the business side of things. What is needed is a team of like-minded individuals who believe in the mission and are crowdfunding experts.

Theme Developers

Are there theme developers out there that want to create additional themes for Friendica?

It would be great to have some more crowdpower on that topic. If you are interested, just visit

This is the house that Trump built... false reports of a man with a gun created a panic leading to senseless and inhuman injuries. #StopTheViolence

Sad for a life to end this young - Hillary's younger brother passed on at age 65.

$18,000? How very small-minded, petty, and frankly stupid, of this woman. Hardly worth the risk. Then again, to have been a state official and refer to FLOTUS as an "ape in heels" already shows how small-minded, churlish and dull-witted she was.


It never seems to end since Trump attracts criminals like a magnet. I think we've barely scratched the surface.

Nader has been informing keeping himself out of prison for years - mob ties if I remember correctly but in the case of Trump, foreign government backchannels etc are involved. Looks like he left the country then came back thinking he was in the clear LOL

Yeah, I've commented for years that these GOP people seem stunningly self-confident and cocky. That's never a good idea because it almost always backfires.

There is a reason why they are far-right in the first place. Mental deficiencies of various kinds.

Both interesting and concerning to see the advancement of technology and techniques that can provide greater accessibility yet also fake lip sync that is so difficult to detect as fake.

OMFG! That's such a good #deepfake ... i love it!

Canny AI: Imagine world leaders singing

It's not a comprehensive idea but the videos used have the same main color profile because only the lips are adjusted. A search could match to the original content. Simply cropping might thwart that though. I guess extensive watermarking signatures for peoples original content might do the trick.

BTW: Just saw this piece (surprisingly from an eBank) about the #Deepfakes problems and half-way down the article they discuss two active measures currently combatting the problems.
