Finally, some non-YouTube content

Hi Jason, great to see you supporting LBRY as open source alternative to YouTube! It would be great if you could convince (or at least try to…) your DLN colleagues Ryan, Michael, Noah and Zeb to do the same.
I would love to be able to find all DLN content on LBRY and not have to go to YouTube to watch my preferred channels. Thanks for making such great and interesting content and please keep going! Greetings from Switzerland :switzerland:

@Zwygi49 @Mr_McBride TuxDigital, DL, and DasGeek have non YouTube options. TuxDigital and DL are on BitChute and DasGeek is on Peertube. LBRY could be an option perhaps though

Good to know, thanks.

Four shows, three different non-YouTube alternatives. It would be good to have DLN shows available in one alternative location. I would love to not use YouTube, but that seems impossible.

I’m curious to know if people are aware of Invidious. I hadn’t heard of it until yesterday. It is an alternative front end to YouTube. I’m not suggesting it is a complete replacement for something like LBRY but it at least offers a way to view YT content without using YT itself.

Any idea how it knows what I’m subscribed to without my being logged in? I’m pretty sure Luke Smith doesn’t make it to the front page of YT very often.

You got your wish :slight_smile:

Jason is totally right @Zwygi49 :smiley:

Most, if not all, of DLN is on LBRY now. :smiley:

@JasonEvangelho I am working on making a LBRY page on DLN website as well. :smiley:

For some reason LBRY is slow to load videos for me.
Like, the Android app takes like 30 seconds to load 10 seconds of video, just to stop after the 10 seconds and do another 30 seconds of loading.

The website is a bit better, but it buffers often on the videos I have tested.

The technology used is blockchain, which has been done a few times before (like https://d.tube).
And I’m pretty sure I was having the same issues there. So it’s likely a blockchain/webtorrent issue in general, but I don’t have the issue on Peertube, which also uses torrent technology, just not blockchain.
(buzzword bingo there)

@MichaelTunnell @JasonEvangelho Thanks! I already started to watch all my preferred content on LBRY.
