I think that last one is the only solution. We don't have fiber optic here yet, and until we do my bandwidth won't be getting any better.
Unfortunately, this is a rather high-commitment activity, in terms of time and learning new software. It's a whole lot to ask of a volunteer.
@GuerillaOntologist I'd be willing to be the host if you can help me figure out the set up. In which case, I'd like to do it with BBB and peertube if possible (but maybe vimeo?).
@Matt_Noyes I've had nothing but headaches with Peertube, tbh. Have you had good experiences with it? I can never get a video to play for more than 30 seconds or so before I get endless buffering.
We could do Vimeo, but we'd need an account first.
I get not wanting to support google but I also feel that if I'm going to put a bunch of work into something I would like it to be on a platform that people actually use, you know? And regardless, I'll be uploading anything we record to yt anyway.
@GuerillaOntologist No problem. I have no experience with peertube, just a vague desire to see a successful alternative to YT. Which is not enough.
On the other hand, if you are going to put a bunch of work into something anyway, might as well put it in the direction we want to go? I don't think people care if the video they want is on YT or PT or anywhere else, as long as they have the link and it works.
I read they now support RTMPS in the last version. Apparently the Degrowth Conference did do (some?) Live Streaming from meet.coop to PT, but I need to check on that, the PT results.
@Matt_Noyes @GuerillaOntologist We have set this up for three members so far: 1) City of Amsterdam, with their Cities for Change conf programme this spring. See here a video tutorial for session hosts their case, incl streaming: https://citiesforchange.org/pages/session-host-tutorial-meetcoop
