The importance of vid quality controls
I often use YouTube/invidious over odysee or peertube due to my devices lagging either due to the device being low spec or internet connection or something else. A bunch of Odyssey and peertube videos are only available at 720p or 1080p. I'm consistently told I don't need a gaming computer and 100 Mbps to play 1080p videos without lag, but 1080p videos have been a problem across every device I've ever owned in my life, and the best device I've owned was a pixel 6, and on 75 Mbps connection. Inb4 I'm told this is my problem I should just deal. So videos of being automatically scaled down to 360p or 480p would help a lot with adoption.

I've been thinking a bit about the new analytics feature in Peertube, I'm curious what you guys think of the new features.

Are there any Marxist-Leninist instances?
I can't seem to find any ML PeerTube instances. If there is no ML PeerTube instance, then that could be a potential Lemmygrad project. [Also someone made a good point about giving tons of initial storage space.](https://lemmygrad.ml/post/222727/comment/173371)

How do I go about making videos?
So basically I'm sat here with a server that has been running for almost a month. an html website, pleroma, and peertube. basically everything I need for content creation, but I haven't done nothing, not a post (that has any value). I don't really know how to make videos, I kinda have some ideas, I have like a script writing software that I'm in the middle of figuring out.. but.. I have no idea how this thing really works. I have a set of interests already established so that's that. how does someone start out as a video content creator?

Does peertube need an algorithm?
If it were up to my opinion. the short answer is yes. if the topics/genres that I were interested in, i.e. I searched for, I clicked, gets recommended more. For a privacy perspective it might be a bad thing depending how it was implemented, it's quite unlikely that the algorithm is is done externally, or locally on a users machine, it would likely be from the server and stored there too. unless we have something like a peertube client that could sync the preference data between devices. either that, or we'll have to encrypt it. if we so care much about privacy. but decentralization definitely helps. Now on the topic of addiction is a whole another discussion, it may vary for user to user. I'm not an expert in this but for me I can control what I want to do fairly well. I tend to scroll through the recommendations at leisure, when I want to look for useful information like guides, tutorials, advice on a skill i'd use the search bar, categories, or try sift through the recommendations. *a while ago I was mindlessly scrolling and quickly made aware of it, I despised the feeling and avoided doing the same thing. other might be still stuck in a loop. i'm... not sure.* the recommendations from algorithm are the ones that had "gems" aka information that would helped me tremendously that I wasn't specifically looking for and higher quality videos. It's like a double edged sword, depending on the user's intent, or.. control of their intent. that is definitely a problem to some people, so we should give them an option to make it more adhd friendly. --- I'd like to say in defense of algorithms if it were something I knew what it was doing. I'd be in favour of. it's more of a discoverability function, like what's poppin on peertube y'know? I haven't found anything good for a while, it's very rare and like mostly found on accident or via youtube. maybe it's just that we haven't seen any massive adoption here, but I don't really know, what do you think?
