@poncho524 - A redesign of the UI and tags are right around the corner, next update or so. That'll improve things a lot I think.

@stragu - It was pretty horrible and one of the reasons I dropped YouTube, and Google overall.

First they wouldn't do anything about it basically forcing me to spend my own time and energy on a defence against the constant slander, and then they suspended my whole channel for defending myself against this person.

At the very least, on LBRY everyone plays by the same rules, for better and for worse.

@stragu - I've no idea what Gavin McInnes is about to be honest. His content looked boring to me so I didn't click it.

I mean, on YouTube a big channel can target a smaller channel and there's nothing the smaller channel can do about it, YT doesn't care unless it gets media attention.

I literally got my channel suspended when defending myself against a raging narcissist who targeted my girlfriend and I.

All I did was to show everyone what he was doing to us and others on the platform.

@stragu - What I see is people moving there for other reasons, including myself, I even made a video to illustrate some of the reasons: open.lbry.com/@MH#5bd299a92e7b

@gbryant @piejacker875 - Ah, okay. Nah, I wouldn't know much about how alt-right people refer to things.

@gbryant - It sure isn't about us anymore, hence . Seriously! πŸ™ƒ

@piejacker875 @gbryant - They want to reach the mainstream, so they're using mainstream services to bring the mainstream over to their open, community-run and decentralized network of content goodness.

No need to judge them so harshly. It's great to be clean and pure yourself, but sometimes you have step into the mud to pull out others who are stuck in it :)

@poncho524 - I just think has more potential to become the new so to speak.

For one, I think the LBRY network would be able to handle a mass migration from YouTube, something I think PeerTube would struggle with.

LBRY also has monetization features baked in and has better search/discovery of content. It has lossless quality distribution, is not restricted to videos only and it's easier to self-host your content on there.

I used to always wear a , but when I started carrying a phone around I didn't really need the watch anymore so I dropped it.

Now that I use my phone less and less, and go out without it more often than not, I'm thinking about getting a watch again.

Does the have any recommendations?

I'm thinking an old school (no 'smart' features!) and really high quality one. Something that can possibly last me for the rest of my life. I don't mind if I have to save up for it for a while ⌚

My video, Why I Quit , is currently #1 trending on ! So far I've been tipped almost $100 worth of LBC (LBRY Credits), not bad for the first video on my channel!

Why people on here seem to be so opposed to , I don't know. LBRY has a really good use case for it IMO.

Not that I made this video to make money, but I'll gladly take $100 for it, opposed to $0 πŸ™ƒ

It took a really long time to put together after all!

@d00br - It has been working fine for me on Pop!_OS 18.10 and 19.04. It's pretty stable too. I guess I kinda just lucked out with my hardware as it's pretty picky about it.

There are a couple of things I have to do for it to work though. I wish they added more support for other distros. It'd be nice if they made it open source too, but I doubt that's going to happen anytime soon.

@patricepoly - I use DaVinci Resolve personally. It's far more intuitive and feature rich. If it was open source it'd be perfect!

My gf switched from to so I suggested to her for video editing as that seems to be what everyone recommends. She hated it! πŸ˜‚

I tried to help her out, but I too found it unnecessary difficult to use. Like nothing does what you expect it to, quite frustrating!

Anyway, I found and we both liked it way better. It may not be recommended as much because it's quite new, but I suggest we do because it works more similarly to other common video editors.

@ChrisTalleras - I don't have the technological know-how to run my own instance . I'm okay to trust someone else for my toots as they're not that important to me, but for my music/videos I prefer to be in full control myself.

LBRY is a better option for me, unless LBRY Inc has the power to remove my content (that'd be no different than putting my content on someone else's PeerTube instance really).

My understanding is that LBRY Inc can't do this, please enlighten me if that's not the case :)

@ChrisTalleras - Again, I hear what you say, I'm just asking if you can explain it further.

LBRY Inc wants to remove my content, how would they do it?

As someone who was banned from YouTube and had all my content removed, I don't want to put myself in a position where that can happen again. I genuinely want to know how LBRY Inc would be able to remove my content if that was something they wanted to do.
