  • [ – ] BruceShepard1970 reply Welcome to Vidme. No more YouTube oppression and demonitization. :D
    • GoMGTOW parent reply VIDME IS DELETING VIDEOS AND ACCOUNTS THAT THE DEEM POLITICALLY INCORRECT. VIDME DOES NOT SUPPORT FREE SPEECH OR FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION... EVERTHING THEY SAID ABOUT SUPPORTING CREATORS IS A LIE!
    • Gh_Hg parent reply Glad to be here! Praise Kek
  • [ – ] tmnsoon reply Hey Dave, please consider making your content available in podcast form like Stefan does -- it's much more convenient for a lot of people to be able to listen while driving, commuting, exercising or doing housework as opposed to sitting down and watching a video. Thanks!
    • [ – ] MikeTheMugger parent reply I second this! And also, I usually make it a point to put my own podcast in audio-only format on soundcloud too! It helps both you and viewers/listeners. Less data usage, means more people listening to your content on mobile devices.
      • [ – ] tmnsoon parent reply Yeah, a Soundcloud version of all the videos would be great. We can listen with the Soundcloud app on our phones. Watching videos over 4G uses too much data.
  • MysticSword reply Big Brother is more and more present. Nice video. Well thought-out and well spoken.
  • Grumanilt reply "Meanwhile, France falls into the darkness..."
  • [ – ] ComputingForever reply Thanks for all the fantastic engagement here on Vidme. Hugely appreciated guys.
  • [ – ] JimGiant reply We need free speech supporting sites to grow to a point where they can actually have an impact. Having them exist on the fringes of the internet where journalists and governments can pretend inconvenient facts don't exist isn't good enough.
  • [ – ] madel_schmadel reply I'm not a computer nerd, but maybe something like the Open Sim model would work so that when a user's offline, offline messages could still reach them. Pick a few nodes in the network as ones that keep track of users, have some for assets like multimedia, and some for text.
  • ForNoGoodReason reply Don't use vid me enough, but thanks for your time on minds and other mediums
  • The_Lamb reply It would be a good idea if we could hack each Countries own servers and run encryption through their own 'backdoor'. GCHQ in the UK and the Pentagon in the USA and so on. Piss ant requests from these outfit to prevent 'uncrackable' encryption makes me laugh. Brains over brawn will win the day on this one, it has to! Cheers.
  • DragonSkunk reply This is poorly thought out and full of problems: p2p connections can be specifically throttled. Ad funded content would never make money. We already tried p2p sharing it was called eg: Kazaa, Emule, etc. where viruses and child porn was rampant, it wasn't very attractive. I didn't hear any applicable solutions to get rid of hate speech. I don't want in my pocket someone's else porn especially if I travel though customs.
  • TacticCrush reply Outer Haven (gravelly voice)
  • nyadchild reply fuck censorship
  • Tiedshoes7 reply This is great!!!!!!
  • blazedu reply the physical storage is always a problem. And you're right, they will start chasing the users directly. Just like turkey, they will not stop on the scaling of censorship
  • [ – ] Mygamebeff reply Vid.me is not the platform we deserve but the platform we need
  • NoCopyrightJamz reply Feel free to use our awesome no copyright music! <3
  • JamesFuturist reply In the U.S. its not the government doing the censorship. Its corporations. Its Facebook and Google. Its leftist fanatics at the head of these tech companies.
  • SpokenThoughts reply Hey, @ComputingForever I agree with practically 98% with what you said. However, I wouldn't completely fault the left, the right can be just as regressive as the left in terms of free speech. Look up "Falwell censored anti-Trump column". Also, there is a battle against the deep state on both ends. Leftist alternative sources (H.A Goodman, Tim Black, Secular Talk, Jimmy Dore etc.) have been demonetized for essentially reporting the truth (basically calling out mainstream media's bs). Also, just a suggestion invite guys like Tim Black or H.A Goodman. Tim Black has made videos calling out SJW's and free speech. H.A Goodman has also made videos consistently calling out msm's B.S. P.S. Check this video out at the bottom. You'll like it. https://youtu.be/IG_jYRuGQSc
  • AtomicDog602 reply Just like cryptocurrency. Decentralized storage of the transaction data has been working (but is not entirely anonymous). I am sure the theory can be thinned out so people only have a small chunk of the overall data. My one concern is a government could possibly trace the IP addresses and accuse a user of spreading hate speech, violence, or whatever is contained in the data you are sharing. Don't think a government wouldn't try to shut it down... Heck the IRS has used block chain analysis to track down some big bitcoin exchanges for hard currency, suing web wallet companies for their user and account database(including logged IP). The realization is there really is little privacy on the internet
  • [ – ] kickytink reply Man, the streaming here sucks nuts~!
  • jsullivan reply The red pilling continues. Thanks for succinctly expressing technological concerns.
  • JaitheRai reply It's definitely an interesting idea, but it would be kind of tough to set something like that up or have it run correctly all the time. I do think that some restrictions are ok on the internet... but not all. Great video though!
  • crua9 reply This is a pretty good video. I didn't know groups were banning on the hosting level. BTW your P2P solution won't work. If enough SJW devices get on the system, they can modify the data or block it. Then your over arching solution won't work. The SJW group can DDOS the main servers which forces the P2P, and then modify any data on the P2P. This P2P thing was actually a real issue back in the day with pirating. The only actual solution was to put it on hosting servers. And yes there is ways to stop someone from messing with the data mid stream. You can use a hashing system, but this only works after during the download. But there isn't much out there that can really protect the data before the data is requested to be downloaded in the first place.
  • themillennialrevolt reply Great video David !!!
  • JackDinn reply Nice vid, yes iv been occasionally looking at how thing are progressing with such things as bitmessage & openbazzar etc Im sure there will be a multitude of decentralized blockchain pgp type systems springing up all over the place very soon. Its all simple supply and demand stuff , if the gov had not started using 1984 as a blue-print instead of a warning these things may never have been required but needs must :). Keep up the great work and the long-fight.
  • I3UTM reply What about becoming an "e-Citizen" in Estonia, setting up the centralized server there from an "E-company" and the seed from the company? The company is tied to a citizen that does not even reside in that country. Hence, the decentralization of being tied to one "person" or "country."
  • Waces_Ferpit reply Go full Watch_Dogs
  • blindfire reply Nice introduction animation. I like the bit torrent like server option. It needs to be ironed out though. Maybe it would work out better if you could slice up the core content of the site into smaller segments and distribute it among all users, then have the uploaded content be rolled in and out of circulation, like 4chan, and give people the option to archive things on their own if they so choose.
  • GAPEorDIE reply how are you going to make a video about an uncensorable platform and not have a BTC wallet address
  • GoMGTOW reply VIDME IS DELETING VIDEOS AND ACCOUNTS THAT THE DEEM POLITICALLY INCORRECT. VIDME DOES NOT SUPPORT FREE SPEECH OR FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION... EVERTHING THEY SAID ABOUT SUPPORTING CREATORS IS A LIE!
  • mr_moneyswe reply Awesome video man! And such important topic today also with everything that's happening around the world. Keep up the good work!
  • Christian_Ice reply It's a nice idea but it has a big technical problem. The very existence of any peer2peer data storage is based on its continuity, so it can hardly work as a backup. In other words, to create that backup you would have to have turned on all the time anyway.
  • c_arnold03 reply Ah, IFPS. Finally.
  • ITSnippets reply I've using Minds.com too, but there no API integration with any other sites just now which means extra steps to share content. I do agree that we need to move to a hybrid platform. I'm also using bitchute and released my back catalogue on vidme :)
  • gazhere reply Just want to point out to everyone that the corporations supported by our governments and pushed by the media are not leftist, they may appear liberal but the champions of capitalism are incredibly right wing because they are motivated by money and greed. In defending freedom of speech and boycotting censorship you are on the side of the left. If you are tired of racism, sexism, classism, elitism that stems from old ideologies, age old dated religions and maintained through right-wing media propaganda that YouTube is becoming then whether you like it or not you are liberal minded. The shit that happened to PewdiePie was exacerbated by the Wall Street Journal who is owned by Rupert Murdoch (a republican known for supporting every elected politician in the UK and US through -his newspapers; WSJ, The Sun, The Times, -and his news networks; Fox News via 20th Century Fox and Sky News via Sky). Murdoch faces police and government investigations into bribery and corruption by the British gove...morernment and FBI investigations in the US but because he has so much control over public opinion and has monopolised the news networks for the most part, it's left us with very few reputable and trusted sources of information. If we don't work together he will continue to own this world and our future generations through his family tree once he dies. Dave, please educate yourself about these implications of why censorship favours some but shits on others before you influence a load of your audience to shit on the left that ultimately you are part of.
  • The_World_of_RipX reply Thank you for becoming a part of the voice here. Keep fighting!
  • Blindedjourneyman reply Thx for the interesting info. Decided to grab vidme n minds too much info gateways I like r leaving so... no choice :D
  • trav_v3 reply AUSTRALIA IS INFECTED BY THE FAR LEFT. DISARMED, 18C, NANNY STATE.
  • temporaryinternetuser reply a Freenet webservice is decentralized if I am not mistaken
  • trav_v3 reply Leftism is true cancer. I do not say this lightly, and I did not come to this conclusion without logic. Forever fuck the left, fuck the nanny state. I am for the right to defend ones self, and and free speech. Get rid of stupid nanny state legislation.
  • Vermithrax reply Are you just describing GNUsocial?
  • EHXKOR reply See all this censorship everywhere is actually quite scary. This isn't the world that I want to live in, not being able to speak your mind fully.
  • [ – ] TheScreaminGoat reply So could I get a quick run down what minds is? I'm quite curious about it.
  • LaLaLara reply It's not just the far left; the far right holds tight to some of the same knee-jerk reactionary idiocy you're claiming belongs to just one side of the market. Indeed, it's often been said that, if you go far enough to the left, you're shaking hands with the left (and vice versa).
  • Insidio reply AI GO @ROGUE
  • curtoman14 reply We could think about internet sites becoming obsolete due to new internet sites or we could think about the internet itself becoming obsolete due to new alternatives. Its natural to advance past old technology.
  • NoCopyrightJamz reply Feel free to use some of our awesome no copyright music!! (:
  • JamesFuturist reply Trouble is what you're talking about has been tried before. It was called FreeNet. It quickly fills up with cheese pizza and gets abandoned. But perhaps with ever more severe censorship something like p2p, decentralized networks can take off out of forced necessity.
  • metaljee reply Join the circle jerk and get your videos featured
  • Glassic_Gamer reply Better yet if you don't like people who censor free speech then don't vote for the leftists globalists commies in to office who promote this.
  • [ – ] opaxel1967 reply Sorry, no .. not sorry .. I disagree ! There has to be some restrictions on what can be posted on the Internet !!
  • GoMGTOW reply So basically the Left is hijacking the websites and video platforms and basically declared War on anything Libertarian or Conservative... Which they deem offensive of course.
  • SuperN3rdMaster reply this vid make me hate the government really more now they are such cunts
  • GoldenTurtle reply How about Diaspora? It's a decentralized social network.
  • Paul_W reply Steemit is a nifty choice as well.
  • MrFixIt reply I'm so confused... Almost like an Antifa about his sexuality
  • g0bkF7Ss reply Looks like a time for Etherium and IPFS!
  • [ – ] cuthbertsonnewsnetwork reply Yes VidMe does indeed oppress, i tried to upload a video about France, only 2nd overall video in a week and they refused my video saying, that i had exceeded some limit of theirs and that i had to get verified, so i went through their pathetic verification procedure and today they declined my verification, saying that they did not have enough staff to explain why and sent me FAQ list, i told them that they are no better than the Nazis on YouTube !
    • [ – ] WonderfulDraws parent reply Cut your video in two parts and upload it. They verify only people with a bigger public or to people with some popularity in social media. They do that not to censor people but to save storage room.
      • cuthbertsonnewsnetwork parent reply Good advice but cutting it in 2 parts would take away the impact of what i was saying, i still think VidMe is trying to play God same as YouTube Nazis by doing this, its a them and us situation, same as governments, do as they say not as they do, ime sick of corporates !
  • HotWithoutABuzz reply Its ashamed we are living the 1984
  • AngelofSorrow reply Well here in the west, their is going to be a lot of people going to jail then Dave. In fact I'm all for it, 3 hot's and a cot, they would only be burdening themselves more and fitting taxpayers with the bill is what leads to uprise's against tyrannical governments. Look at the crap people protest now, just wait till they start making "martyr's" out of the people.
  • hayhoestudios reply This is an incredible idea. Thanks for the content!
  • [ – ] jrswab reply Very good video as always man! I have been using a VPN for years but I agree; it's not enough. We need decentralization so they cant possibly shut down every single not and thus forever keep the networks up and running.
  • Ms_K reply Awesome!!!
  • Collin_Sorgenfrei reply Wait so you think that governments shouldn't censor certain things on social media platforms and that hate speech isn't wrong? Did I understand that right?
  • burnz_au reply G1 network, the defunct limewire..
