@LPS Blender existed before YouTube & co, and it could have existed even if it would have born in this "era". In consequence, there was no need of a PeerTube instance to simultaneously use Blender and not use YouTube. In fact, even playing videos is not needed to use Blender. Blender was absolutely not an obstacle to delete YouTube accounts and put its URLs in hosts file (to 127.0.0.1). #FalseTechnologicalSolutionism #TechnologicalSolutionism
@LPS My point is that there is no need of PeerTube to avoid a part of surveillance capitalism, watching videos is not a need, so there was no "freedom excuse" to use YouTube before PeerTube (and there was already BitTorrent without web video player before if videos would have been crucial). I fundamentally disagree with this : "we can **now** #deleteyoutube as well" (emphasis added by myself). More attractive technologies should not be used to put freedom in bins, technology can be refused.
