@eliotberriot Let's get rid of Spotify, Deezer and iTunes! 🔥

What @lunar said! But why stop there? Live video stream relay/rss would simultaneously eliminate YT and Twitch ✊ Counting on the inimitable #funkwhale team for this, long-stalled request on PeerTube.

@kylebronsdon @lunar I'd rather have the people from PeerTube working on this, we have absolutely no experience working with video, so doing it in Funkwhale would mean learning everything, and recoding everything from scratch, basically ;)

Ah, I beg your pardon, it was *audio* live stream! They crossed in my mind because I relay an Icecast audio-only variation with my live video stream, so would be more than good enough for me :)

@lunar @eliotberriot the big problem is copyright holders and all other similar parasites that can DMCA the shit out of you and your hosting provider. The system needs to be extremely robust against them. Can probably be achieved with WebTorrent, the way PeerTube uses it but for audio. Some careful design choices need to be made.

@grishka I'm probably missing something, but what's the benefit of using WebTorrent (or any other P2P technology) for serving audio when it comes to be robust against abusive DMCA requests?

@eliotberriot makes it harder to track down the source of the file.

@grishka At the technical level, yes, but the webserver hosting the file seeds it anyway, and acts as a tracker (which are typically taken down really fast unless I'm mistaken), so I'm not sure how much a protection it is in practice
