DTube's Upload gets upgraded

in #dtube2 years ago

While Steem was busy splitting into two different networks, DTube was working hard to get ready for the full launch on May 10th.

Make it easier to understand

We just patched d.tube and you will be able to discover a new upload process, that now correctly guides you and explains to you all the different options that are available to get your videos files online before publishing to the blockchain. Ever been confused by DTube's upload in the past? This update aims to fix this long running complaint from our users.

BTFS and Skynet support

Starting from today, you can start using BTFS or Skynet as a decentralized file storage for your videos. DTube file upload has been using BTFS as the default storage protocol for a couple of weeks without issues. DTube is also now running a 48TB BTFS gateway on btfs.d.tube

Add Videos directly from hashes

One thing that has been lacking since the beggining, was the ability to add your video directly from existing hashes on IPFS. You can now do that by using the 'Peer-to-peer' option in the first step of the new upload page. You will need to manually enter hashes of your source video, and optionally of the sub-quality files (720p, 480p, etc).

This feature is meant as a convenience tool for experienced creators with large libraries that they are willing to self-host and self-encode. By publishing a video on DTube this way, you don't even need to upload your file to us.

File upload stability improved

We know many people got discouraged with using our DTube file upload since we introduced the ability to link from third-party providers, and the fact that we have to regularly delete old videos to make space on our disks.

In order to be able to hold videos for longer, and keep providing a simple upload mechanism, we made some adjustments and decided to limit encoding to videos of maximum 20 minutes. Our file upload infrastructure has been running very smoothly since the changes, we invite you to give it another shot.

Mirrors feature

Since DTube now allows you to add so many video sources (IPFS, BTFS, Skynet, Youtube, Twitch, Instagram, etc), it makes sense to be able to include multiple sources to the same video. After uploading a first video source, just click on the 'Add Video' button again and try to combine different sources.

If you care about decentralization, and making your videos resilient, it's a powerful option. By default, DTube's player will try to load your video using a decentralized protocol, and will use third party providers only as a fallback.

Much more convenient and nice feature than previous one. I am satisfied with this new update

Great news guys ! Starting using DTube today as a streaming recorder platform for my favorite Blockchain game : Gods Unchained !

This is fantastic update and glad to know that upload is improved. Upload was a problem and needed a fix. Thanks for making @dtube a better place and I just love dtubing

I am very happy that you are making these great changes that are necessary, I am very happy that the month of May arrives for the great announcement.

Bigger and better things for Dtube creators. Thanks for all your hard work.

At least there's some unabashed good news amidst all the chaos. I noticed the UI changed just a few minutes ago while uploading - and I should've taken advantage of it because providing multiple sources for a video seems pretty cool to me.

This is fantastic news. DTube just keeps improving.

What about on the mainnet You also migrate to HIVE that would be gold eheheh

please read discord or the same post on peakd

Ohhh You released some news already. Awesome. Will go and read them now :)

I'm just a regular user, what's the best option out of the three source?


If you are on mobile, most likely you just want to use file-upload, or if video is already on youtube or other, use 3rd party

Okay thanks a lot, third-party it is. any plan for hive?

we posted the same update on hive with additional precisions about hive in this update

what is steemit. please tell me something about steemit. i cant write steemit post

Very good news indeed!
Much more improved dtube will be more available and easier to upload videos.
Good peer to peer facility. Well done

Hi dear Dtube and community :-)

I've been trying to post the past few days, and getting a blank-ish page saying my post is uploading, be patient - but it doesn't upload. I'm using the most basic uploading for folks who know no better - can someone advise me if this is simply a temporary glitch that will remedy soon? I am on Hive and not understanding if Dtube is all integrated with the Hive already...?

excellent the changes, but I could not mount my video au when I put the third option, can you help me?

is dTube staying on Steem or migrating to Hive?

DTube is compatible with both Hive and Steem. Just go to the login and connect both accounts. Your videos / votes / comments will be broadcasted on both networks.

Cool. Thanks.

Super stoked about it, noticed it before I came to read the blog post, and posted a comment on your twitter feed about it. Nice.
