Frequently Asked Questions
1. Does this cost anything?
YouTube, Steemit.com, and Steemir are completely free; as you probably know, Steemit.com users generate income by posting content; the money comes from network usage, and there are no hidden fees. However, 25% of any
Invite your friends to get onboard Steemir, and for each one that installs Steemir we'll give you 5% more of the profit per video, up to 20% total, reducing the amount Steemir gets to 5%. Your friends will also receive 5% more per video, for
signing up with your referral link. You can find your personal referral link in the settings on the Steemir Chrome extension or go directly to referrals.
Or if you really enjoy Steemir and you feel like leaving a 5 star review on Steemir on the Chrome Extension site , please [send us a link]
(https://steemir.com/index#contact) to that review , and once verified, we'll send you a code to immediately receive the 20% total for your steem account!
2. How fast can I upload YouTube videos?
You can upload as many videos as fast as YouTube normally allows, but you can only post one video to Steemit.com every 5 minutes. Steemir does show a counter that shows how much time you need to wait if you want the video to post to Steemit.com
3. Can I use Steemir to post my older YouTube videos too?
Not yet, but we are working on it! We are also working on adding scheduling that hooks into YouTube's video scheduling!
4. Are my videos decentralized?
Not yet! Currently only the link to your YouTube video is sent to the Steem blockchain, but that feature is currently in the works too, of getting a full backup of your video in a decentralized location using IPFS and/or WebTorrent technologies,
including also connecting to BitChute. Connecting to DTube is also a possibility but I have spoken with @heimindanger and he is not interested in connecting it up just yet, as he is already charging 25% per
5. Can you add new features?
Yes, if you have ideas for improvement or new features, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org . Many new features are already in the works, and you will be seeing them in future updates.
If in case you find bugs or problems, or need technical assistance, you can search our knowledge base or open a support ticket, and someone will get back to you very quickly.
Long Term Goals
It would be great to ultimately not have to use YouTube in the future, and migrate over to decentralized video services such as BitChute.com, Dtube.video, Minds.com and vid.me. Much like the early travelers to the Americas, leaving their
homelands to escape oppressive governments, Steemir aims to ferry people over to the freer new platforms in comfort and style!
I held off adding more features just yet, as I didn't want the extension to be too confusing for newcomers. YouTubers that have never heard of Steemit.com may be overwhelmed enough, without introducing new concepts such as decentralized video,
and BitChute and DTube.
Please leave any comments for improvements below, or on our website, https://steemir.com
Thank you, and I hope you enjoy it!
