  1. On the subject of Odysee/LBRY as a YouTube alternative - I have to respectfully disagree. There are very few apps that work well with Odysee and the content on it (at least in my experience) tends to lean toward extreme fringe political and tinfoil hat conspiracy theorists. In my short time exploring the platform it looked like there were basically three things on there - Linux videos, antivax videos, and alt right content. Not the kind of place I want to associate with, personally.

  2. Avatar for Rankle Rankle says:

    I use it mainly to watch the shows I follow that are cross posted from YouTube without the adverts.

  3. As far as I know you can find all this stuff also on Youtube but nobody will come to the conclusion that you should not be associated with Google, that tracks you across devices and even other platforms owned by it.

    I personally do not search for alt right content nor do I see it on Odyssee because it is not my thing. I am not saying that is does not exist. But then I guess my feed is just too full of Linux content. :slight_smile:

  4. Not to the extent that you do on Odysee, you can’t. For better or worse YouTube is a lot less permissive of alt right content and hate speech. Odysee is much more free speech respecting, in theory at least, but that does leave it open for toxic content.

    Bryan Lunduke pointed out some of this in his statement explaining why he left the platform last month.

    Back to my point on a lack of good apps - I tend to consume videos on my Roku through apps, and the only ones that work for Odysee have no way to log in as far as I remember - so you get a list of what all is trending regardless of your preferences. I didn’t have to search for alt right content to see it in the trending lists. It’s there on the front page.

  5. I respect his decision but also find it a bit childish because of some dumb video, and it really was a dumb video but I only found that video because he ranted about it and it had nothing to with the alt right as far as I know.
    Btw Lunduke is pretty much conservative in his political views.
