🎉 Owncast 0.0.3 is out! 🎉
This is pretty amazing! An open-source video streaming service that comes with batteries included: live chat, adaptive bitrate streaming, an admin interface.
Think of it as a self-hosted Twitch alternative!

#PeerTube is such a good effort, but being killed by its usability. It basically doesn't work on mobile, playback on desktop will randomly rewind to the start a couple of times before you're done, the controls tend to disappear in fullscreen...
They should have started with a good video player.
The #IETF Internet-Draft about HTTP signatures expired again https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-httpbis-message-signatures/
The project started in 2013…
The fediverse relies on HTTP signatures since Mastodon emits and requires them but they are still non-standard.
I was notified that @tateisu's Mastodon app "Subway Tooter" has received a warning from the Google Play Store citing user-generated content that "incites discrimination".
A Mastodon app does not host or promote any content. The user types the address to connect to. The responsibility of moderating resides with that server. So unless Google is going to drop Chrome, Firefox and Opera from its platform, this is completely out of line.
