Upload and share a video
To share a video, you first have to go to the video page you want to share. If you are the publisher, you can list all your videos via the left-menu three dots option My Videos. Once on the video page, you just have to click the Share button, and are presented with a few options:
- a URL to the video, i.e.:
https://framatube.org/videos/watch/9db9f3f1-9b54-44ed-9e91-461d262d2205. This address can be sent to your contact the way you want ; they will be able to access the video directly.
- an embed code that allows you to insert a video player in your website.
Tip : the small icones at the end of the line allow you to copy the whole URL at once.
You can download videos directly from the web interface of PeerTube, by clicking the dot button “…” aside the title, and then the “Download” option. A choice is then given to you regarding how you want to download:
- “Direct Download”, which does what it says: your web browser downloads the video from the origin server of the video.
- peer-to-peer download via “Torrent”, where you need a WebTorrent compatible client to download the video not only from the origin server but also from other peers watching the video or sharing it from their own WebTorrent-compatible clients at home! (by doing so you help the network be more resilient!) - any BitTorrent can also download the video, but without WebTorrent support they won’t be able to exchange with web browsers.
Tip : depending on the instance, you can download the video in different formats. However, please make sure you are granted a licence compatible with the planned usage of the video beforehand.
