I am currently maintaining a peertube instance for fsci @ https://videos.fsci.org.in/
I would like to handover its responsibility to someone .
Currently, it is running from my personal Scaleway account.
@harish thanks for setting it up and maintaining till now. Lets see if anyone steps up to maintain it. If no one steps up in next 2 weeks, we can stop the service.
is the service being used widely
No. That is another problem.

so if its not being used then why cant we just kill it .
@syam it is a chicken and egg problem. Unless it becomes a dependable service, we can't really ask people to use it. Without widely promoting, people don't know such a service exist. It is an important replacement for services like youtube.com
Can I promote this link? I too may be able to contribute videos.
We are trying to make it sustainable right now, once we migrate to a new server, we can start using/promoting it.
I am willing to maintain the peertube instance for fsci. @harishk., please provide guidelines to maintain the server and documents. I am going through the installation documents available online.
@shine also volunteered (we discussed about it at debutsav.in)
Hey, I'm sorry I forgot about this earlier. I'm here now. Thanks for giving me a nudge earlier. :wink:
@praveenarimbrathod may i maintain the peertube instance.
Yes, you and shine can work as a team. The more volunteers we have, the better.
thanks @praveenarimbrathod . @harishk please forward any documents to email@example.com
@shine we can move ahead right. please send a mail to the above mentioned mail id
@Tanzeem Mohammad Basheer: We are already keeping server details and credentials as per the usual FSCI server maintenance process. ( Ie, details are kept in a git repo with restricted access )
Other than installation details & credentials, there is nothing much to document. But still I will try to send you some documentation.
Migrating the server from my personal Scaleway account is the most important step that we need to do on this topic.
can you suggest an account alternate to Scaleway ? You hosted it in free account or paid account.
Scaleway is the cheapest we found. Do you have a credit card? We should use a dedicated account for peertube. Create a mailing list for admins at lists.fsci.org.in which can also be used for registration in scaleway and other places.
I don't have a credit card. I use an SBI Debit card. I was ok with having technical support for maintaining the peertube instance. Will need to check whether I can provide financial support as weel. How much will it cost in INR terms or per-monthly basis.
We just need some one to use the credit card, we can find sponsors for the actual funding which can be transferred to the person who provide the credit card.
I use my HDFC debit card with online.net which is another partner with scaleway.com.
@tanzeem, SBI doesn't enable international transactions on debit cards, maybe you need to enable that to use your debit card on such websites.
ok that seems good. @shine do you have a credit card
@Tanzeem Mohammad Basheer: Also, please note that, it may not be a good idea to use any free hosting service for this purpose because, peertube does video encoding on the fly and it is a compute intensive operation.
In short, CPU & disk space requirements are not minimal for peerputbe instance. we need paid account for hosting peertube instance and when users increases, maintenance cost will increase .
I do; but I don't prefer using it unless absolutely necessary. I try to keep my online transactions to a minimum and restricted to my debit card. My debit card has international transactions enabled and has been used to pay my personal server bills at online.net.
If need be, we can put my credit card on file if that is a mandate. Let's try it out with a debit card first, shall we?
Yes, next issue is to use a mailing list as an alias for the admins, easier to manage than an email. @bhe can you create videos at fsci.org.in address?
Hi all, Is there any update on this ? How can we finalize this process?
what next @harishk , @shine
We need to get a new server at scaleway.com, using a lists.fsci.org.in alias address.
So, How we can finalize this? I think a Riot group chat can speed up the process.
We can use #videos.fsci.org.in:poddery.com
@Praveen: Is it a question to me? Sorry i couldn't understand your question.
No, it is for @shine and @tanzeem to solve the hosting puzzle and get a server.
