So, apparently @peertube now has live chat built into it through a an official plugin (you can see a screenshot below).
The plugin has a github at https://github.com/JohnXLivingston/peertube-plugin-livechat
It was announced on the PeerTube blog back in November at https://joinpeertube.org/news#live-plugin-app
The chat doesn't require an account, you just pick a nickname and start chatting.
Hi. I'm the plugin maintainer. Thanks for the highlight.
There are many new features on my roadmap. I'll work again on this plugin by june.
I'm still looking for funding, so I can free some time to work on it. Links to my liberapay account in the github repo :)
If someone has question about the plugin, i'm here ☝️
@FediVideos @peertube I contacted the author @John_Livingston in the first phases of development of the plugin, and used it many times in last year, see at the end of this page:
It is unvaluable in emacipating streaming events from the global platforms!
