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 github.com/JohnXLivingston/pee

It was announced on the PeerTube blog back in November at joinpeertube.org/news#live-plu

The chat doesn't require an account, you just pick a nickname and start chatting.

You can interact with the videos boosted by this account without leaving Mastodon.

You can watch, comment, like, share, subscribe all from within Mastodon. You don't need to click on the video's link at all.

PeerTube and Mastodon federate together using the same technical standard, so actions you take in Mastodon will appear next to the video in PeerTube.

See the attached images for more details.
