Just to make clear, you don't need to click on its link to interact with a PeerTube video on Mastodon.

The PeerTube video will appear as a Mastodon post, and you can watch it, like it, share it, comment on it, subscribe etc without leaving Mastodon. (You can pretty much ignore the link in its post!)

See the attached screenshots for a guide to how this works.

Tried out and can't believe how easy it was to use! πŸ’–

git clone --depth=1
cd FastLBRY-terminal

Run "connect" to connect to LBRY.
Then, for example, run "search smoothie recipe" on the prompt to search, enter the corresponding number on the left to select a video.
Optionally run "description" to see details of the video.
Run "open mpv" to open the video on mpv. Close the player when done. Press another # or enter and repeat.

No install needed! πŸ‘

@bcallah That still deserves a big thanks to you. πŸ˜„ I'm new to OpenBSD and ports system. So I couldn't have done it myself.

@s8n @fluffy @redstarfish This is a possibility. But this can even happen in the case of Apple store.

Apple store has already had a number of malware cases. But still none for F-Droid. The closest I can find is this:

On one side you have a store that hosts no source apps that we can't know for sure what they do, on the other hand another serves apps with inpectable source code with build system that builds from source directly. F-Droid seems like a clear winner to me.

@privasim Hello and welcome! Always good to see new faces.

@fluffy @redstarfish Yeah, it is. It has signed repositories and strict inclusion policy. No nonfree apps can get through, even the ones that depend on Google services are rejected.

The only ones to get a slight consideration are the ones that contact some nonfree web service (e.g. weather apps). Even then it shows a warning on the app page.

@redstarfish "under the guise of "protection," Apple's App Store only allows technologically restricted software"
Not only on iPhones, I read that it requires using Xcode to install some development tools on Mac OS. Such a closed system and a bad example of how things should be.

But even after all these, is Apple store secure? Not so much. Malwares can get through. On the other hand, what's the cleanest and secure app store? F-Droid. Having source code for apps ensures that nothing is fishy.

What is freedom 2? The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor.

I've just finished defining all the webform input types (and refining form attributes) for the HTMLite specification I've been writing!

Now I still need to define how the data entered into these controls are sent to the webservice... Then appendices!

Won't be long until I've completed this first draft!!

@theruran I've tried to do something similar. Notepad++, Lazarus, archiving utilities and some tools I use work fine. I failed to install Node.js and PHP 7 (got an old version running though) but I can probably ssh into some other machine and use them. Another issue is that Firefox crashes sometimes and it's not a fairly recent version.

Here is a note about my trials:

Hello FediTips users!

I don't have any donation links and don't normally ask for donations.

However, the person who hosts my Fediverse account has been hit with extremely large energy bills lately πŸ˜”

If you appreciate FediTips, could you show some love to the hoster @stux who makes FediTips possible? ❀️

Stux's donation link is here:

➑️ (scroll down to the section marked "support the community")

Alternatively, if you are looking to run your own site, get a plan from Stux's independent hosting service @Stuxhost (

Stux runs lots of free libre services to help people looking for privacy (, and has done for years. However, servers mean energy bills, and energy has got expensive lately, so now Stux needs our help!

@redstarfish I love using Badwolf for basic browsing sometimes. It has JS disabled by default and that makes it so comfortable. No cookie popups, no junk. Just content. But is fairly new for me. I guess I'll have to try.

I have a feeling it will break some sites to an extent that I won't be able to get to content without crazy amount of scrolling.
