It seems to be open source:


Mmm. Basically they’re a soundcloud/spotify platform based in a blockchain protocol in terms of monetization, that’s it. Only their client (Another React app) and protocol (ethereum) are open source (Apache License 2.0) the rest is the same: Another privative/centralized music platform with DRM.

At the moment the only real federated/decentralized music platform is Funkwhale. Or Jamendo which is centralized but all its content is under Libre/Free copyright licenses like Creative Commons.

    I hear a lot of talk about Odysee, but it has trackers on it’s page too. Whats your take on it?

      12 years ago

      trackers are bad (especially google ones). odysee doesn’t get a pass just for being floss

      odysee/lbry’s privacy policy isn’t that much better but at least it’s clearer

      odysee has many problems, ranging from technical inabilities to questionable moderation but privacy does seem to be pretty much figured out (they do collect unnecessary information but it all looks like anonymous useful analytics)

      in conclusion, 2 trackers on the main page ain’t that bad
