LET’S FUCKING GO
EDIT: If this allows the existence of a FOSS Twitch alternative, this is a blessing in disguise
Privacy has become a very important issue in modern society, with companies and governments constantly abusing their power, more and more people are waking up to the importance of digital privacy.
In this community everyone is welcome to post links and discuss topics related to privacy.
much thanks to @gary_host_laptop for the logo design :)
OP you talked about FOSS Twitch alternative, and I recently found an interesting one : Owncast https://owncast.online/
I created a Lemmy account just to post this lol
I found Owncast while randomly browsing fediverse.party
Welcome to lemmy! Hope you enjoy
Hi thanks :)
I initially come from Reddit, but its centralized and sometimes very slow, so I gave a shot to Lemmy. The website is super fast and the interface is pretty !
Welcome! The UI still has some issues here and there, but it is fairly decent already. I was so impressed by the project I even started hosting an instance, which, by the way, is very easy and cheap to do!
Nice thanks for the info :) For the moment I stay in Reddit for the remaining of the GME saga, and then I will surely migrate.
It might be interesting to read the code, just to gain increase the knowledge behind such titanic streaming platform. However, if I’m not wrong, it is illegal to take advantage of a leak like this to build anything.
Wine and/or ReactOS developers refused to read winxp leaked code, because making use of leaked code would make their projects illegal.
I’m not 100% sure about these statements, so if I’m wrong somewhere I will edit or delete this post.
Can’t expect others to respect our licenses if we don’t do the same, so let’s make our own twitch with blackjack and hookers.
Also, this looks pretty massive.
The interest here isn’t in using the proprietary Twitch source code to build competing services. Rather, this code offers a rare glimpse into the inner workings of one of the Anglosphere’s most significant social media platforms. A chance perform a concrete analysis of all the anti-patterns, surveillance mechanisms, and information controls which characterize modern platform capitalism. A chance to measure our paranoia against the state of the art of corporate social media.
It would be even cooler if we could dig through the code of Facebook, Google, or Twitter, but Twitch is close enough where we could extrapolate a lot of insights and better understand the state of the industry.
These past few years there has been a lot of discourse about “The Algorithm.” How all these major platforms, like Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and YouTube curate what we see based on marketing profiles, demographic information, our comment, likes, dislikes, tracking cookies etc. How they shatter epistemology and push different narratives and ideologies to different groups, while demoting or censoring information which threatens the state and its financial stakeholders. How they shadow-ban users and media. Any chance we have to demystify “The Algorithm” and understand exactly what these companies are doing behind the scenes is incredibly valuable.
