Thanks to each and every one of you, the crowdfunding's counter stopped at 53 100 € which represents 266% of its first goal !
We would therefore like to thank you all warmly for supporting this really ambitious project.
It is now our turn to uphold to our commitment to deliver version 1 of PeerTube by the end of October 2018, with the announced and funded features :
○ Interface localization, to support multiple languages;
○ Video subtitles, to facilitate video accessibility for diverse audiences;
○ RSS feeds, to follow instances, users and channels through RSS protocol;
○ Video import from URL (YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, etc.) or torrent file;
○ Improved and advanced search feature;
○ Video redundancy (to share bandwidth between instances or as fallback if the original instance is down);
○ Subscriptions to users & channels throughout the federation (for users to subscribe to whatever they want regardless of their instance federation settings);
○ Other improvments to ensure software stability (bug fixes) and scalability.
We have one last practical thing to ask those of you who gave more than 25€ : the name we intend to use for the reward is the "Username" we'll find on your KissKissBankBank profile. You have until Sunday, July 15th to change this username as you want. We'll export all usernames on this day and it will appear on joinpeertube.org's "Hall of Fame" page and the readme/bakers.md files of the project.
In France, summer holidays has started for many people including part of the Framasoft team. This means things will slow down a bit but, don't worry, the development will continue during this period and you'll be regularly informed of the progress of PeerTube, the software of which you are the heroes and heroines.
The Framasoft team.
