Testing out D.Tube as a YouTube alternative...
#41
Probably nothing. It´s just something they put there when they swapped our the 5-star system for likes.

Also I have to say...

The whole 'community/user policed' aspect of dTube seems like a recipe for disaster from the start simply because all kinds of hoard mentality in whatever direction the piss stream flows can only end up in total censorship and failure...

I also see nowhere to get notifications about comments on your videos, or replies to your comments, or any shit like that. Which is... lame and gay.

They better improve this site because it's breaking the conscious surface right now re: the internet audience and their hunger for a YT alternative. For them to not have a notifications system (and no messaging system either) just makes me shake my head and sincerely wonder what the hell they're thinking.

Well apparently, everything you search for has only 10 results...

Facepalm

This is looking less promising every fucking minute, LMAO, wow.

I mean that is absolutely fucking useless for any type of discovery whatsoever.

Absolutely lame and their platform will never even make it out of the frying pan, much less into the fire.

Honestly kind of an embarrassment for Steemit, and they better improve this quickly or I think all the assumptions I've ever had about Steemit were totally correct.

Steemit... give us something to believe in, come on. Come onnn. This fucking site has been up for at least 6 months as far as I can see and it still doesn't have these basic features and fixes?

Fix this shit. Fix the damn grammar. Holy hell... a half-assed attempt is even worse than no attempt at all, I'm sorry. Do better.

Under a chick's name? That's a lil weird.

Agh.

Still though. 6 months? Come on you guys... get it together. Get it together.

Catch this wave. Everything is riding on it.

Unless a video breaks the law or is stolen for profit, it shouldn´t be removed.

That´s how I´d run a video site anyway.

So I saw this super hot guy in a thumbnail on dTube... I was like hmmm!

And then I read the title, which contained a grammatical error... and all interest instantly died.

Apparently the commenting system on DT is tied into Steemit...

You see whether people have replied to you in your "Comments" section on Steemit.com.

Which is dumb as a box of shit and obviously it should be directly on DT.

Is there somewhere you can see them on DT and I'm just missing it?

I don't think so, I've looked everywhere.

Either way, there are no notifications which let you know if there's been any action...

You have to look manually on Steemit.

Bleh...

I want to believe, I'll say it again... I really do.

It just sucks because it's not conducive to quick communication regarding vids etc.

It's not efficient.

And why is there not a private messaging system on the whole of Steemit?

Steemit used to display notifications when someone left a comment/reply.

from what i can tell, all comments are put in a public blockchain, which defeats the purpose of a private message.

but what do i know with this, they've still not approved my account.

I have been thinking about it and I can foresee some pretty serious issues with DT and the model of their site/system. Literally the entire concept is flawed, aside from getting paid per video via upvote. Every other aspect I can see some type of flaw in, ranging from minor to pretty fucking serious. As a result I believe I can say with certainty that DT is not the YouTube replacement. Unfortunately.

I mean from what I can see, there isn’t even a way to delete videos...

There’s no middle ground with this ‘blockchain’ model.

Unless you want everything you intentionally and unintentionally/accidentally upload to be on the net under your name forever, DT looks like the wrong site to use. I’m reluctant to upload anything else, and I’m a pretty shameless motherfucker.

You can’t delete your account or anything you upload to the blockchain...

And I’m sorry but that is just not gonna work.

It would be fine if there was some level of moderation, or you could make vids private...

It’s almost like DT (and any other site running on this model) was invented with the idea that the internet is some kind of troll free utopia and nobody ever makes mistakes or regrets uploading shit to the net.

Comments for example can’t be removed and they can’t be impacted at all unless you basically have a bot army downvoting shit.

So it’s basically a game of who is the loser with the biggest bot army and are they for you or against you.

It’s not conducive to a freedom based system even though that’s what it’s boasted to be at its core.

I’m smelling a rat with this shit in general... it’s fine as it concerns neutral things like currency.

But as a model for social (the very word implying feelings, trends, etc.) media sites...

Seems like a fail.

Any site with such a vastly different mode of operations can’t be considered a YouTube replacement.

Take Vid.Me for example...

Aside from censoring the politics category from trending (idiots) and hosting super gay contests, they did everything right.

They had a payments system, notifications worked great, I don’t remember the specifics of their comments operation, but I seem to remember it was good enough.

You’re never going to be a YouTube replacement if you go too far out of the mold as far as what people are used to/expect from a video sharing platform. DT’s rip off of the red/black YouTube colors is about where the similarities end.

By the sounds of it, it´s not worth spending more energy on.

it did provide some interesting ideas, like the user base voting and assigning revenue. obviously it could be exploited somehow like everything, but it could be a better system than jewtube.

i've been thinking about a lot of the types of videos/channels that have been getting censored. a lot of the political / historical type stuff doesn't really need a lot of video bandwidth... it's a lot of images and mostly commentary. an optimized audio stream synch'd with still image slides would provide them with almost all of what they need to do. would dramatically reduce bandwidth cost for the host. the images could be stored in imgur [or similar] and the audio the same, the host would just be collating the offsite content for the user.

i've also seen what appear to be internationally hosted video sites, mostly catering to porn, that don't seem to remove any content. there's all sorts of movies and tv shows on some of them. i've seen conspiracy type videos on some of them.

the tide is definitely turning against youtube so something will pop up soon.

My conclusion about DT at this time is that it's unbelievably fucking boring due to a total lack of community interaction and the over-complication of interaction as a result of having to leave the d.tube domain in order to look and see if you've received any comments. I get the feeling most people don't even know how it works.

It will not be successful if it continues in this format.
