So what the fuck is this

Its a decentralized peertube-like streaming platform. BUT they say they can pay creators in crypto. How? Where is that money coming from without ads? Something doesn't add up

I think they don't re-encode videos, that saves them a lot of costs compared to other video-sites. but it's on you to upload a video with the right video-codec. And you can't change the resolution unless the video-creator used a video-container with multiple resolutions.

It's based on a trade-off.

Odysee is in a lot of trouble with the Securities and Exchange Commission right now for providing speculative commodities for user buy-in. This sort of government scrutiny is what's in store for all services attempting to shoehorn crypto into their social media alternatives.

This is actually an option for PeerTube instances but most don't use it.

Not related, but I love how Bitcoin and Bitcoin-clones are called crypto. The word "crypto" has connotations that you can't see everything, ie. that it's a scam.
