Are you 18 years old or above?
My math was wrong about TFM streaming bandwidth gigabyte. 250 viewers consume 1GB a minute not a second.

I couldnt find foxy tube.
Amr no disrespect, do you have SOYBOYZ in your family besides your cousin ahmed who stole your money ? I think we know or have someone who is a soyboyz in our families unfortunately. The thing is Soyboys now can have kids and give birth to genetically inferior soyboys and make things more worse. 150 years ago , those same soyboys would have been killed by a squirrel. That’s why i think men who are soyboys shouldn’t have kids . I don’t give af what religion says because lot of genetically inferior people use religion excuse to get married and have kids. Even though they don’t deserve to have kids. So in conclusion, no matter what race you are , don’t have kids if you have soyboy genetics .
Amr, thank you for what you do here on MGTOW.TV. Susan Woj-shitski deleted my account even though I NEVER posted a single video in the 11 years I had my YT account. Finally, here, we have a place we can go and not worry about that jewish BULLSHIT. You have a good head on your shoulders and are doing a great job running this platform!
I'm pretty sure most users are audio-only territory and only use video sites because those are far more available to small creators and such. * you should implement an audio-only feature for every tier which would save you a shitton on bandwidth costs * hide HD videos from youtube-dl. later on you could collab with them to implement a login system for the site and then allow premium accounts to access HD quality. * reach out to Raging Golden Eagle. apart from audience and such, he's also a full time developer, and while I don't know the rates, it can't hurt to ask him for help.
i think for live streams this makes sense to make it audio, but to do this for videos already shared on the website, he already reduces the resolution to free accounts as well as to users who come in and don't create an account. they only see resolutions as high as 480p and no higher, unless they choose one of the more expensive options. but to turn the entire website into audio based on membership will reduce the overall popularity and discovery of the website, if all ends up being audio. we need a little of both imo, i like the idea of audio for live streaming. folks like TFM can always upload his video after the fact, but during the live stream is when it's using the most bandwidth, but i'm just using TFM as an example. anyone else who wants to do an stream, and to save costs should consider audio for their stream. i understand entropy had to drop their video format, because the bandwidth costs were just too high, which makes sense. so the best option when it comes to streaming is through audio if ppl really want to still listen to an live show that is. if not, then the other option of using youtube is another idea. it's his new streaming idea, it's not fool proof but it will keep overall costs down and make it less complicated, however i know ppl like TFM will never consider it because of how he feels about youtube. idk what the big idea is, especially if he does it within an account separate from his main channel on youtube. in fact it doesn't need to say TFM on youtube, it can be under any name to keep the algorithm away from his channel, he would be essentially be using the service as an placement holder while he streams here and where all the comments will show up. use googles tools but don't allow youtube to know it's true purpose, and keep the live stream users low so youtube doesn't take notice of said channel.
@KEEPER: I didn't say he should *force* audio only on free users, I said he should make it available to everyone. and even a 144p video costs more bandwidth than the audio stream only. for example, watching slideshows like what Sandman uses is entirely unnecessary as far as his content goes.
Okay, so I misunderstood what you meant.
This original post hit it on the money. I have been thinking of mentioning to Amr that allowing an audio-only version of content would save him a lot of money because I really only listen to these videos. Because of that I am always sure to choose the lowest resolution of every video I watch which is usually 240. And as the original post said he can go down even lower to 144.
You are doing an amazing job for just one man. Any chance you can find another mgtow to help with the website for free? Unfortunately I don't have the time to "learn to code".
I did help by translating the website in French but Amr didn't update it yet.. There's always something we can do to help the website.. By the way coding is not that difficult but it asks time... It depends what languages you want to learn.. HTML and CSS are quite easy then PHP is not that diffuclt too but once you start coding in Java, C, C+ or Ruby on rails etc yup it's more difficult and it asks more time to learn ;-)
@Doggk: There's a few updates from the vendor I must update and when I do I'll implement your translations
@Alpha_Male_Lifestyle: Ok no problem, if there are other things like apps to translate to french, don't hesitate to hit me up ! I'll do it ;-)
@Alpha_Male_Lifestyle: you should also prepare for the eventual deplatforming by payment processors and the CDN (which I presume is Amazon)
would their be a way to listen to audio only? save bandwidth because sometimes when i listen to things i am not even on the screen. People could listen at work and save data and so forth. You would be the first to make a versatile audio playback version without visuals.
actually talkstreamlive.com already does this. and have been for almost a decade. but i agree that it would save on bandwidth usage if live streaming through audio, i'm not sure how the live chat would work in that scenario though, like an example is if say instead TFM suddenly had over 100,000 users following him on this website, the video format would kill this website and it might not ever come back from that. but if it were just audio and maybe the comments section, the overall costs on the bandwidth would be considerably lower. i just don't know by how much. i want Amr to be prepared for such an influx of users rather than be taken out completely by one stream with way to many views.
@KEEPER: yep exactly. From my remote understanding of basic code, i would imagine the would be a audio video splitter. i imagine it would run the same just a black screen where the video is. if i am correct on my understanding i have picked up. This needs to e done on the server so the video doesnt get sent. Its sounds like a ball ache but once implemented should help a fair bit IMO
if you gained over 56,000 new users overnight who followed someone doing an live stream, this website might not survive after this, so why not go for audio streaming instead, it will limit issues into the future in the case a bunch of ppl start moving into the website to live stream. you never know when our bubble will pop to when a bunch of ppl flood in through the flood gates, and start consuming the websites resources like a vampire on crack. maybe it could be an feature for cheaper live streaming services, if done through audio streams? one of the packages could pay for it essentially. of course i'm just spit balling ideas here, because this is what i do best. the website talkstreamlive.com just before covid hit. Survey Period: (01/01/2018 – 12/31/2018) Sample Size: 28.8 Million Listening Sessions then the website gained. Survey Period: (01/01/2020 – 12/31/2020) Sample Size: 45.5 Million Listening Sessions Source: Talk Stream Live Editor’s note: Talk Stream Live (TSL) sampled record-setting 45.5 million listeners (increase by nearly 10 million) during 2020 to produce. https://blog.talkstreamlive.co....m/category/tsl-power if you were to do something similar, perhaps the website would be used more, and we also have free speech within the comments, just create an live feed of comments for the audio streams. for the most part live streams there really isn't much to see as it's mostly audio anyway, but for some reason everyone wants the highest resolution for their video so the video ends up helping in the resource consumption bogging down the website as well as increased bandwidth costs. at the end of the day, i'm just trying to save you money and still continue to exist and provide what folks want in an platform. i understand innovation is an strong trait, but you said it yourself, if this website were to become much bigger, and ppl didn't donate, you would be fucked. so why not plan ahead and do something that uses less resources, because at the end of the day ppl just want an reliable place where they can say their peace without censorship like youtube. think of how video games are thought about nowadays, the AAA developers seem to only release games that are bigger and better than their last, which causes them to promise something that they can't realistically provide unless they convince the consumer that it's a great buy even though they release the game in an broken and unusable state. you are not an AAA developer, you are an indi developer who has to keep your scope and scale down in order to survive the cost benefit analysis in order to make money on your idea. if you use something that causes far to many resources, it could potentially bleed you dry. i don't want this to happen to this website.
i'm super tired and going to go to bed, so if i messed up something in what i wrote, i'm sorry and perhaps i will fix it in the morning when i come back.
That's what I'll be looking into next.
working on donations alone, i can see where this could be an problem as well, an example is TFM's morning constitutional videos, they are much less viewed when live and when they are eventually released they also get less views. but hardly anyone donates to these streams, and a lot more ppl donate to him through the TFM shows. which are mostly the longer shows.
i like the idea of using youtube's software to stream here instead. i found out today that the stream could stream in private, but i don't know if it could be shared through this website while in private on youtube, it might work through an unlisted link.
No, YT live stream must be public and cannot be private or unlisted for us to use as an embed.
most videos on this website i usually watch the lowest resolution that i can, even if i can watch higher resolutions. and sometimes i will download the video to listen to it on my phone when i want to be mobile. i'm not sure in the technical stuff when it comes to downloading a video compared to streaming a video in the terms of bandwidth usage. i assume it's much less because i downloaded it, instead of streaming it from the website.
it's not just innovation, it's also having a good foundation before hand of implementing these other things.
250 viewers consume 1GB a minute. Which is 60 GB per hour. And if the stream lasts up to 7 hours, that's 420GB for that one show. Now I wonder how much you could save if it were just audio live streaming. Yes while this would be Sacrificing video quality, we could still keep and use the live chat using considerably less resources than video alone.
Or maybe this is a bad idea, you can't run based off of tips only when this much bandwidth is being used per view. Sire it's not as bad as you originally had thought with the 1GB per second.
But it's still quite high and resource heavy per video streamed.
So it's a good thing that your math was wrong.
BITCHute is tanking. Censorship is rife. Video quality is still poor, buffering, all of that is sub-par per industry standards. Comment system is primitive. Actually, I dont have much nice to say about bitchute other than it's not youtube. Youtube is basically only good for music.
This is why I haven't pushed this platform because we are in stealth mode. Our competitors are not aware of us and bitchute is resting on their laurels.
BitChute's censoring is nothing compared to JewTube. Very little is blocked and I'm still able to post effective comments.
I use youtube vanced , so I never see advertising in android. For windows firefox and ad blocker.
@Alpha_Male_Lifestyle: keep up the slow but steady pace to survive another day.
@Alpha_Male_Lifestyle: i still think live streaming through audio will help reduce costs, TFM can always upload the video on the website when he's done streaming, but during the live stream if done through audio, it could save on more than just bandwidth but save on resources used.
@bousso: vanced is potentially spyware. firefox mobile and the kiwi browser both support ublock origin and extensions that block the page visibility api so you can play videos in background, too.
Is vanced only YouTube?
This is precisely why I gave up on Bitchute. It has actually gone backwards compared to when I first started watching content there. Mgtow.tv may not have the variety that Bitchute has but at least it's a lot more functional.
