Hi, which sources does Powerampp support? Can you use a Subsonic or Ampache server?

That’s good for you. It didn’t really work for me. VLC is a good player, but not a good music suite. And I’m less interested in playing Spotify than Subsonic/Ampache.

A lot less and I love it after the first 5 minutes! Thank you. It’s not very stable though.

Nuclear looked promising first, but for me it felt too ‘webapp-ish’ and I also didn’t manage to play music from the various sources. Cannot recommend in it’s current shape.

Yes, which is also the reason I don’t feel to switch the instance yet. But i mean… 63 users / 6 months is a bit underwheliming imho.

Ich kann mir vorstellen, dass mit der Zeit grössere, kommerzielle Plattformen ins Fediverse einsteigen – mit kompatibler, aber kommerzieller Software (Ads, Subscriptions). Potenziell ist es sehr vorteilhaft, da man nicht Facebook oder Twitter komplett ausgeliefert ist und niemand einem das “Network” wegnehmen kann. Es wird aber noch lange dauern. Ich stimme dir zu, dass der fehlende Clickbait-Faktor und bisher auch die fast unmögliche Monetarisierung die Adoption im Mainstream massiv hemmt.

Ich denke (und hoffe!), dass in ein paar Jahren die Kombination aus Funkionalität, Interoperabilität und Freiheit ein grosses Publikum anziehen wird. Und damit auch die klassischen, grossen Player.

Zum Glück limitiert die Föderation aber die Monetarisierungsmöglichkeiten. Ich sehe das Fediverse damit eher auf Infrastrukturebene, wie Email, und somit auch nicht als “Produkt”.

As you can see, I choose Feddit and not Lemmy.ml as my instance. One of the main reasons was exactly to avoid joining the flagship instance. I speak German so Feddit seemed fitting.

However the communiy on Feddit is really small and most posts don’t get any answers. Therefore it’s probably better to stick with lemmy.ml until the Lemmy galaxy in the Fediverse gets big enough to justfy more planets (instances).

That’s just the base to build video calls upon. I’m a big fan of p2p as well, but p2p only limits the number of participants pretty hard. (4 people, yes. 10? Maybe. 50? Nope.)

How are decentralized video calls bulit into every browser exactly?

It’s always good to provide a screenshot in the repository. Most people (including me) won’t clone and try it if they don’t know how it looks like.

Firefox is my brower for years. The latest and ongoing fuckeries from Mozilla make me mad, so I’ll probably switch to Librewolf. I have Chromium-based browser for compatibility reasons (mainly video conferences, Youtube sometimes). I won’t use any Chromium as my main browser because I care about diversity and don’t want an effectivly Google-controlled application.

For search I recommend DuckDuckGo or Brave. Personally I use a recently setup private Searx instance and I’m quite happy with it.
