Google has monopolised the hosting of content for over a decade since its acquisition of YouTube. Talking about how Google manipulates audiences and censors views through the platform would be too big a subject to go into here, but be aware that there's finally a viable contender to YouTube looming on the horizon.
Federated (ActivityPub) video streaming platform using P2P (BitTorrent) directly in the web browser with WebTorrent. PeerTube is sponsored by Framasoft, a non-profit that promotes, spreads and develops free culture in general, and free-libre software in particular.
It was founded by Chocobozzz and all details can be found here - https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube
Instances, pulling all content from a YT channel with a single command, and adapting the UI to suit apertus° CI will be possible.
Beta by the end of April 2018.
