Changelog

v6.1.0

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • You must update nginx configuration: https://github.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/blob/develop/support/nginx/peertube
    • Add location ~ ^/api/v1/users/[^/]+/imports/import-resumable$ { block
  • This release changes the way how PeerTube counts a video view:
    • Views are taken into account after 10 seconds instead of 30 seconds (can be changed in YAML config)
    • Views use a Session ID generated by the web browser instead of using the request IP (former behavior can be restored in YAML config)
    • The goal of this change is to get closer to how other video platforms like Mux, Vimeo, or Instagram work

SECURITY

  • Compact ActivityPub JSON-LD objects before using them to prevent incorrect access control @tesaguri
  • Protect ActivityPub information related to private/internal/blocked videos

Admin config (non-exhaustive)

  • Breaking changes:
    • Rename views.videos.ip_view_expiration to views.videos.view_expiration
  • YAML & web admin configs:
    • Add storyboards.enabled config to disable storyboard generation
    • Remove services.twitter.whitelisted: Twitter/X doesn't seem to need this anymore. This means that PeerTube will try to inject the video player in Twitter/X by default instead of using a classic image/description
  • YAML config only:
    • Add open_telemetry.metrics.playback_stats_interval config to customize how often viewers send playback stats to server
    • Add views.videos.watching_interval.{anonymous,users} configs to change how often the web browser sends "is watching" information to the server
    • Add stats.registration_requests.enabled and stats.abuses.enabled configs to hide instance registration/abuse requests public stats (average response time, total registration/abuse requests etc.)
    • Add stats.total_moderators.enabled and stats.total_admins.enabledconfigs to hide total admins/moderators public stats
    • Add object_storage.streaming_playlists.store_live_streams config to not store live stream chunks into object storage (when enabled for streaming playlists)
    • Set open_telemetry.metrics.http_request_duration.enabled to false by default to avoid performance issues on the Prometheus backend due to high metric cardinality

Maintenance

  • Also generate 600x600 and 1500x1500 avatar sizes
  • Also generate 600x100 banner size

Plugins/Themes/Embed API

Features

  • 🎉 Implement user import/export 🎉 #6215
    • This is not a migration tool: data (like channels or videos) is duplicated and not moved from the previous PeerTube instance
    • Export:
      • A ZIP is generated by PeerTube and an email is sent to the user when the archive is ready
      • The archive file contains ActivityPub data for federation compatibility and custom JSON files used by PeerTube import. It also contains video/playlist thumbnail and channel/account avatar/banner files
      • User can include video files in the archive
      • Archive files can be stored in object storage

  • Add ability for uploaders to download and add a video to a playlist on the My videos page using the dropdown button #6008
  • Video views statistics:
    • Count a view after 10 seconds and use a web browser session id to identify a viewer (see IMPORTANT CHANGES section)
    • Add information about the location of the viewer subdivision/region
    • More accurate retention stats where PeerTube doesn't take into account empty views anymore

    • Automatically filter on Local videos in admin

IMPORTANT NOTES

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • /!\ VERY IMPORTANT /!\ We added a unique index on actors usernames to fix some federation bugs. Please check now if you have conflicts:
    • Go inside your database using sudo -u postgres psql peertube_prod and run select "preferredUsername" from actor where "serverId" is null group by "preferredUsername" having count(*) > 1;
    • If you have some results, it seems you have duplicate channels/accounts. For every entry, you'll have to change the preferredUsername of the entry you want (so they are unique). The updated actors could have some federations issues
  • Changed auto_follow_index setting configuration: you now have to use the complete URL in index_url. If you used the default one, you now need to use https://instances.joinpeertube.org/api/v1/instances/hosts. This way, you can also use a direct raw URL (Gitlab, Github, pastebin, etc.) using a simple text format and easily maintain small communities or instance recommendation lists.
  • PeerTube requires NodeJS v10 or v12

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • /!\ VERY IMPORTANT /!\ You need to execute manually a script (can be executed after your upgrade, while your PeerTube instance is running) to create HLS video torrents:
    • cd /var/www/peertube/peertube-latest && sudo -u peertube NODE_CONFIG_DIR=/var/www/peertube/config NODE_ENV=production node dist/scripts/migrations/peertube-2.1.js
  • /!\ VERY IMPORTANT /!\ In the next PeerTube release (v2.2.0), we'll add a unique index on actors usernames to fix some federation bugs. Please check now if you have conflicts using:
    • Go inside your database using sudo -u postgres psql peertube_prod and run select "preferredUsername" from actor where "serverId" is null group by "preferredUsername" having count(*) > 1;
    • If you have some results, it seems you have duplicate channels/accounts. For every entry, you'll have to change the preferredUsername of the entry you want (so they are unique). The updated actors could have some federations issues
  • We now use Buster for the docker image, so the image name changed:
    • production-stretch becomes production-buster
    • v2.x.x-stretch becomes v2.x.x-buster
  • Users cannot create more than 20 channels now to avoid UX and actor name squatting issues
  • We added a warning if the videos directory is the same than the redundancy one in your configuration file: it can create some bugs
