YouTube forcing ads? Thoughts on PeerTube and the alternatives

My PeerTube channel: https://sahre.tube/accounts/chriswere YouTube will now show ads on all videos even if creators don’t want them: https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnkoetsier/2020/11/18/youtube-will-now-show-ads-on-all-videos-even-if-creators-dont-want-them #PeerTube is a free and open-source, decentralized, federated video platform powered by #ActivityPub and WebTorrent, that uses peer-to-peer technology to reduce load on individual servers when viewing videos. Started in 2015 by a programmer known as Chocobozzz, development of PeerTube is now supported by the French non-profit Framasoft. The aim is to provide an alternative to centralized platforms such as #YouTube, Vimeo, and Dailymotion.

Some nice tips/app picks on the recent Linux Unplugged podcast. I'm checking out profile-sync-daemon. Also on the list - video trimmer, firefox-adwaita-theme and also considering moving ~/bin to ~/.local/bin

I realise this is very motherboard specific, but has anyone had any luck with modifying bios settings from a running OS before? As a blind individual who needs a screen reader, not being able to access the bios is very annoying, requiring sighted assistance.

A high performance X11 animated wallpaper setter

I remember searching for something like this after seeing live wallpapers on Android

Experience so far:

Good build quality.
Battery was not charged initially. Made the mistake of connecting to a charger immediately! Should have removed the plastic film first between the battery and contacts.
There was a note in the user guide, which I noticed only later.
