YouTube alternative Rumble announced the testing of its first ever live stream – one of the features that are increasingly in demand among both mainstream and alternative platforms’ userbases.

Rumble – that says it is already serving over 3 million creators, and is independently owned without being beholden to venture capitalists or large companies – first announced it would be live streaming former President Donald Trump’s address at the Conservative Political Action Conference 2021 event, dubbed, “America Uncanceled.”

Rumble reported that a record number of people had tuned in to watch the livestream, specifying that the numbers were close to 100,000 concurrent users and approaching over 500,000 total viewers, and then announcing, “We did it and flawlessly. Rumble is ready for more.”

The reaction from commenters was mostly positive, reporting a smooth viewing experience, as well as praising the platform for incorporating closed captions for hearing impaired users.

And while it’s still early days for live streaming on Rumble, it’s no surprise this Canada-based alternative video hosting service – that is supported and widely used by conservatives and libertarians in the turbulent and censorship-laden post-election period – has decided to start testing and implementing this feature.

Namely, live streaming, although by no means a new feature on social networks, has recently seen a huge growth in popularity, particularly with the lockdowns, even giving rise to a new class of livestream-only apps like Clubhouse, along with established, Big Tech ones like Amazon’s Twitch and Google’s YouTube.

The way the pandemic and lockdowns have helped live streaming gain in popularity is human nature, as people isolated in their homes for months seek a sense of communication that is most similar to actual human contact and community.

Rumble, backed by political commentator Dan Bongino, might not be wrong to hitch its wagon to the live streaming trend, because it is still a largely untapped part of the video hosting market and is only projected to grow, both among users and marketers.

Ensuring growth among those categories is of key importance for Big Tech alternatives looking to become viable competitors.

Rumble is now seeking creators who live stream gaming, crypto, stocks, lifestyle, and sports.

Every fucking time I see a Rumble video in a Conservative news story, the fucking view window is locked to a tiny video I can't fucking see.


@Tenpoundbass - you're just missing something here:



Click play first by clicking the center of the window. At the bottom of the window, on the lower right, you will see a little window and "Rumble" appear. If you click the window, it goes full screen, if you click "Rumble" it takes you to the original site where it was posted.

Youtube is a dead man walking. I'm telling you - within 5 years, it will be about as popular as MySpace. Remember that?

Well try that at The Gateway Pundit, or Bretibart those options are disabled.

I'm not a fan of YouTube, but if you're going to make a Youtube replacement, at least make desired content easy to find.

Youtube was the master of knowing what you want to see, based on what you are watching. They were until the last 4 years or so, then they destroyed that algorithm, and replaced it with a Propaganda injection algorithm.

It is easy to find.

Stop using Google. I don't. Google is 5 miles from my place.

It's not hard to duplicate that. Netflix does this. In fact, I'd say IMDB did this first. It matched what you gave positive reviews for with other people who had similar points of view on something they also saw. It was just doing correlation. If person A like a,b,c,d,e,f and g and person B liked a,b,d,f,h,j,m and n - both were given suggestions for what didn't overlap.

It's not hard to do.

BUT you need to log in for it work. Have you noticed cookies now ask for permission (constantly) - that's to limit competition. Before it was under the hood and using cookies to track your viewing habits. Can do that anymore.. That's regulation for ya!

“Ukraine on Fire,” a 2016 documentary that details historical conflicts in the country, such as the 2004 Orange Revolution and the 2014 overthrow of the Ukrainian government, has been banned by YouTube for violating the tech giant’s “violent or graphic content policy.” ...

Lopatonok added that he plans to open the rights to another of his documentaries, “Revealing Ukraine,” and make it available as a direct download on Vimeo.

Additionally, Lopatonok created a Rumble account and uploaded a copy of Ukraine on Fire.

“We are fighting back against #YouTube #censorship,” Lopatonok tweeted. “Just uploaded our with @TheOliverStone
documentary @UkraineOnFire on #rumble…Please share it!”

Numerous YouTube and Rumble users have posted copies of Ukraine on Fire to YouTube and Rumble since Lopatonok opened the rights to the public. Copies of the documentary have also been uploaded to the free speech video sharing platforms Odysee and BitChute.

Netflix is not as effective as Youtube's video algorithms were.
Netflix really doesn't have lot of content to begin with, nowhere near the amount that youtube had.

I say past tense, as they suck balls now, but at least they have more content creators.

I'm watching it now, and it's pretty good. Learning lots of bits I didn't know.

The Ukraine definitely has a Nazi past and present. This is probably why YouTube censored the movie.

You tube is now banning Oliver Stone, the guy who worked on everything from Conan (the Original) and Platoon to JFK.
