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.

So why doesn't Trump exclude YouTube and just post to Rumble?

It would be a huge boost for Rumble.

YouTube fined 100,000 Euro after German court rejects its “misinformation” excuse for deleting anti-lockdown protest video
YouTube ignored an order to reinstate the video and so was fined.

Oh come on, 100,000 Euros is nothing. It's so close to zero for YouTube it's not even a fine at all. It's a free pass to do it again.

And lo and behold, YouTube keeps censoring anything and anyone opposed to the overwhelming evil that corporate liberals do to the working class:

YouTube has a long list of things its users are not allowed to utter on the platform, often not even as part of a debate among scientists and doctors, as YouTube believes these things pose "a serious risk of egregious harm."

This includes recommending Ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine for Covid treatment (even though critics of the use of these drugs speak about their inefficacy rather than potential harm), and making claims that Covid vaccines can make people ill. Contradicting local health authorities or the WHO is also prohibited, where it comes to treatment, prevention, transmission, or orders of restrictive measures such as mask wearing and social distancing.

Congress Escalates Pressure on Tech Giants to Censor More, Threatening the First Amendment
In their zeal for control over online speech, House Democrats are getting closer and closer to the constitutional line, if they have not already crossed it.

For the third time in less than five months, the U.S. Congress has summoned the CEOs of social media companies to appear before them, with the explicit intent to pressure and coerce them to censor more content from their platforms. On March 25, the House Energy and Commerce Committee will interrogate Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, Facebooks’s Mark Zuckerberg and Google’s Sundar Pichai at a hearing which the Committee announced will focus “on misinformation and disinformation plaguing online platforms.”

The Committee’s Chair, Rep. Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ), and the two Chairs of the Subcommittees holding the hearings, Mike Doyle (D-PA) and Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), said in a joint statement that the impetus was “falsehoods about the COVID-19 vaccine” and “debunked claims of election fraud.”

We need an alternative to Twitter as well.

Do we??

I've regarded Twitter as nothing more than a site for celebrity twats to get adoration from dummies.

I've NEVER understood Twitter.

You realize this is fine - don't you?

Now, we can identify enemies of our nation. They are now overt.

I would argue this has been a decades long struggle. We knew something was wrong, but we couldn't be certain what was wrong. We created the internet, we compiled minds and concepts and ideas. We talked and over time: this became a problem for the people that was making it wrong. It's taken decades. Now we can see what is wrong, who is doing it, and just how morally bankrupt they are.

I've several times seen that I'm 1 or 2 decades ahead in awareness though. It's going to take some time for the masses to realize we live in an entirely propagandized society. Propaganda is the only thing keeping this corrupt system running. We do indeed have a good foundation of a nation, but it's been perverted. The foundations of this nation are the best in the world. I'm sure it can be improved, but our nation has the best foundation of any nation, ever in recorded history.

Too bad I'm 50, I'd be curious about the outcome in 200 years. I still think that we are ultimately improving the world despite all efforts to make it worse by our corrupt ruling oligarchy. All I've seen in my lifetime is progress. I'm fairly confident that will continue, despite the corruption.

Cup half full or half empty.

The number of Truly Aware People is very high given the full court Media/Social Media Press and Censorship.

Certainly more than the necessary 5-15% of the adult population normally required for final arguments.

I'd guess something between 1/3 and 1/2 of the country knows something is seriously wrong.

I do believe that the pandemic, the stolen election, etc. were done prematurely under pressure rather than something "they" wanted to do at that particular time.

Really thinking the Underground Resistance is a good phase to enter, with Chalking/Poster Campaigns and maybe some flyers.

We need some kind of easily drawn mascot, like "Kilroy was Here" so we can mark territory all over, and every basic person or technocrat gets upset when they drive past a construction wall that there are people who don't believe their BS, and obviously more than just a "Handful of Extremists"

This is true.

Any open source software with a "code of conduct" for developers is no longer trustworthy software unless you literally read all the code yourself, which is difficult.

YouTube To Ban All Videos Except The One Showing Stephen Colbert Dancing With People Dressed As Vaccines

SAN BRUNO, CA—In an effort to prevent the spread of anti-vax misinformation, YouTube has announced that all videos that have ever been uploaded to their platform will be removed, except that one video that shows Steven Colbert dancing with people dressed as vaccines.

"We feel this is the responsible thing to do with our platform," said CEO Susan Wojcicki. "People can now visit YouTube and visit the Stephen Colbert 'Vax-Scene' video as many times as they want! Isn't that great! What a cute and hilarious video! We hope this will encourage many more people to get vaccinated."

People who visit the website will have the option of watching that video or leaving the site. It will be offered in high definition, in addition to having subtitles.

YouTube made the update to the site this morning. At the time of this writing, the video still has no views.

Why do you think they have banned you?

All my comments are deleted on youtube, because I'm a political dissident. I was doing evil things like getting people to think maybe they've been deceived or that something that is a commonly held belief is false.

Rumble has eons of a way to go, they don't have one single live stream of any important events. Never ever, just no!
That is mother fucking suspect as FUCK!

This is 2021 God damn it! And they keep trying to hint that they are a Youtube replacement.

I don't know about you guys, but watching cute cat videos is the last fucking thing I do on Youtube.

That being said, Youtube has gone so far down the tubes, Youtube is no longer Youtube not in any meaningful way.

I can no longer kill my boredom by watching videos in organic suggested videos.

I am also finding the pool of videos to look at is getting puny and microscopic compared to what they were. Even at my friends house watching Youtube on his 85 inch smart tv. I was noticing yesterday, he's seeing the same videos as I am. Though we normally search for different shit, and watch totally different videos. Then why is the home screen, and browsing menu of suggested videos 80% of the same shit I see on my Smart TV inside, the Computer in my office, and the laptop I also use? I watch different content on those as well. All showing the same suggested content.

It's a fucking shame about Rumble is just honey trap for patriots to kid themselves and believe it's a free speech platform. But the CIA and FBI watchers are just waiting for some fool to upload a video threatening the man and the system, as they grow tired of the tyranny That's all Rumble is, don't fool yourselves. if they were real, they would be everything Youtube isn't right now. Youtube isn't even Youtube anymore and still Rumble sucks worse than Youtube.

Oh and as for your awesome wonderful Duck Duck Go, everyone loves to have mental intercourse with, can you explain to me, why you have never EVER seen one fucking Rumble video in a DDG search result? I mean we can understand why not on Google, as it competes with YT. But what's DDG's excuse? Especially when people talk about alternative Censor free tech. One would think they would have a partnership and promote each other.

YMMV, don't believe the hype.

Re Youtube has seen far better days.

I think the very thing that is and will continue killing off Youtube. Is before they had all of the conservative and right leaning content for them push back against, and try to paint as racists. The commies, jerkoffs and all around fuckfaces over at Youtube, were so consumed watching what Conservative content creators may or may not say, that they left the rest of the site wide open. People were able to get a lot of content past the YT censors. Youtubbers would post Movies with a different tittle, and anomalies in the soundtrack, and a few cut scenes. It would be enough that Youtubes Copyright AI detection wouldn't pick it up. I've seen movies that were in the theaters for less than a week. But after they kicked off the Conservatives, they had the full resources to police the content better. Well it turns out, almost 80% of their content all these years violated Copyright laws in one way or another, so they are all gone. The rest of the shit they didn't kick off YT, they shadow banned it. So the only way you'll ever find it, is if you know what you're searching for and actually searched for it. It will never come up in a related obscure search. Unless you search title and creator of the video.

If they keep going like this, YT will go the way AOL. Once a resource the world thought they could never do without, done in by their own stupidity.

Youtube and Google had the opportunity to entirely decimate the media complex entirely, utterly destroying it. Making CNN, CBS, NY Times, you name it - obsolete, as well as all television stations.

Yeah, they got bought off - which was a stupid thing to do. Now, they are going to go the way of CNN, CBS, NY Times, you name it.

Sure, companies will keep getting bought off, but it gets easier and easier and easier to make a search engine, and a display platform. What a few engineers can do today, took hundreds, if not thousands of engineers to do 20 years ago.

If Rumble gets bought out, they will be as relevant as Yahoo! is today within a few years, if not faster.

You can keep bribing people to prevent them from giving the public what the public wants, but eventually, you are going to get a few dozen people who are like "I'm already rich, fuck it. I wouldn't know what to do with an extra 20 billion dollars anyhow".

All people want is voluntary interaction. Youtube did the hard work of finding out what people wanted, then they were bribed to stop giving them that. All Rumble is doing is what Youtube USED to do, minute 100's of thousands of hours of market research. If Rumble starts to engage in censorship (well, unjustified censorship) they won't last long. They'll be abandoned. Small content creators no longer bother with Youtube much that I've noticed. They've largely realized it's a rigged game, so they don't even bother trying there.

Would the new search engine require building and manning a server farm? You would need something to handle thousands of requests and quickly process results.
