can you add the feature to FV Player so it can play videos from bitchute?
Considering Article 13 of the new EU Law, we need this.
We probably won’t be able to reliably use you etc.
It’s not just Bitchute, but https://bit.tube used the same decentralised technology. It’s ipfs video streaming I believe.
Please please please incorporate this, it would also mean people wouldn’t have to use Vimeo either and can save costs.
Decentralised IPFS (Bitchute/Bitube) is the silver bullet.
REAL.video has to deal will huge transcoding/bandwidth costs.
I like the platform, but an IPFS solution is much more cost-effective and censorship-resistant.
Please please please implement this.. I’ll even post a free ad for FVplayer on my youtube channel for you guys!
when I input the bitchute video address into fv player
I get error message:
“flash: Video file not found”
I’d like to support Bitchute as we support YouTube. YouTube becomes more stifling and censored every day to content creators. FV Player is a politically agnostic tool.
There’s no API right now for Bitchute as far as I can tell. We may be able to make Bitchute embedding possible anyway. We’ll take a look as soon as we can, probably next week.
we are fixing some last editing issues currently.
If you have a test site where you would like to test our new Bitchute integration, you can reinstall FV Player from this ZIP file: https://github.com/foliovision/fv-wordpress-flowplayer/archive/134-bitchute-support.zip
To do that you will have to first deactivate and delete the current FV Player plugin you are using. WordPress will warn you that you might loose settings and data, but it’s not the case with our plugin, no settings now videos will be lost. Or you can just replace the plugin files via FTP.
Then you can use URL of Bitchute video like https://www.bitchute.com/video/xFqd1XKX2fo/ with FV Player and it will use that video MP4 file along with the splash screen.
Really glad to here about Bitchute. One thing about Bitchute though is it’s currently limited to 360p.
Have you looked into integrating LBRY.tv as it seems to be getting a lot of traction lately.
It supports high res video, and is ‘very’ decentralized and as a platform seems to be growing quickly. I like the fact I can ‘seed’ or host my own content via the app.
I can already use their player using iframes, but you guys make the best player out-there imo, so would love to see you integrate them also.
I tested it out, it worked at first on Brave until I an edited the post and changed a video link (changed link to different Bitchute video) but now says video cannot be found. Still seems to be working on Dissenter but never worked on Safari.
Below is a link to the test post.
And below a video showing the issues I had.
I mean is that video has sharing disabled on Bitchute. I checked a couple and haven’t notice any message like that, so I wonder what makes that video not work.
let us know if you run into any video which won’t work, as rhys did report issues with one of the videos.
are you sure that video is entirely public? Is it one of your uploads?
I see it works in Dissenter – that browser is sending invalid HTTP Referrer header. Bitchute is checking that header on that video, so if it’s loading from your website it won’t play as standard browsers do set HTTP Referrer properly.
Yes it’s entirely public.. below is a video of the settings.
