About

(The video above is hosted on YouTube because Patreon doesn't like embedding video from other video sites apparently.  You can watch the original video directly on Pony.Tube.)

What is Pony.Tube?

Pony.Tube is a PeerTube-enabled video streaming platform using P2P (Pony-to-Pony) technology to deliver the latest pony videos directly to you.

Why we created this instance

Pony.Tube is a video sharing site that seeks to provide a haven for pony content that you may have issues uploading on larger sites like YouTube or you fear may be taken down for any reason. We seek to be entirely free of cost and free of ads.

Why do you need to ask for money?

This little experiment has proven to be  very expensive.  My costs for hosting have risen dramatically as more and more users find and begin to enjoy the site.  Storing videos and streaming them is not cheap at all.

How much does it cost exactly?

I run a few web sites using AWS.  Prior to starting up Pony.Tube, I was spending about $100 a month on these sites.  But I know my total AWS bill a few months ago was about $300.  As of June 2020, that has increased to nearly $500 a month.  So I estimate Pony.Tube is about $400 or so of that total.

If I get some response to this Patreon, I will post the most detailed bills possible to show how the money is being spent.

In the highly unlikely event that the money raised here exceeds what is needed to run this site, I will donate any excess to a horse rescue facility.  If that were to ever happen, I'll make sure everyone is aware of what charity is chosen.
Goals
$0 of $125 per month
At this point, about 1/4 of the site will be paid for by somewhere other than my own pocket.
