@gwenn Hey, funkwhale is currently offered.

Plans are:
Small - 1 celery worker, 1 web thread, 50GB for $8USD/mo
Medium - 2 celery workers, 2 web, 100GB for $16USD/mo
Large - 4cw & 4web, 200GB $29USD/mo
Giant - 6cw & 6web 400GB $39USD/mo

Web threads are what respond to requests from your web browser, and celery workers are what handle background tasks such as federation. The more you have of both the faster your instance is.

Audio federation from to seem to work 🎉

And by work I mean: propely. Not with a bunch of hacks just to showcase it, like I did in december.

So I've included a full example in the video, in which you see me:

1. Creating a channel on (the development server with the latest channels-related code,
2. Copy the channel username from the UI
3. Paste the username in's search bar
4. Browse the corresponding profile in (with the channel cover and description)
4. Follow the channel in Mastodon
5. Publish two tracks in the channel, in Funkwhale's UI
6. Observe the corresponding tracks being displayed in Mastodon, with proper title and hashtags
7. After a while (there's a small delay in Mastodon), you can see the embedded player to listen to the tracks directly in Mastodon

Levels of excitement are rising!

🎶 🎶 Gonna start a revolution from my instance,
Coz <insert name> stood in my way with such insistence;
Look outside the internet's on fire.

Stand up now to big tech's disgrace,
Take your data off myspace,
Coz you weren't ever gonna own it anywaa-aay 🎶 🎶

Friendly reminder that we use A LOT of pretty cool open-source/free software projects and tools for Funkwhale (both the app itself and our collective).

If you cannot support us directly, supporting these projects is a good way to help us on the long run!
