There's a new #PeerTube instance run by @deadsuperhero called VidCommons which is dedicated entirely to #CreativeCommons and #PublicDomain works:

vidcommons.org

You can also follow its channels on here:

@documentaries

@shows

It's just started so the selection is still limited, but it's gradually building up.

There's also a new tracker-free website run by @kinosocial which has selected CC/PD films from PeerTube and Archive.org:

My first experience setting up a server for an open source project was setting up Wallabag (Pocket, Instapaper alternative). The quality of that project inspired me to find other projects to setup and I eventually set up this Mastodon server. I wrote up a little tutorial if any one else is interested in setting up Wallabag
