I spent some time last weekend working on an AGPLv3 video player in
Angular[1]. It doesn't require any server side, but it does display much
of the metadata in the metadata archive. This seems more achievable than
a peertube instance to me, as peertube wants to store all the videos
which we've already put online somewhere in its own private storage
system, which to me seems like a waste of space and bandwidth.

I'm hoping this might be useful somewhere down the road, but it still
needs a few features to be implemented to be really handy; notably, it
currently doesn't have an angular routing module, which means that it
kinda sorta breaks the back button, and you can't deeplink to a
particular video.

<https://angular.io/>. Unfortunately, it's not in Debian yet, because
JavaScript, but once the dependencies are packaged, I might fix that.

To the thief who stole my anti-depressants: I hope you're happy
