What is the best non youtube video sharing platform? I have a simple github pages site that needs to have a few videos embedded. Most platforms I see charge about $5 per month for the "pro" tier which I would probably need due to file sizes in excess of a gigabyte. In my head, this is not worth it, as I could just spin up a VPS for cheaper. Thoughts?

Any advice or resources for sandboxing, limiting or otherwise fucking with test proctor software? As a student, I am required to install spyware, obviously, I am not a fan of that. My first instinct is to use a VM. Is there any way I can manually reduce my webcam quality in Linux? Any other ideas?

I am looking for a good platform to host my short films and other video projects. I avoid google, so youtube is out. Vimeo is expensive for what it is and most peertube instances limit users to 500MB/day or are filled with alt-right bs. Any suggestions for either other platforms or good instances with high upload limits?
