I'm wondering if there is a way of "donating" part of my upload bandwidth, that I rarely need, to services like or others. Can I install an instance on my server and "mirror" other instances or help them in any other way to deliver content via my upload?


Well, yes!
You can set up a instance for example, and let is seed the videos for instances of your choosing.

I recommend Yunohost for the PT installation (i use it for my instance)
It makes the installation process very easy.

@rollin_rob hmm the simplest one should be, you can download their desktop app, and after watching/downloading video you also host it.
