What is a Lewdtuber?

What is IPFS?

Interplanetary File System (IPFS) is a new-ish technology which gives a unique address to every file. This address is called a Content ID, or CID for short. A CID can be used to request the file from the IPFS network.

IPFS is a distributed, decentralized protocol with no central point of failure. IPFS provider nodes can come and go, providing file serving capacity to the network. As long as there is at least one node pinning the content you want, you can download it.

There are a few ways to use IPFS, each with their own tradeoffs. Firstly, you can use a public gateway. IPFS public gateways can be overloaded and unreliable at times, but it's simple to use. All you have to do is visit a gateway URL containing the CID. One such example is

The next way to use IPFS consists of running IPFS Desktop on your computer. A local IPFS node runs for as long as IPFS Desktop is active, and you can query this node for the content you want. This setup works best with IPFS Companion, or a web browser that natively supports IPFS, such as Brave browser.

My browser says the video is not reachable

You may get an error when clicking on a video link. Errors such as DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

This is a DNS server error that occurs when a web browser isn't able to translate the domain name into an IP address.

If this happens, using a different DNS server can fix it. There are many gratis services to choose from, including Cloudflare DNS or Google DNS.

Often, using a DNS server other than the one provided to you by your ISP can improve your internet browsing experience for all websites.

The IPFS videos are slow! I can't even watch it!

Bandwidth is prohibitively expensive, so that's the free-to-play experience at the moment. (Patrons get access to CDN which is much faster.)

If the video isn't loading fast enough to stream, you can download the entire video then playback later on your device.

Can I download the video?

Yes! The recommended way is to use either IPFS Desktop or ipget.

ipget example is as follows.

ipget --progress -o projektmelody-chaturbate-2023-12-03.mp4 bafybeiejms45zzonfe7ndr3mp4vmrqrg3btgmuche3xkeq5b77uauuaxkm

There's a cool new Lewd Vtuber who streams on CB. Will you archive their vods?

Yes. Futureporn aims to become the galaxy's best VTuber hentai site.

How can I help?

Bandwidth and rental fees are expensive, so Futureporn needs financial assistance to keep servers online and videos streaming.

Patrons gain access to perks like our video Content Delivery Network (CDN), and optional shoutouts on the patrons page.

Additionally, help is needed populating our archive with vods from past lewdtuber streams.
