LBRY, pronounced “Library,” is a blockchain project that’s aiming to build a decentralized web hosting solution for video, audio, and other media. All users who download the desktop client essentially help host parts of the LBRY network while anyone can also upload almost anything to the service by using the same app.

Once files have been uploaded to the LBRY blockchain, they can be accessed within the LBRY app or by using an alternative interface such as Odysee which is basically a YouTube rival that focuses primarily on LBRY-hosted videos.
