LBRY, pronounced “Library”, is a blockchain project that aims to create a decentralized web hosting solution for video, audio, and other media. All users who download the desktop client basically help host parts of the LBRY network, while anyone can also download almost anything on the service using the same application.

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