disgruntled user's point of view 

I must be missing something here after all. I'd like to mark this video as a favorite, but I'm just not ready to make accounts on every instance.
And as an incompetent grumble: search, search, and search again, global. Every instance stores the video(!) after all can't it store, update and respond to queries on a small part of the global index?
But then again, I don't understand any of this:)

You should be able ― I mean, I've done it on toobnix! ― to log in "remotely" with your SDF Mastodon account to do that.

@publius Could it be because tubnix is the same host as sdf.org?
I wonder if you can approve the address of this clip or vice versa.
I think I'm dumb after all :)

If I click on the "Subscribe" button, I get a drop-down with an option "Subscribe with a Remote Account", with a space for a username such as "yrabbit@mastodon.sdf.org", accompanied by a "Remote Subscribe" button.

I don't get the same prompt with the voting buttons, but I strongly suspect that, if you were to go through the "remote subscribe" process, you would be logged in in the sense required to use them. There should be another way to do it…

OK, here's how you do it.

Go to the comment box. If you start to type, you will get a dialog prompting you to "remote interact" or "login to comment". You want to put your username "yrabbit@mastodon.sdf.org" in the box, & use the "Remote Interact" button, NOT the "Login to Comment" button. Then you'll get a pop-up warning ― open the pop-up, & you'll see the video within the SDF Mastodon interface & be able to favorite it.

@publius Oh, that's how you do it! I see.

It could definitely be more transparent!

@yrabbit Hubzilla/Zap solve this in their Zot protocol using OpenWebAuth (earlier called magic auth). Let us port PeerTube from ActivityPub to Zot!
