This #Newpipe update makes it really easy to watch and discover #peertube videos.
I have a question, it states that it doesn't uses P2P to stream the videos, so wouldn't it put pressure on the servers when we watch videos using Newpipe?

@redstarfish yes, it will only stream from the server of origin of the video. It won't download from other servers helping with hosting copies of the video, nor from regular peers. And of course it won't share back chunks of the video to other peers.

Arguably, there are few libraries helping with P2P playback for Android platforms. That would be a lot of work to develop for the folks of NewPipe.
