Peertube has scripts that allows you to upload a complete YouTube-Channel to a desired peertube account.
That way, you can also automatically mirror YouTube-Channels to a PeerTube Channel, from e.g. your laptop.
You don't have to own the instance, you just need an account on that instance.

For simple mirroring https://github.com/mister-monster/YouTube2PeerTube works great and requires fewer dependencies.
I have at the moment the permission of, let me count, 5 different youtube channel/content creators (popular ones who publish good content), so i think asking persons is much more successful than more content creators.
One of those Accounts is https://peertube.ch/video-channels/gabyweber_channel/videos - gaby weber seemed really interested in an youtube alternative.
But yes, i think a stigma of piracy wouldn't be that good.
