Top 10 Best Alternatives To YouTube

YouTube is going downhill with its 10 minute time limit, suspending users for no reason, and you can't get your account back. It wouldn't surprise me if it died. So, on that day, here are the sites you can visit.

The Top TenXW

1Vimeo.comTheTopTens Trusted Partner*

Vimeo has been around just as long as YouTube, except it's much better, and much less popularity. They deserve the amount of users YouTube has.

I'm Anti-Google due to their "privacy policy" and all the info they collect from every individual that uses any of their services.
So I choose Vimeo because, although they also collect "certain" information about you (as do most sites) it's not a fraction of what YouTUBE does merely because they form part of Google.

Vimeo shows high quality shows that aren't cluttered

Is this up here because of the add right next to it? 0.0

I show preview videos for a non-nude/nude website and though they were censored to be only non-nude on youtube, I had three complaints and was removed without any recourse. I've been with dailymotion for awhile now and have not had any issues. My content is tame by comparison. (

Great site. They almost never remove videos

it's ok but it doesn't have all videos I want 2 c

My favorite alternative! - IcetailofWishClan

The best You Tube alternative on the Internet... A friendly and helpful community... It still has the classic layout designs, which you can customize... They are developing new features like the ipod phone/touch app... You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter... And the Zippcast team are helpful and listen to its users

If you're one of those YouTube oldies who want to ditch the current layout and want to experience a similar look how it was back in '07, ZippCast is that site.

ZippCast almost feels like using the Web Archive to see what YouTube looked like back then, ZippCast literally uses the YouTube layout from 2007.

Except that you can actually do stuff, unlike looking at a Web Archive; which you cannot register, ZippCast you can register and upload and experience the old layout!

I find it personally the best YouTube alternative if I were to use it as a backup for things such as: False copyright strikes from YouTube, escape predictable "negative" communities affiliating to your videos.

You also get those features back then which YouTube took away from you! I personally hated the fact (top 4.) that YouTube removed (4.) rating with stars, (3.) commenting old-fashioned which allowed filtering the spam to prevent ASCII art, (2.) actually using real USERNAMES ...more

There are growing pains, but the layout is totally customizable, the staff are friendly and approachable and respond, trolls are summarily removed and a great community and hot videos.

Sad that Zippcast got killed off in May 2015 - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

I'm not a huge fan of Google Video, it's just an unpopular low popularity version of YouTube. Shouldn't be on the list. - ROBLOXMan

I like to watch certain full length movies.

Basically, it IS YouTube. Its like the same body holding out video with different hands.

YouTube is by google you know that - Unknownguy

Oops ment to click on daily motion

I have looked for a good YouTube alternative and this ain't it. When I first joined and then went to log back in, I was told the password was wrong. I never received a reset email, like I was supposed to, despite repeated attempts. I finally started a new account. When I log in and try to upload a video it boots me out and I have to log back in. After establishing two accounts and having no luck posting videos, I I gave up and am looking for a new site to most videos.

Unlike other sites from this list, this one works...

Can't share your own videos here, garbage. - Mattwo

I honestly don't understand why everyone hates Vevo. If you don't like it, don't watch videos from there. Nicki Minaj is terrible though. - YourGothicNightmare

In my honest opinion, I love vevo because they actually give me the music that I expect. I don't find anything wrong with but understand people do because it contains censorship. Sometimes, I used it for listening before buying it. - Jihadi_John_Isis

Only music... That's it, so that's why I don't agree. But I do like vevo for music.

It's just music videos that in now way covers the diverse content of YouTube.

Its low because its only gaming. Nothing else.

Very good alternative4 to YouTube if you like to watch gaming like I do.

Twitch are branching out, so not just video games anymore. I like the Creative channel.

Yeah but uploading is really, REALLY hard though. - Cobra-Kraken

Easy to use, lot of features and above all you can make money through your videos, they even take care of distribution... What else do you need

Home of Nostalgia Critic and many others. -

Have a webshow, and need to make profit? Then Blip is the right place to be for that. It is home to some of the best Webshow makers such as Roosterteeth, Animation Lookback, Todd, and the Nostalgia Critic. It's an amazing alternative, and you should check it out for yourself.

Didn't it shut down.

No time limit, porn, and the fact that you can make money off of it makes it better than YouTube! - loganruckmanman

I really love king of the hill it makes me really sweaty when I watch it and I watch it my entire life also I am the banana king god not bless you all

They actually made a series called YouTube Poop. It may be banned from YouTube due to various reasons, including swearing of an unimaginable quality and the name. - PizzaGuy

Me too I like megavideo a lot when I'm watching on going series, and it is easy to use

The video player is kickass. Seriously kickass. - PinkflASHES

I use Megavideo all the time to catch up on my T.V. shows and films. And it is so easy and simple to use there is no struggle to find what you want and is quick and useful.

Megavideo has stopped her services since a couple of years.

You can download videos here by installing their software - ronluna

I voted this because it's bad and wanted to make the person who made it fell good about himself - Art100

A waste of time, they don't accept a link, it's called spam. If you are intro computer and coding, don't use Veoh. I don't even know how is the quality. Their message was very harsh. Forget it.

Sure, if you like having to download proprietary software that contains malware to do most of anything. - Mattwo

In a way, Newgrounds kinda opened up the animation stage for YouTube, giving it lots of promotion.

Great music, more great music, animations, more animations, games, more games, brilliant games, an alien, a tank and a behemoth.

The origin point of all the internet famous animators.

Newgrounds is awesome, geometry dash would never be how it is without it - Unknownguy

19Bing Videos

Yes, I love Google... and Microsoft. Also many other computer companies. Bing for searching, no. Bing for videos, yes. I use YouTube, too, but have better experience with the easy to use Bing Videos. It's simple, so this is a +1 for Microsoft.

Who can compete with Google and YouTube... few... but Microsoft has a chance and if I am going to abandon the leader, I'm going with Microsoft.

Who cares about Google? Microsoft is for professionals.

It seems good I was looking for alternative to youTube I guess I found the one.

Honestly, why is this not on the list. It is not the fact that I find this my favorite player, but that it is INCREDIBLY popular and unknown sites are instead put on this list. NicoNico Douga is a good alternative to Youtube assuming you don't mind the majority of the content to be in Japanese. The offer some interesting things that are 100% unique. They even offer live broadcasting for the masses. Sure you have to pay for HD or to broadcast you own show with a membership, but overall the "360p" quality is better than Youtube's and at least the majority of their services are free. Even some of the manga browsing is free.

I go here for my Vocaloid songs because YouTube red takes them off. The quality is better, you gotta love Niconico

Definitely the best place for vocaloid - Zero116

This is where I get all my music! Great site!
