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

Vimeo changed the way they report stats, I can no longer use it unfortunately. I need immediate feedback for individual videos, not two day old info. Looking for alternatives if anyone has a suggestion.

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

I love daily motion! Its really easy to watch your favorite series online! - funnyuser

3Google Video

I like to watch certain full length movies.

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 don't see anything special about Google Video. It's literally just Google Images or anything like it, except instead of pictures, it's videos.

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.

Everything about Zippcast Functionality is great... it's their inconsiderate, immature and unappreciative members who believe their crap doesn't stink that truly ruins the site. I wouldn't bother wasting your time signing up on Zippcast.

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.

Took one look at the home screen and it was a beauty of Internet innovation if I have ever seen one.

Laugh out loud "youtube is dying, " metacafe is basically a youtube reincarnation. They were made 6 years ago, and are this big so fast... Youtube has been the standard and staple quality of any video sharing site

First non-YouTube website I went to for videos

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.

Doesn't even have Pink Floyd. Not much of a music site.

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

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.

Bought by Maker studios and shut down august 20th 2015
Maker Studios is owned by Disney. Works directly with and makes content for YouTube.

Home of Nostalgia Critic and many others. -

Its low because its only gaming. Nothing else.

Great for live events. YouTube tries to bring live events to the site... And has been sucking at those attempts.

Twitch is great for watching live videos, but I hate that you can't rewind...

The best site for live streams - WhenWorldsCollide02

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

Honestly, pornography in general and in many forms from around the world is for the weak Ill minded people who can't seek for a real relationship but to rot in the room and constantly masturbate. It's what's ruining love and human livesdisgusting. Anyone who likes it is therefore pathetic and has a unrealistic excuse to live. Also, pornography is not benefiting the world. #HelpTheHumanRace.

Whoever is thumbing me down is an idiotic human vermin that fears the truth. " I never did give them hell. I just told the truth, and they thought it was hell" -Harry S. Truman. - Jihadi_John_Isis

This is a site for horny teens that are desperate for attention - JaysTop10List

All of you are wrong on the head

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.

I Have Two Words For You: YouTube Poops. - imacg4

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

YouTube doesn't poop political fact

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.

Very good by creators of Castle Crashers

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.

17Bing 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.

18Funny Or Die

Nothing but hilarious videos. And it has an awesome voting system.

Most of the videos are funny, and the voting system is very effective. You can vote for videos you find FUNNY, and vote for videos you dislike to DIE.

Nothing except lame videos that are played out.

Some ARE funny. And some must die, LOL. I love that site. - Jihadi_John_Isis
