Top 10 Best Alternatives To YouTube

loganruckmanman

July 28, 2015 - 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. Don't agree with the list? Vote for an existing item you think should be ranked higher or if you are a logged in, add a new item for others to vote on or create your own version of this list.

The Top Ten

1
Dailymotion
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. (dailymotion.com/ywfmodels)
Great site. They almost never remove videos
it's ok but it doesn't have all videos I want 2 c
[Newest]Good job, needs more exposure. In the US.

2Vimeo.com
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
[Newest]Its just short films.

3Google Video
I WANT TO WATCH FULL LENGTH MOVIES ON THIS TUBE. HEARD THIS IS A GOOD SITE
I like to watch certain full length movies.
Google owns YouTube, so the two ought to be incredibly similar. YouTube is great, so Google Video follows in that path. Google Play is not AN alternative, it is THE alternative! You also get a lot from a Google account, including access to both of these websites, so this is definitely the only alternative!
[Newest]A slight lag but similar to YouTube in almost every way


4ZippCast
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 instead of full names to represent you on YouTube (1.) changing custom link to your channel without any limits.

They've also improved the performance on their servers compared to more than a year ago, so that tells you that they are improving!

To wrap this up, use it! It's a perfect backup. I hear most of you worrying about YouTube shutting down. I personally don't think that it's anywhere near that soon that Google will shut down YouTube, but if it does, everyone will be cluttered on ZippCast in my guess. So use it while you can! Who knows? You may get famous for being an oldie on there, especially if, somehow, someway YouTube shuts down...
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.
[Newest]Great customization options, great community

5Metacafe
Oops ment to click on daily motion
Unlike other sites from this list, this one works...
Took one look at the home screen and it was a beauty of Internet innovation if I have ever seen one.
[Newest]First non-YouTube website I went to for videos

6Vevo
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

Only music... That's it, so that's why I don't agree. But I do like vevo for music.
Awesome for music videos, but it won't let you upload your own, so it's not a proper alternative
[Newest]I like that it has a lot of good music

7Blip.tv
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.
Home of Nostalgia Critic and many others.


8Xbox Video
But Microsoft got rid of Xbox Video a few days ago...

9Twitch
Why is this so low? :(
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...
[Newest]Live streams on twitch


10YouChew
I Have Two Words For You: YouTube Poops.

The Contenders

11Revver
You had me by porn
Did someone said porn!?!
No time limit, porn, and the fact that you can make money off of it makes it better than YouTube!

[Newest]Has this site shut down?

12Megavideo
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.
[Newest]Megavideo has stopped her services since a couple of years.

13USTREAM.TV

14Veoh
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

No videos from youtube. The whole point of going away from youtube. It is CIA NSA run. Place your videos in a different place!

15ScrewAttack.com
All their videos are on YouTube so(it's not an alternative)

16Newgrounds
In a way, Newgrounds kinda opened up the animation stage for YouTube, giving it lots of promotion.
Newgrounds has to be one of the best websites out there.
The origin point of all the internet famous animators.

17Funny Or Die
Nothing but hilarious videos. And it has an awesome voting system.

18Niconico
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.
Definitely the best place for vocaloid

Zero116

It's the one that has the Vocaloid songs, right?

19Break.com
An awesome site to upload and watch pranks.
BREAK, WATCH IT WHEN you FEEL SAD

IT MAKES you HAPPY
