Top 10 Best Alternatives To YouTube

loganruckmanman
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 Ten

1 Vimeo.com Vimeo.com

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 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.

Vimeo shows high quality shows that aren't cluttered

I actualy vote it down: Size upload limit sucks.

2 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

Yay no more viacom

3 ZippCast

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.

Exactly what we need to migrate away from that awful Google crappy YT

4 Google Video

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 WANT TO WATCH FULL LENGTH MOVIES ON THIS TUBE. HEARD THIS IS A GOOD SITE

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

Nice try,Google.(sarcasm)

5 Metacafe

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...

Nice videos

6 Vevo

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.

The best songs are on there, like Baby and one time and Waking up in vegas

7 Twitch

At its inception, Twitch was a novel concept and continued to become increasingly innovative as it evolved. In 2017 it has passed its prime as its chief imperative now is creating as many fees as possible that do not benefit the viewing experience. Add to this the unfortunate advent of "troll streamers." Most evident in English language Arma 3 streams, broadcasters here encourage the chat to donate at the completion of shocking acts. Here you will witness the complete absence of any prowess in video game play superseded by adolescent children rewarding broadcasters for indulging in acts of racism, drug use and assorted vulgarities. Sooner or later Twitch will bear the repercussions of this, perhaps with lawsuits or the unwanted scrutiny of an accusatory news media.

Its low because its only gaming. Nothing else.

Why is this so low? :(

Should be no. 1

18 Veoh

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.

Sometimes I find good old shows here

20 Niconico

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.

Gotta love Niconico, it's better, there's no kids under 13 there, there's no cancerous toy review channels there, and it's a great site. I recommend it as an alternative.

Definitely the best place for vocaloid - Zero116

NICO NICO HAS ALL MY FAVORITE VOCALOID SONGS. I LOVE JAPAN.
