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 Ten
1 Vimeo is an ad-free open video platform that is headquartered in New York City. The company provides creators with tools and technology to host, distribute and monetize videos.

In short, the technical video viewing quality of Vimeo is better especially if you don't have a good connection. Vimeo also allows downloading of videos while YouTube doesn't even give it as an option (for those uploading their videos). In 2015, this is essentially the same as taking people's content hostage and is nothing short of the evil that Google is supposedly not supposed to be. If people were smart and thinking about the future of the Internet, they would simply boycott YouTube and opt for services like Vimeo.

Though I personally believe this site needs a new coat of paint and maybe a new design overall, it's a good alternative to YouTube. The problem is that it isn't as popular, meaning no popular content creators to boost this site's visit rates.

YouTube used to be good, until Google bought it and injected its business into it...

Vimeo, definitely. One of my friends uses Vimeo, and he found it more convenient than YouTube and deleted his account. It's really high quality. It's amazing what it can do compared to YouTube by itself. YouTube would be terrible with Google, and in some ways Google has made it worse. You can't get anywhere posting videos without Copyrights and co. and then when your Videos blocked in different countries. There is a lot less of this on Vimeo.

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.

2 Dailymotion Dailymotion is a video-sharing technology platform. It is primarily owned by Vivendi. North American launch partners include BBC News, VICE, Bloomberg, Hearst Digital Media, and more.

Dailymotion is pretty good because they don't seem to be harsh on users who upload coypwrighted videos. I managed to watch full episodes of Spongebob as well as Louis Theroux's docuseries. Better than Youtube to say the least.

Dailymotion is the best! I think it's better than YouTube, but I still have to use YouTube for the Minecraft channels. I don't recognize most of the websites here! I don't understand how hulu is in the top ten, let alone how it's so far above netflix. I would vote for netflix or hulu, but they don't count as an alternative to me. They're for shows and movies. YouTube and dailymotion are for all kinds of videos!

It's best to go with stability. Keep away from the likes of Zippcast and it's twisted sister social site Vidigo social, where pm's are read, and the staff are hackers and argue non stop. The word is spreading that these two sites are ran by homo criminals who hack your accounts on a daily basis to send false pms to people or read everything your wrote in private and the main owner, some old dude likes to hang around children.
DM gets my vote because the owners don't invade your privacy and it's not going anywhere

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.

3 Vevo

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.

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.

Vevo are just people who help make brilliant music videos (apart from people like Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, etc.) people need to respect them a bit more for doing this.

I love music my next door neighbours always complain that I have I have my music to loud. like they should live a little and let me enjoy the rest of my fun.

4 Metacafe

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 gave up and am looking for a new site to most videos.

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

This site should not be so high up. Like one user said I ended up making a second account for getting kicked out of my first account.

5 Twitch

Twitch is one of the best streaming websites that makes sure you're not a robot. Play good games like Fortnite, Minecraft, Rocket League, etc. (I think) and they can get you free wins if you friend them. In conclusion, they're the best, except when they just don't die in Fortnite because they go to tryhard mode. This should be on the most annoying things I know, but this is twitch. This reminds me of this kid on the bus named Dacoda and he was a bully, so one day, he threw me out of the seats and I got angry and I said nobody messes with spider bee my Fortnite name and I took him out of that seat and did a nice clean loud slap. Sorry, out of topic, like my character does. Sorry 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.

Twitch is nothing more than girls gyrating their butts and "accidental" nip slips despite their TOS stating this is not allowed. They rule enforcement is spotty and very selective. I do not encourage children watch or post anything on Twitch it is no longer a place just for gamers to post videos, it's a softcore porn site where many girls stream themselves bending over in clothing that reveals everything, fully nude body painting, sexual talk with viewers all to solicit money from said viewer. This amounts to nothing more than prostitution and should be banned...but Twitch won't.

Nope. It's full of Twitch Thots like Alinity and Pokimane, and if you don't make big bucks for them, you will get banned for the smallest of things but Twitch doesn't give a damn about Alinity abusing her cats. If you wanna get ignored & get banned for the smallest of things, then Twitch is the site for you!

6 Revver

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.

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

This is way better than Wait Watchers, I lost 20 pounds in jizz weight, my right hand has never been pushed this much over its limits, bravo, I applaud to you.

You had me by porn

7 Xbox Video

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

Awesome its blocked

Really... 'twas the worst

But you can make exbox video by yourself

8 Funny Or Die

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 but hilarious videos. And it has an awesome voting system.

Nothing except lame videos that are played out.

9 Newgrounds Newgrounds is an American entertainment and social media website and company. Founded on July 6, 1995, by Tom Fulp, the site presently hosts games, movies, audio and artwork in four respective hubs, or Portals.

This site brings back so many memories! I used to go there and watch all their spoof videos and play amateur flash games before YouTube.
Did you know that Newgrounds is named after 'neo geo'?

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

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

This site is legitimately the closest YouTube has to actual competition. And that's just sad.

10 Bing 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.

I trust this way more than going on youtube, even if only because google doesn't own it.

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

The Newcomers

? Gab TV
The Contenders

I love creating fake accounts just so I can interact with the others when there are WWE streams lol good times.

Cool and easy to use

Now paid and they want a lot more. Use picarto!

Mattwo shut up

12 Bitchute

I love the tip and pledge functionality to monetizing videos... This is extremely innovative and I think it could catch on very quickly... If a site has ad-sense, it's essentially controlled by Google (YouTube) and not a true YouTube alternative... The whole point in getting away from YouTube is that content creators are unfairly getting their ad-sense accounts pulled for life... I think I'm going to make a home here...

Don't have much experience with other Youtube alternatives but I've uploaded a few videos without any problems. My only criticism would be that the search system doesn't seem as good as Youtubes. Also there seems to be a lack of non-political content but hopefully that will change if it gets more popular

The only platform that is truly censorship free and actually acts as a YouTube alternative.

Is a great platform. Free for viewers, paid for streamers, also streamers can get money from ads.

13 Veoh

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.

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

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

14 TeacherTube

Man my social studies teacher is awesome check him out on teacher tube mr. M

It’s the teacher version of you tube why?

So much of a rip off of YouTube I will barf LAST PLACE

Teachers' version of YouTube.


An awesome site to upload and watch pranks.

Hilarious channel to view good pranks.

It's terrible without Angry Grandpa.




I love Kissanime and Kisscartoon. They have good quality cartoons and animes on there plus you don't have to pay for them.

Every cartoon you're looking for and more. Movies too. New content almost every day.

It only has animated content, plus you can not upload your own videos.

I love the website. It just the inappropriate content that annoys me

17 Internet Archive

Well, the main purpose of this site is to archive content, but it is a fine platform for videos.

Not only does it have YouTube videos, it has removed YouTube videos, movies, music, and even books. YouTube only has videos, has the internet.

It's a fine site if you're looking for videos that don't exist on YouTube

You can find all kinds of things here!

18 Rumble
19 TubeRepeat

Come on, it's YouTube videos on repeat

Suck it replay button!

Mattwo's. Brain. Is. Damaged.

20 PewTube

Great video site! Alternative to YouTube! Simple, clean interface, and easy to use.

Great site and service. Censorship free and safe to express.

Free Speech for the win!

21 KissAnime

KissAnime has not only anime, but with it is KissCartoon (for series like Futurama, South Park, Family Guy, King of the Hill, Regular Show, etc), an Asian drama site, MANGA, and even movies like My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, and Pixar movies (on the KissCartoon part of it). It's a complete site and the best one, in my opinion, for Asian shows and entertainment as well as for your late Friday night South Park or Family Guy.

Why so low? It's technically an 8-15 year old's dream website for anime

Amazing but requires better colour combinations.

Awesome site, with a great library of sub and dubbed!

22 Tudou

China's version of YouTube.

Without a doubt, Youku, Tudou is the only one on the list that carries the same weight as youtube.


Good interface, doesn't track you, simply better.

Sometimes very slow, sometimes very fast.

24 YouNow

Great for live broadcasts

25 Megashare

Great to watch movies
