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


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

2 Dailymotion 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. (

Great site. They almost never remove videos

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

This is my first choice when I can't get YouTube - BreakFastBeast2005

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.

I LOVED the OLD YouTube where there was actually a format that encouraged real debate! Will definitely check out ZippCast...but it would probably be better to have e a simpler name. Jesus is coming back soon. please visit

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


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

Um you do know this is youtube right all videos on google videos are just YouTube videos archived on the google page it directs you to YouTube - Alapisboy

5 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.

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.

If you want to play loud music, I advise moving into a rural area where you have enough space for the sound to dissipate before it reaches the edge of your property, as to not bother anyone. - 404_name_missing

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...

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. - AliciaMae

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.

Feeling weary of Twitch. Lurked a No Pixel RP streamer's chat because the dude was good at shooting cops in the game. The chat however, was disturbing. Subjects such as "Whites Only" and linked content such as this

https : //imgur. com/ijhTUne.

The streamer did not ban anyone. It continued for some time so I left. I understand these beliefs exist in the world, but how has this been going on with this guys' stream since 2014 without a disciplinary warning or anything? Does Twitch support these beliefs? If so, they should just admit to it and we'll all move on.

Its low because its only gaming. Nothing else.

13 Netflix Netflix Netflix is an American entertainment company founded by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph on August 29, 1997, in Scotts Valley, California.

Not an alternative, but it's great for watching movies and T.V. shows on the go aside from the fact you have to pay for it of course.

I love using Netflix but it isn't technically an alternative. I also think Mattwo should give the contenders a chance

Not an alternative because u have to pay for it

You watch movies and T.V. Shows on Netflix. Not "MY NAME JEFF VINE COMPILITION VIDEO" or "I FOUND A DEAD BODY IN JAPAN"

26 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.

Who cares about Google? Microsoft is for professionals.

29 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.

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

Amazing but requires better colour combinations.

Love it

A lot of people do not like this site because they do not take any crap here or vulgar behavior but this site is most promising and the internet rats do not stand a chance here as well as scammers or spammers and they have a no tolerance policy for such behavior and they stick to it. 5 stars on this upcoming site and the speed and up loader is amazing. Live tech help when you need and support site the works.

Probably the best youtube alternative yet. They have a professional team, stable uploader, good community, and fully customizable channel. It has everything I need and want in a youtube alternative. This website will rise above the others and succeed.

This site is really bad and full with ads + nothing is actually working there!

Great for live broadcasts


35 Wenoo

Reminds me of YouTube in it's prime when users were actually able to upload content without having to deal with copyright infringement or getting suspended. This also brings back pleasant memories of having the option to customize your own channel without it looking identical to everyone else channel. Definitely a terrific site with great potential.

Wenoo is definitely the best YouTube alternative ever made! It has all the features, at least almost, the YouTube old YouTube had. But guess what? Wenoo is nothing like how it was months ago, it has gone through tons of improvements! You could add a banner, without having to be partnered. You could also add widgets, animated icons, as well as animated backgrounds. It has the option between the 2007-2009 layout, and the 2010- 2011, making it far more optional, so nobody would be stuck with what they might want to change. Most videos buffer at a decent speed, much better than the so called best YouTube alternative; ZippCast. Wenoo has been around far longer than ZippCast, but now it has really gotten started. ZippCast is truly the worst, and will never make it. Wenoo will eventually have what ZippCast was special, whatever that was laugh out loud. Anyways, Wenoo is the one and only with a great admin who knows how to fix any issues with the site.

Great site it is the old YouTube it has recently had a new admin working on the site. There have been some new features added to the site the old YouTube 2.0 channel Design and you have a choice of the 1.0 and 2.0 Channel design, It has the old RED 5 Stars rating instead of like or dislike bar

Not recommended, they only take local big company email providers that can be hacked or tampered with only the big corporations - but Wenoo isn't that good for daily uploading. its very choppy and slow( not that many people there and its not a youtube alternative )

Tell me, how is Vevo #6 on this list, BUT THIS IS ALL THE WAY DOWN TO #50? What is up with this? This is a nice community. Sadly, it's SO LOW on this list, but it should top this. I may use YouTube more often, but I would like to try to break my YouTube-uploading habit and create more on Vidme. It's just so much better. Props to whoever made this site for doing so. - BoomDaCorgi1337

I've been using this site for a couple months and am considering it an alternative to YouTube. They are pretty responsive when you have a question.

42 Upload Society

I find that Uploadsociety is and should be the number. Site as it does look like the old YouTube.. But I was checked out Zippcast last night and found that they are having problems loading videos they are not making there own videos there and so the the members that are identical to Uploadsociety and voting many times once for uploadsociety are voting even now for YouTube as well for Zippcast but for one reason only they are using the embedded button in Uploadsociety and embed a video and bring it to Zippcast making it a duplicate of Uploadsociety There are a lot of hackers on Zippcast and cloners, as well as many Trolls, haters and the such but you do get that everywhere in any site. David the CEO is catching them by the dozens and they are all running to Zippcast how do I know this they have hacked me opening and I had to have someone set something up on my computer to catch them and now there computers are either shut down or all muffled up because they were hacking me I can tell ...more

I was a member on You Tube for years. I had over 2500 subscribers and was asked 3 times by You Tube to become a partner. Just as I was about to except they changed everything. Now they have made it impossible to have a social channel there unless you are big business. Basically now it is overwhelmed by ads. I found Upload Society just 6 months after they started and have been there ever since. I now have my videos watched a thousand times more then You Tube. For example. My latest film was posted 3 days before it was posted on Upload Society. With in 24 hours of being posted at Upload it was watched over 1000 times, and You Tube 21. Upload also makes it a place to interact with friends I have made all over the world where as You Tube now makes that almost impossible. Go to some You Tube channels. Most have been abandoned and there owners not been there in months some years. Upload is everything I want in a truly "Social Network"
Come join us, I promise you wont be sorry! Signed: ...more

I believe that upload society is well above the number thirteen rank to an alternative to YouTube. Anyone who use to like the old YouTube will not only find this site similar to it but several steps above. In my experience here as a member has been one of a friendly atmosphere opposed to many of the other
Sites where making a complete ass out of yourself is mandatory. People that like a true experience of
Supreme quality in every aspect of the word is encouraged to come see and judge for themselves.
