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

Although I don't really know anything besides YouTube in the video industry, I have heard great things about Vimeo and I would pick them over any other extremely weird, corrupt, or dead services that are also in this list (Blip.T.V., Revver)

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. (

Great site. They almost never remove videos

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

My go-to site for cartoon watching. YouTube doesn't allow full episodes, and KissCartoon takes up too much data.

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.

This one sounds good - Lunala

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.

This site Sucks. You can't watch what you want. When are these websites and T.V. stations just put the ads on and honest people don't have to go looking for sites that don't make you any money. You people are really thick as a brick.

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.

Vevo is amazing to listen to music and its videos are so creative

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

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.

The only platform I know except from youtube

14 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

I watch nexflix all the time it's a good app you just have to have strong wifi signal and that's it has 2017 movies out and its only 10 dollors a month if there's not a good signal then its going to pause and a lot but if you do have good signal it will go jut fine you can watch it on your T.V. if you have a smart T.V. or on you computer,phone its works on every devise nexflix on your phone it takes a lot of space you can even have you own profile

15 Newgrounds 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.

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

No it ain't, cause it's THE website for animation and internet gaming. - RadOn

The origin point of all the internet famous animators.

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

Aah yes. Newgrounds...the same website that ruined my childhood with animated sex films.

19 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
