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.

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.

There's a reason this isn't as popular as YouTube - tequila

Vimeo shows high quality shows that aren't cluttered

2 Dailymotion 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.

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

Youtube is the best, but this is the one of the best alternatives. - Gameplayer

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.

Perfect alternative! Looks and functions like the old YT. But, they are it running by slow servers which is a big problem, in my opinion.

4 Vevo

Videos on this site are pretty average, not have the range of Youtube

This is a channel, not a alternative to youtube - Gameplayer

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

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

5 Metacafe

Oops ment to click on daily motion

It does not have intresting videos I like youtube better. - ZacharyBabkow

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.

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

6 Twitch

The best alternative to YouTube. There are always fun things happening on Twitch streams. - RogerMcBaloney

Definitely second.

Best alternative by far (at least for gaming).

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.

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

It dosnt have azzyland or ninja or anything like that but its great for binge watching - GinnyWeasleyLuna


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

I gave them a chance, they all failed me, why should I have faith in something that never works? - Mattwo

10 Funny Or Die

Nothing but hilarious videos. And it has an awesome voting system.

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 except lame videos that are played out.

Some ARE funny. And some must die, LOL. I love that site. - Jihadi_John_Isis

The Contenders

11 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.

Filled with porn - Gaygure

Tons of Rule 34 - Craopoo

Animation: Newgrounds
Let's Plays: Twitch
Music: Vevo
Anything Else: sorry bud you're out of luck

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.

This is great for anime. - nycbabe

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.

18 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.

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

19 KissAnime

Might be a great Crunchyroll alternative to be honest - BorisRule

Best anime watching videos website

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!

20 Internet Archive

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

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

You can find all kinds of things here! - HCShannon

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

22 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...

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

Currently the alternative with the best potential

Where is altCensored?

29 BitVid

It's my replacement for youtube. I hope they keep growing.

BitVid is still a work in progress, but once it becomes a thing, it will make YouTube the new MySpace of video sharing.

It's going to be the next YouTube.

This site is just getting started, but their approach looks very good. Could be destined for greatness.

39 WeSplash

EVERYTHING you loved about YouTube before it got messed up. Best alternative ever. I almost cried when I saw my profile page on WeSplash, I never thought that classic layout would exist somewhere again. 5 stars!

DeeDee here, the website is very simple and lacks some modern functions. Aside from that, it's simply AWESOME. It's a website for community and not for business like YouTube. The quality is satisfactory and for the first time ever in years, I feel like I'm inside a video website and not in a cubicle.

Wesplash Is an awesome Community Better than Youtube that's for Sure and Not to mention ZippCast was a Good choice BUT they Lacked Money Issues. This site Does not in this case is Good I Love this site and I'm NOT going away. I Would Like to see Banners and channel 2.0 BUT that's for the near Future Not now.

Awesome website with great features and an awesome community.

It would be extremely ironic if my school blocked this site, because I go to a Christian school - pupcatdog

It's great to have a place for Christ-centered, family oriented videos and fellowship. The rest of the world is overrun with pornography, violence and vulgar language and I'm tired of having it shoved down my throat.

Why won't my school let me go here? - shawnmccaul22

In bets, it's practically flawless. Once this site hits the launch, it will be possibly the best site going around. The owner is efficient and more than capable of doing the job on his own. It's easy to customize and more features are being added reasonably fast. Videos play well too. Great little site, and I much prefer it to Zippcast, which has a site owner with a reputation for closing without notice and hacking competitor sites.

Dead and the owner was a total psychopath who abused his admin powers on Wenoo just because of a petty dispute between us. - Mattwo

Best YouTube alternative hands down!
