Totally free from the censorship/demonetization of YouTube, everything is open source from bottom up, very clean design, allows to tip creators independent of any company. There are lots of YT creators already syncing their content to LBRY and there are almost any kind of content you can think of! Most importantly, no ads!

The web interface (beta.lbry.tv) is a killer feature. Anybody can link to the web version without having to tell people to install the client or run it on their computer, just like any other video streaming service.

It is still missing a playlist feature which I would like to have. I hear they are working on it. But other than that, complete ad free video watching experience.

Decentralized, it prevents abuse of power Open source, it allows for community to create forks and modify behavior Protocol, not an app - it has potential to become the static data sharing platform Among other reasons.

Contrary to what they say (and put fake reviews themselves), the LBRY/Odysee team is corrupt. They have harassed several creators, who have just stopped creating videos - I have seen this happen to 3 creators. Their foundation team and advisors behave like gang members who like to exercise their power on LBRY payouts and on their Discord channels. There's a creator I know whose tips were blocked because he had an altercation with LBRY team on Discord about some trivial thing and furthermore people could not even tip him directly using "Support" button. So, LBRY/Odysee is just like YouTube, and even more contrary to what they market, they do censor videos. There's a serious lack of transparency in what they do. Oh and most of the times you can't even exchange their crypto because it is thrown out from exchanges and swapping sites. Unless you want unpredictable chump change and can tolerate random incidents of harassment from a corrupt group of people (who are not even creators), then put your videos on LBRY/Odysee, otherwise stay away!

Host all kinds of content (Videe, Pictures, files, interactive), allows YouTubers to easily synchronize their content automatically, has build in payment system. Smaller channels have buffering issues, bigger channels seem mostly fine.

I believe LBRY is the real YouTube alternative because it is making the right decisions as a platform and taking time to develop what matters. LBRY is dynamic and versatile.
