    • Vimeo was the first site to offer full HD online video, they have some interesting monetisation features and a clean interface. What's best though it's that the vimeo community is overwhelmingly creators and people who know what they're doing, so you won't find many cat videos or talentless basement dwellers filling up the site. arglborpsMay 2017 • 13 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • The fact that it has the similar old youtube 2006 layout and is much more simple in the navigation. It also has the 5 star rating system which we all loved. Guest • Aug 2017 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • The bad junk on YouTube is not on VidLii. Depsite the limit and the lower quality audio on some older vidlli videos. i recommend this. Guest • Nov 2017 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Great website. Tons of customization, Great features, worked on constantly and has a decent community for the most part. Even has a partnership feature where you can make money so it's all set. We're getting groups and annotations soon, and later we'll likely get live streaming. 5/5 i keep changing my channel because too much customization lol Guest • Dec 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It has the old youtube layout. Star ratings. Comment dislikes actually work. It even has the old youtube flash video player from 2009 11pixels_Jul 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It has the classic feel of old You Tube mixed with newer features being updated regularly. The community are great people as are the owners and developers.

    • What could be a better alternative to watching YouTube than watching YouTube without all the nasty Google spying going on? NewPipe brings exactly that to the Android platform. I'm very happy it exists. Use this instead of Google's YouTube app to prevent Google constantly monitoring what you like to watch. JohnFastmanDec 2016 • 21 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • NewPipe isn't an alternative to YouTube, but rather to YouTube's Android app. It's packed with features the official app doesn't have all while being lighter on resources and having no spying on the client side. pabloalcrOct 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • is youtube but without centralization and with crypto exchanged as views IIRC. It has the best interface of any youtube competitor and seems to have a business model that will payoff. lorendiasMar 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Sadly, because of the sharing model, the video size limit on DTube is 1GB, which is not really enough for good quality gameplays, so it's not a good alternative for gamers. Guest • May 2018 Disagree   Agree

The best and popular software I ever used to watch my videos.

YouTube is not only a great platform to watch but to also upload videos. Having such an influential place where I can share my creative materials has been a blessing, as no other platform provides such reach. Additionally, although I dislike certain aspects of it, the recent changes in the algorithm have proven to be "optimized" for viral videos and one can literally change their life overnight. ??


good but...

i think is great, you can find almost everything but this "parental control" they have for when kids use this, just doesn't work so good, you can find really weird things.
