Alternatives to YouTube for all platforms with any license

  • PeerTube

    Federated (ActivityPub) video streaming platform using P2P (BitTorrent) directly in the web browser with WebTorrent and Angular.

    • Peertube is federated, which means anyone with the know-how can host their own instance of peertube where they can upload videos to, and anyone on another peertube instance can find their server/account and view their videos. For an example of a federated service already in use, look no further than Email. swedneckJul 2018 • 22 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Out of the decentralized, open source alternatives to YouTube, this one is probably the best. It's being developed by Framasoft who consistently does amazing things Guest • May 2018 • 15 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • No ads, Open-Source, the best one ! Guest • Dec 2018 • 4 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It does not have very many videos on it at all! I searched Minecraft and multiple other subjects and came up empty! Guest • Apr 2019 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's open source, decentralized, complete features, this is the future of the web. DarkRedmanAug 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Open source, decentralized and federated bananaMay 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • Libre/open source and federated. tuxayoMar 2018 • 8 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Vimeo

    Vimeo can help with video collaboration, video distribution and video everything else. .

    • Different business model entirely, not enough of the same content. zaneNov 2017 • 27 agrees and 10 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Been around long enough. Website is fast and speedy. A strong Youtube contender if they change it up to a marketplace type site. michellesayssupAug 2019 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • There are upload limits and it caters to a different audience stranger195Jul 2019 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Vimeo is way different. It seems to be more about short films, design, and things like that. This is not close enough to YouTube Guest • Nov 2018 • 4 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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 • 26 agrees and 14 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • User interface is pretty bad, very unintuitive on PC. Mobile is surprisingly user friendly. Also, in my personal experience, three accounts I've created have been disabled due to suspicious activity. I frequently use a VPN as I travel a lot. I just watched videos and like stuff - not even commented. Kind of annoying. Guest • Oct 2018 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's not free, there are no playlists, and the interface is not very userfriendly Guest • Aug 2017 • 25 agrees and 23 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • 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 • 34 agrees and 9 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 • 17 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Censor free, easy to use, and fun. Would recommend. Guest • Jul 2019 Disagree   Agree

    • It's not a good alternative to YouTube because the idea is upload a video, get a link and share it. That's it.

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. ??

Hi, My name Andrew, I have been using AlternativeTo.Net for a long period of time, It served me very well and I got a lot of useful information from it, so I decided to make a review on it. As I see you are a user of this website so I would really appreciate some feedback if you don't mind, Thanks. The Website Review - https://bit.ly/2A9YvL1
