    • 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 Disagree   Agree

    • DailyMotion offers nice options to manage and monetise your videos. And it's not linked to Google, which is a good point on my opinion. Guest • Jul 2017 Disagree   Agree

    Vidme

    The simplest way to upload and share videos.

    • Vid.me are very creator centred, or so they claim. They offer some limited monetisation options and since You Tube had started to discredit their original creators and suck up to advertiser entirely many YouTubers are now jumping ship. arglborpsMay 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Vidme is simple yet more on to getting acceptance by the YouTube community since it has what YouTube should've have and is still fairly new and doing well despite not being as big as YouTube or other video sharing sites Guest • Dec 2016 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 Disagree   Agree

Youtube has no pirated content, no viruses attached. It is one of the best video uploading and searching site. Compared to dailymotion, YouTube has more content, poularity and relevance.

A huge gripe here.
But such an epic video hosting and sharing website has been ruined with unneeded and complex G+ Account integration for no benefit.

Well, I have a question.
Are there any video sites won't re-encoding your video but just re-muxing it? I already knew tudou.com, but it needs 2000kbps above H264 video now, that way too high.

I know that Vimeo has better quality however I don't know if this is what you are looking for

Actually, if you use https://nichevid.com , and upload a video , and make sure you select "Use the Original Quality" then they don't do any transcoding.
