      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.

      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

      You won't be censored on BitChute so you can more reliably share your content with other people.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

    • This site mimics old YouTube and has the 2008 header and 2009 looking pages. This fixes many problems YouTube has, like lack of customization and community issues. Share your videos around the world. Display Yourself.


      Previously known as VidBit.

      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.

      Three layouts you can choose from as of right now. The user can customize their channel to look anyway they want. A lot of updates to add new features and fix bugs. Active community.

      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.

      d.tube 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.

      MediaGoblin is an open source project than can be hosted on any server. It is decentralized but a federation connects all servers between them. And they don't use your data like YouYube/Google.
