Alternatives to YouTube for all platforms with Open Source 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 • 6 agrees and 0 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 • 5 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Libre/open source and federated. tuxayoMar 2018 Disagree   Agree

  • NewPipe

    NewPipe is a lightweight YouTube front-end for Android. It doesn't need the YouTube-API or any Google Play Services, as NewPipe only parses the YouTube website...

    • 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 • 24 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 • 7 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Youtube without big brother google. Guest • Jan 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • liteweight, allows downloads, no spying petralpaMar 2018 Disagree   Agree

    • 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. Guest • Feb 2016 • 10 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is a free/libre software that respects your freedom and the freedom of your personal data. Guest • Oct 2017 • 6 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Clueless how it works and it would not upload my video when I tried the demo so there was no way to figure it out. Guest • Dec 2017 • 2 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Poor in content, unused, not immediately clear, important structural difference that are not obvious. Guest • Jun 2017 • 3 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • I should just be able to logon and go you can't do that with this platform. Guest • May 2017 • 1 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Love it looks like youtube but its not. And I didn't know it was completly decentralized and open source! What a bonus! OAKSIF0Feb 2018 • 3 agrees and 1 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 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • D.Tube makes monetization easy and fair Guest • Feb 2018 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 • 0 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Great app, but it's an app for YouTube, so it's not an alternative to YouTube. osveinNov 2017 • 7 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is an alternative to the YouTube mobile app, not YouTube itself. Guest • May 2018 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • No Ads, unless they are integrated in the videos itselves. Which is a solution I like a lot. No ads make it perform very well. Guest • Dec 2017 Disagree   Agree
