      JohnFastman 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.

      pabloalcr 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 isn't an alternative, it is an interface for it.

      Youtube is the worst of the worst - but when I need to see something that is only there, I use NewPipe

      It is not a YouTube alternative. It is an alternative Android client to watch YouTube.

      RemovedUser 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.

      michellesayssup Been around long enough. Website is fast and speedy. A strong Youtube contender if they change it up to a marketplace type site.

      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.

      Dailymotion doesn't have the comments section on a video as Youtube and removed the livestream option.

      Plenty of content not found on Youtube. More lax terms of service than Youtube.

      LBRY is a true decentralized alternative to YouTube, it doesn't rely on a domain name for the videos to be accessible, hence the app. It's able to bring together all the best user experience from a centralized network and all the benefits of decentralization!

      No ads, you don't need an account to star or subscribe because they have an offline database that keeps track.

      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.

      energy1 It relies on YouTube to function, so it is in no way an alternative.
