      rigelk Small is beautiful, and federated meshes communities together to form video networks ressembling their users. Moderation is done by the community, and development is led by a non-profit: Framasoft. You get control over your data, and you can join other servers if you so desire. Plenty of possibilities rarely seen elsewhere!

      It is a great alternative to Youtube which lets you host your own video platform and connect it to the other peertube servers

      Not bad. its federations of multiple links of different sites and different video hosting places. But, there are some issues like lack of functional issues to like; simplistic navigation, more proper view-able UI, and loading times. Overall? Not bad.

    2. 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 in order to gain the information it needs.

      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.

      4pfn057n If you're on Android and you want to watch YouTube content without ads and data collection, you should use NewPipe. It's literally the best FOSS YouTube front-end for Android devices. It plays videos in the background, useful for podcasts and audio stuff, and you can download videos too.

      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.

      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.

      Exeref Daily motion is a good alternative for YouTube if one wishes to earn ad revenue from their videos, but it's not as good of an alternative for building a community since it has no comment sections or any other means of contact between viewers and creators.

      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, unless they are integrated in the videos itselves. Which is a solution I like a lot. No ads make it perform very well.
