    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.

    Only if we talk about YT as video hosting for companies or frellancers, then Vimeo is a great one!

    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.

    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 vs YouTube opinions
    Almost everyone thinks LBRY is a great alternative to YouTube.
     all • positive • negative      relevance • date

    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!

    Odysee is in my opinion the best alternative to YouTube. It has most of the features YouTube has including livestreaming. Users can earn money through LBRY credits by getting donations on uploads or by completing challenges. I highly recommend.
