    Peertube gives you more control and more privacy and allows you to control your own videos if you want to or use a public instance.

    PeerTube is the open-source technology that links together independent instances on which people freely host and post videos. Find an instance that suits you or create your own, and join the federated PeerTube community !

    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.

    Much like NewPipe, you use this to avoid having to use YT to watch its content. You can also easily download the videos using any of the invidious instances, which is nice. If you're a content creator, though, it offers nothing.

    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.

    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.
