      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.

      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

      You won't be censored on BitChute so you can more reliably share your content with other people.

      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.

      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.

    • This site mimics old YouTube and has the 2008 header and 2009 looking pages. This fixes many problems YouTube has, like lack of customization and community issues. Share your videos around the world. Display Yourself.


      Previously known as VidBit.

      The fact that it has the similar old youtube 2006 layout and is much more simple in the navigation. It also has the 5 star rating system which we all loved.

      Three layouts you can choose from as of right now. The user can customize their channel to look anyway they want. A lot of updates to add new features and fix bugs. Active community.

      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.

      d.tube 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.

      Vlare has all the features that YouTube used to have and more. Additionally, they are a free and open platform, unlike YouTube. Some really cool features of Vlare include, but are not limited to, like to dislike ration being visible on video thumbnail, groups, various tabs for sorting content, including subscriptions, trending, popular, recommendend, and new. It has everything you could want and is so much better than Youtube. Check it out!

      It's not a good alternative to YouTube because the idea is upload a video, get a link and share it. That's it. It doesn't have a interface that you can search for videos and etc. Basically, it doesn't have the "social network" that YouTube has.

      It's completely different and is VERY unreliable, I would only use it for short clips that are temporarily needed
