Alternatives to YouTube for Self-hosting with any license

  • PeerTube

    PeerTube is a decentralized, free and open source alternative to video broadcasting services.

    • It's open source, decentralized, complete features, this is the future of the web. DarkRedmanAug 2018 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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. swedneckJul 2018 • 36 agrees and 10 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • 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. Guest • Oct 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • Peertube has (nearly) all important features that youtube offers, while it provides us with a platform, that is ours in our hands Guest • Apr 2018 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It has most of the important features that youtube offers and also a free product without ad's. joseph_mathewJul 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • Open source, decentralized and federated bananaMay 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • Open source AND decentralised means it can never turn against the userbase. Guest • Apr 2019 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's a free and federated alternative that anyone is free to self-host or not. It even works with a mastodon account! Guest • Mar 2019 Disagree   Agree

  • IPFSTube

    IPFSTube is a player and uploader for videos, stored in the distributed IPFS network.

    • 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. Guest • Jan 2019 • 12 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • This one is not bad and not so bloated as most other alternatives. However, it seems to be not developed anymore. The latest release was 2017 and that is also the year the last commit was made in its Github repository. AkitoJul 2020 Disagree   Agree
