Whenever you hear about a famous videoclip or a famous person, it usually involves Youtube. Every minute 48 hours of video is being uploaded
on Youtube.However, the medium is losing its popularity. In some countries the medium has been banned, and changes to the site’s policy (such as the 10 minute limitations have made it less favored by people altogether.Luckily, there are a couple of sites on which you can upload videos, that are similar to Youtube and that are rising in popularity. Check out our three favorite Youtube alternatives below:
Flickr, which was initially a photo sharing website, now also has the option of uploading videos. Regular users can upload two 90-second videos a month, but pro users can upload an unlimited amount. It is not a great option for people who want to share big videos, but a big pro of the site is that it is already very popular, with its 50 million users.
This is the Youtube of the business world. Its main focus is on business videos, of corporations rather than homemade videos. The great thing about Viddler is that it has certain business tools and lets users access analytic, distribute to iTunes and customize video players. The site looks professional and is there for professional use, which makes it popular among corporations and company owners.
Vimeo is an artistic alternative to Youtube: the Vimeo users usually go for HQ content, and you don’t have to browse through a variety of silly, homemade videos of people farting or falling off a bicycle. There is the option to share videos to channels and groups, and there is a so called ‘video school’ that can help you make better videos. If you are a creative person who takes the art of video making seriously, then Vimeo is a site that you will like.
