There are many apps that look like YouTube, but among all of them, Vimeo is probably the best alternative. This app allows you to discover and follow people from your niche, upload videos up to 10 GB in size and even create a video that is streamed via peer-to-peer connection with other users. This app includes;
Apps like YouTube
This app is the second most popular apps like YouTube. This app allows you to upload videos up to 50 MB in size and it gives you an option to pick your download speed (between fast, faster and ultrafast) which makes downloading of video easy. It has one drawback that it doesn’t allow HD videos.
This app allows you to share videos with your friends on the Facebook platform, making them viewable by anyone on their news feeds. The size limit for uploading videos is 4 GB per file (theoretically) but practically not more than 100MB I guess, so if you want a truly professional app for sharing videos with your friends/family members or any other person, then this app is not for you!
SoundCloud is a good alternative to YouTube, where you can upload unlimited videos or songs, which are neatly organized into albums that can be shared with friends and others via the SoundCloud community or by embedding them on your website to generate more exposure. The free account allows you to upload up to 3 hours of audio material per month while the Pro version costs $6/month or $55/year. You can also opt for their pro Plus version at $16/month or $135/year but this version gives you unlimited uploading capacity plus priority support.
This app is a good alternative for YouTube and allows you to upload videos up to 2GB in size and it also has an option of downloading the video with just one click. It also gives you an option where you can convert your existing video on the Metacafe website or upload from your hard drive. The drawback of this app is that it doesn’t allow HD / high quality videos.
Veoh allows you to watch thousands of high definition free Internet TV Shows, Movies , Anime & More.. This app is quite popular among people who love watching movies /videos online because its interface is quite simple but yet beautiful . You can search easily for any video by using their search bar or even picking a category from the drop-down menu on the top left corner of the app’s homepage. Youtube lovers will definitely love this app.
Bilibili is a Chinese video-sharing website where you can watch anime, cartoons and various other videos. Although this app has few ads hence the page load time is quite fast, but their latest update removed the download feature which makes it more or less useless for me. This may affect the usage of this app by many people.
Amazon instant video is ‘ok’ in terms of its features but it allows you to watch Amazon Prime Videos only. The added advantage of the Amazon app is that you will get access to Amazon’s exclusive deals and content. They also offer monthly paid plans for people who don’t want to buy the entire year at once.
Netflix offers movies, TV shows, stand-up comedies and documentaries which are quite new (and some old). You can create your own profile with separate recommendations so that the next time you log on to this app, it won’t show recommended videos from other users whom you might not like. You can choose between Basic ($7/month), Standard ($8/month) or Premium ($11/month) plans depending upon your usage.
