5 Video Sharing Sites which are Better than YouTube

YouTube, owned by Google is the big daddy of videos and we can get virtually any kind of movies or videos in YouTube, from cricket or football matches to television soaps and top movies or even scandals. But still YouTube lacks behind in many aspects like clarity of video, limitation on size of video etc. So here are 5 Video sharing sites which are better than YouTube (not in terms of number of videos).

1. Blip.tv: Blip.tv Beta allows you to upload videos through its website or a desktop based software or through FTP or via mobile phone. Blip.tv is one of the best sites in terms of quality of video displayed.

BLip TV

Features;

  • Excellent Video and audio quality
  • Better upload options, via software, ftp or mobile phone
  • Unlimited user storage
  • Max file size 100 MB
  • Very good embedded player for websites and blogs
  • Also provides revenue sharing

2. DivX Stage 6: DivX stage 6 beta is developed by the people behind the DivX format and this site allows users to upload videos upto 2GB limit.

Features;

  • Very good video and audio quality
  • 2GB upload size

3. Microsoft Soap Box: Microsoft’s Soapbox is integrated with MSN platform. This is again a good service which allows to share videos with almost all Microsoft services like Windows Live Spaces.

  • Unlimited storage
  • Uploads file size upto 100 MB
  • Good quality audio and video

  • Superior quality player

5. Revver: The best feature of Revver are the revenue sharing for its users (50:50 split) and unlimited upload size. There is no limitation to the upload size. But the disadvantage of Revver is that all videos feature ads on them.

    Just to point out that Brightcove is not longer providing uploading and storage services to direct consumer. It is now only available to Brightcove media and business partners.

    Stage 6 is totally awesome… the video quality is wide screen and totally superior to that over YouTube. Unfortunately, these under dogs don’t get the traffic that YouTube has…

    I don’t know why but I still prefer YouTube. Probably because now I am very much addicted to its player and all.

    YouTube is fast compared to other site but Stage 6 is also one really good video sharing site.

    Great List.

    @DJ,
    Yea, since we have been using YouTube for long time, we may not shift to any other site. 🙂
    But disagree on the point YouTube is fast, which aspect is it fast when compared to others?

    Yep youtube is more popular if not the best in quality. I used blip.tv other than youtube, it is also good

    YouTube I heard is going to be increasing the quality of the videos very soon by detecting how fast your Internet connection is! That will be a welcome change.

    Youtube is also going to increse the upload size of videos but the length will remain the same.

    In terms of quality Stage 6 rocks .

    Nirmal, might be you need to check out MegaVideo.com. The quality is fabulous!

    @Kuanhoong,
    Just check this image. I was able to upload to Brightcove.

    @Jamy,
    Thanks for the Stumble.

    @Keith,
    Thanks for the Stumble, indeed few more sites to add up to videos. 🙂

    @Aseem,
    If you Tube is increasing quality, then thats good news.

    @Madhur,
    Stage 6 is definitely great one.

    @Ben,
    Good to see you back after a long time. I’ll check out mega video.

    While Youtube is still king, these are nice alternatives! I’ve used Blip.tv for hosting my Flash slides, which I can’t do it in Youtube. Revver is also quite nice.

    December 5, 2007 at 10:03 pm

    OMG,

    I wonder did you actually read the blog that I gave to you?

    As I said, the service will end in 18th December 2007. It is 6th December now. You can still upload you video. That is till 18th December 2007. 12 days to go.

    Thank you.

    The video quality is quite good in blip.tv.. Youtube loses out on that big time.

    @Harris,
    Blip is really good when compared to YouTube.

    @Vijay,
    Indeed YouTube misses out on one major thing and thats quality of videos.

    Revver is really nice. I have been using it for a couple years now and they are always upgrading stuff. A lot of sharing options, widgets, etc. I have been using it to upload my own videos and share the videos of other creators. I have made some money while doing it.

    I like them all and agree that youtube quality is not that good. However I prefer youtube and i have signed up with every video service (revver,westindiantube,veoh,break,google,yahoo,aol uncut,bliptv) just to name a few. But the bottom line for me is this. Youtube has a large viewing community and i have gotten national and international attention from major TV networks.

    as this post is quite old and as meanwhile so many news systems for web based video management entered the market, i would like to add http://www.vuuzla.com to the list above.

    unlimited video length, no video size restriction, lot`s of advertising opportunities within the player. and it`s free.

    These websites are so good in quality that i consider them even better than you tube. But You tube being the older one and large collection of videos’ is preferred by video viewers.
