There’s no doubt that YouTube is the most popular website for videos, yet it is not the only online streaming site where you can get “better” videos. Let’s look at other options than YouTube. Yes, of course, the “better than” option is open to debate.
It is worth visiting Vimeo. You will get high-definition videos, mostly on high quality content. While there is a section of user-generated videos, you have sections of well-known films and TV shows like E!’s The Royals, Spike TV’s Blue Mountain State and not to forget Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black.
Metacafe specialises in shortform video content. It covers everything from the best surfers, short and sharp product reviews and tips on video games. These are just the popular categories. The best thing about Metacafe is its simplicity. The user interface is easy to navigate with a menu that links to features like “latest,” “popular,” and “trending” videos. You have a huge list of 16 video categories to enjoy.
This Israeli startup video site views itself as an internet TV. It has millions of mostly professionally created videos. Veoh has a wide selection of TV shows like full episodes like NCIS, Two and a Half Men, The Price Is Right, and The Young and the Restless. You also get classic shows like Family Ties, Melrose Place and Beverly Hills: 90210. You also have lots of music videos, besides a full-movie section.
As the name indicates, Internet Archive is a library of free content — covering books, music, software, movies and many more. The website has one of the best video collection. I suggest you look at the website’s huge collection of historical content.
You do get newer content, but the best are those old videos that include obscure news reports, TV shows, and of course movies that are very hard to find on other websites. And if you have good videos, you can also upload it on The Internet Archive.
You may say that ‘MySpace is so history’, but the fact is that it was a precursor to Facebook is still online. These days the website is putting more focus on video content. Most videos are interview-based and they featured celebs. One good series is Getting Nailed where celebs are questioned as they get their nails done at various salon.
if you are looking for things that are funny and goofy — photos, GIFs, videos, memes, anime and more — 9GAG is the right place to hang around. The website lives up to its tagline “Go fun yourself”.
The site is so addictive, that you will be tempted to click stuff that are NSFW. It’s guaranteed you will spend lots of time browsing the website.
The best website to watch inspirational talks on various issues like technology, entertainment, business, designing, science and global issues. All talks are not serious and boring. There are talks that are funny and emotional as well. Go watch and be inspired.
If you have “better” websites for videos than these sites, do it in the comment box.
