Youtube clones

Youtube has become the generic term for a video sharing website!

But there are several such sites now on the web, and not all of them are clones of Youtube in the real sense of the term, since some of them offer many add-ons and embellishments and even show a much better quality videos than Youtube.

Of late, I find that Youtube is not embed-friendly, to wit, when you click on the “Play” button on any web site with Youtube video, you get a solemn message stating “This video is not available”, but the video is available when you visit the youtube page of the video! Weird, what!

Here is an attempt to put together a comprehensive list of such video sharing websites, where you can upload, share or even edit, enhance and change format. Some sites even allow free downloads of the videos.

I have checked each link individually and have listed only the working sites. And I have handpicked the following few as good and hassle-free sites.

  1. Guba – Very good site, fast loading, better than Youtube
  2. Blip.tv – Variety shows, up and coming
  3. Daily Motion
  4. Google Video
  5. Metacafe — You can monetize your video clippings on the site!
  6. Music.com — High quality music videos
  7. Vimeo
  8. Revver
  9. Yahoo Video
  10. Here are the rest of them listed alphabetically:

  11. Blastro
  12. Blennus
  13. BoFunk funny pics and videos

  48. Vuze

As the internet is highly dynamic and the shelf life of websites being equal to that of a banana, the links may become dead as the sites conk off. If you find any change, please voice it on the comments box, so that I can edit the list accordingly.

    Thanks, Passing.

    The Wikipedia page is a comprehensive resource.

    I’ll try Imeem. I am really in need of a repository to store my audio files which can be linked to my blog.

    I’ll explore it.

    Regards,
