Change the Channel: The 9 Best Alternatives to YouTube

7. Flickr

While many people associate Flickr with a site to store photos, the truth is that you can also upload and stream videos as well, much like YouTube. The site is very user-friendly, and accounts can be set up for free; however, video uploads can only be 90 seconds long (max) and only two videos at the 90 second time limit can be uploaded.

8. Photobucket

Much like Flickr, Photobucket can be used for so much more than photos. While there are videos that can be streamed and uploaded, for longer than 90 seconds (unlike Flickr), this site needs to catch on to increase its user-generated video content. Therefore, there is limited content when compared to YouTube (due to viewership), despite the user-friendly and high-quality properties available on the site.


9. 9Gag

Quite popular on Twitter and Facebook, this site offers a tremendous amount of entertainment thanks to the plethora of memes, images, GIFs, videos, and more that it houses. It offers the purest form of amusement for users. However, there is a significant number of “not suitable for work” content within the channel. 9Gag viewers need to caution on what they click on and be aware of where they are clicking it, so younger viewers (or management!) doesn’t catch on to their streaming.
