What are all the alternatives to youtube?

The ones I know of are:

https://www.bitchute.com
https://www.brandnewtube.com
https://www.brighteon.com
https://www.dailymotion.com
https://www.newtube.app
https://www.odysee.com
https://www.rumble.com

What am I missing? I don't care about Facebook, Twitter, or anything Google or "Big Tech" related. They have become useless for 1st amendment.

I will continue adding suggestions as I see them.

The reason I'm doing this is that youtube is quickly becoming worthless. A few years ago, I implemented a CGI program to simply record anything I thought might be worth preserving in the future from youtube. I have another script that I run yearly to see what has been removed (for whatever reason) to see the downfall of the publisher. Coupled with this knowledge, I can find out where people have moved to or if they've been driven to extinction. I have quite a collection but it's almost entirely political.

bitchute seems to be the best alternative. Most channels that are de-monitized seem to land there.

This is how Wikipedia describes Bitchute in the opening sentence:

BitChute is a video hosting service known for accommodating far-right individuals and conspiracy theorists, and for hosting hateful material.

Gee, no bias here.....

Wikipedia has long been dead:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Committee_for_Accuracy_in_Middle_East_Reporting_in_America#CAMERA_campaign_in_Wikipedia

That happened 12 years ago. Since that point in time, there's been political censorship and bias there - well, there was before, but that was its downfall into the abyss. Wikipedia is only useful for science, and even THAT I think will go away in time. There's alternatives to it, but, engh, an encyclopedia is only useful to start research anyhow.

No point. Bitchute caters to people that embrace freedom of speech and have been victims of libel and slander themselves. Wikipedia denies there is any censorship within the United States on Google, Facebook, or Twitter. According to them, censorship doesn't exist and neither does propaganda in the United States - except LONG AGO. If you've not been a victim of censorship, or libel or slander by "authorities" - you're not doing it right.

Would you pay $100 for a box that ONLY access the internet, doesn't support netflix, and allows you to archive videos, and uses your phone as a remote control?

I'm looking for ideas for products. I can build that, no problem.

Note that the Wikipedia articles with insane levels of liberal bigotry are all locked.

We should make copies of all locked Wikipedia articles, edit them to make them objective, and run a parallel site. I believe the Wikipedia source code is available.

If the articles are locked, then the 230 protections shouldn't exist,

Just throwing that out there.

No. But if it had a very small intuitive remote I would.

I've thought about making my own private roku channels as well, it's not that hard. Just no time. Once I quit software dev maybe I'll have it in me.

Decentralized video sharing platform Odysee has almost doubled its traffic since last week
By Tom Parker
Posted 9:00 pm
Millions of users are embracing alternative-tech after unprecedented Big Tech censorship. ...

Odysee’s rapid uptick in traffic follows Big Tech’s mass censorship since last week’s storming of the US Capitol. Tens of thousands of users, including the President of the United States, have had their social media accounts permanently suspended and the tech giants have outright banned the use of certain phrases and discussions related to the 2020 US presidential election.

This unprecedented level of censorship has resulted in an exodus to alternative platforms such as Odysee. Other alternative platforms, including free speech social network Gab messaging app Telegram, have also seen massive growth over the last week.

“No social media site is actually sophisticated enough in their design to prevent the spreading of links if people are willing to type them in,” CEO and Founder of Odysee Jeremy Kauffman said. “The only set of facts that fits what we witnessed last week was a group of powerful people finding a way to accumulate even more power to themselves. If we care about the future of democracy, we must use services where this power does not exist.”

Twitter bans users from posting links to Bitchute

Twitter was now blocking all links, shared in tweets, to the BitChute domain.

This is the case as of March 12.

BitChute is an independent video hosting platform that has gained in popularity as an alternative to the centralized giant YouTube, which has been plagued by waves of censorship and demonetization.

Now, instead of allowing users to see the BitChute page they intended to post, Twitter served them with the message, “Something went wrong…”

As the BitChute account noted, this is very vague – to say the least. However, some light is shed on what might be behind Twitter’s decision to block these links in other messages some users have reported.

One of them said that Twitter was preventing completion of requests because BitChute links have been identified “by Twitter or our partners” as “potentially harmful.”

These messages don’t explain who Twitter’s partners mandating these blocks might be, though it’s not beyond the realm of possibility they might be the notorious fact-checkers that the social media company hires to police the platform.

These users were also instructed to visit Twitter’s Help Center to “learn more.” But BitChute explained that the block appeared to be blanket, regardless of the category of content the links lead to: gaming, makeup and DIY tutorials, even “cat videos” have all been affected.

One of the blocked links was to a video on BitChute that went into how a BBQ business owner struggles to keep open in the face of Canada’s strict Covid restrictions.

This is the one that received the “potentially harmful” label, in addition to the useless one on top of the page that said something had gone “wrong.”

Something has indeed gone wrong – only not with the independent platform, or its links, but with Twitter itself.

Meanwhile, BitChute called Twitter out for hypocrisy over the company’s recent criticism of those who limit interoperability as a way to entrench their market position and sabotage competition – saying that Twitter is now doing the very same thing.

YouTube has deleted over 800,000 videos that contradict the World Health Organization

The World Health Organization states that the distance to be kept between people should be 1 meter or about 3 feet. This runs contrary to all the 6' distance mandates in the US. Have You Tube tell every business in America to adjust to the 3' standard or be cancelled.

Ain't gonna happen, their deletions are simply based on YouTube's feelings not any fixed WHO guidance.

I've never seen this enforced anywhere. Or the ridiculous one way down a grocery aisle arrows. I'll go down whatever flipping aisle I feel like in whatever direction that optimizes my time getting in and out of the store. All the one way things just keep more people in the store longer than necessary spitting covid everywhere (lol) and force you down aisles you'd never have gone down. Very clever actually to try and increase sales whoever was the first to think of it.

Free speech friendly video sharing platforms

Use a provider that's not controlled by a Big Tech giant and that supports free expression.

As YouTube continues to censor, these alternatives are rising up to empower viewers and creators. Use them. Tell friends and family about them. Tell creators to use them.

https://3speak.tv/

https://d.tube/

https://bittube.tv/

https://www.brighteon.com/

https://tv.gab.com/

https://rumble.com/

https://www.bitchute.com/

https://odysee.com/

https://altcensored.com/

Of course the problem with having so many alternatives is exactly that they are fragmented.

Maybe there should be a search engine that looks for videos on all those, but never on YouTube.
