Are there better alternatives to YouTube?

Are there any alternatives to YouTube and if so, are they better than YouTube? I have a strong affinity to YouTube and I really wonder why should anyone would look for  alternatives to YouTube! What's wrong with it in the first place?

I know the existence of various other video sites but I never really spent a minute in any one of them. Nevertheless, if any one of you begin to dislike YouTube in future and thus want to look at other  alternatives to YouTube, I have listed below a few of them.


Vimeo naturally stand at the top of the YouTube alternatives. Vimeo is said to be the to introduce HD videos and this became the prime reason to become the favorite video site by movie buffs.

Metacafe occupies the second spot in the list of YouTube alternatives. I like the interface of Metacafe and is really user friendly. You can find the world's best short video content.


Crackle is the one that is liked by all for its telecast of original shows and movies. It is owned by the SONY company. .

9GAG is a site that is also in the list. I do not like its user interface and that;s why I have not written much about it, 
There is a warning about it Makeuseof.com: "Before visiting, be warned: the site contains a number of videos that are somewhat risqué and may not be safe for work."

Well, there are some more video sites but they are not alternatives to any video sites in the Internet.
