1. YouTube

YouTube is by far the most popular video hosting website, and for good reason. It is easy to search and offers wonderful analytic tools for users. Some downfalls are its limitations on video size, length and format. Some also feel that it is such a large community that your videos can easily get lost in the shuffle.

2. Vimeo

Vimeo is the other well known video hosting website. It has a reputation for being more professional and refined than YouTube. This may be a good outlet for professional video editors, production houses or independent film makers who are looking for a reliable site to serve as a host to a resume of work.

3. Blip.tv 

Blip is actually more of an online television station that it is an online video host. This site would be a great alternative to YouTube if you have a web series or weekly show. People can subscribe to shows, much like a DVR, and watch them on a weekly basis. If your show is picked to be featured on Blip, you will receive 50 percent of the profits of your show!

4. DailyMotion

DailyMotion is a really fun and clean site that most people have sadly never heard of. Their headquarters are based in France, but they have 32 localized versions of their site to offer a user friendly experience no matter where in the world you work. Registration and sign in are easy and free and you’ll have access to millions of videos ranging from home movies to blockbuster trailers.

5. Megavideo

With a free subscription on Megavideo you can have unlimited video storage, video streaming priority and access to Megavideo’s sister sites, Megapix and Megalive. The only catch is that advertisements will be tacked on to the end of all of your videos. The nice thing about this site is that you can also store things like presentations and slide shows, so it may be well suited for a business professional or teacher.
