What are the best apps similar to youtube?

YouTube is pretty the de facto video sharing and consumption site today with an estimated 2 billion users as of 2019. Having said that, we would like to take you guys on a little stroll down history and see just how the popular video website got started. YouTube came from humble beginnings and was created by 3 PayPal employees. These three were Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim. Its "HQ" was located above a pizzeria and Japanese resto in San Mateo, California. They made it as a video-sharing website where users could upload, share, and view their content and others. Its Internet domain name, www.youtube.com, want live on February 14, 2005. In fact, YouTube's first video was of co-founder Jawed Karim at the San Diego Zoo and it was titled "Me at the zoo". The company was initially angel-funded but soon received its first big investment from Sequoia Capital.

YouTube was one of the fastest-growing sites on the web at the time that led to its first major marketing and advertising partnership with NBC. YouTube was acquired by Google for $1.65 billion back in 2006. The now Google-owned video-sharing site just continued to grow. From then on, it started to shift not just from its website but also to its mobile YouTube app. Today, YouTube has near-global coverage but there are still a few where it's not available yet or is blocked. This is where alternatives come in. Unblocked websites to watch videos are one example of this. Another would be alternative YouTube apps. To help you guys out, check out some of the best apps similar to YouTube so you can continue to enjoy watching videos online.

    "I have been a long time fan of 9gag. I use to use them when they only had the website. Now that they have the app its been a staple on all my phones. Just love the layout and the new section where every morning i open it up and see what has been posted the night before. All around a very fun app, there is always something new to browse thru."

    "The app is very good for music, but there are quite a few drawbacks. I usually listen on my phone only and it gets annoying as you can't keep listening to music when the phone is in "sleep" mode, when I go off the app, etc. So I would much rather use Pandora or Spotify."

    "Great website but charges you the more you upload. Vimeo is also incredibly strict when it comes to content. Adult content and anything that's harder than PG-13 seems to get removed."
