    "I love live videos and live streams, so I gave this app a try. Wow! Some of the videos posted were intriguing to say the least, and the best part is that I can choose which one to watch from places around he world. I remember watching a video of someone giving their cat a bath. It was not a pretty sight, LOL. The comment feature is great because I also get a good laugh at what people say. Overall, this is a great app if you want to kill time and have some fun."

    "Metacafe is a video sharing website that makes finding and sharing videos fast and easy. People upload videos to the website and you can share them across multiple platforms with the click of a button. The website specializes in short-form entertainment such as movies, video games, tv, music and more. It is a user friendly website which dumbs down the process of finding and sharing videos."

    "YouTube is a fantastic place to find and share videos! If you're looking for a sketchy place to upload copyrighted videos, you'll likely have your videos removed and your account disabled. But if you're looking to spread new content, this is the place to go. If you're looking for advice to rack up views, I can't help you as I'm purely a viewer myself. My only complaint: sometimes searching in Youtube doesn't seem to list the most relevant videos first, just the most popular."

    "I needed an avenue to find and share videos and the recommendation of using Google Videos was exactly what I was looking for. Google Videos is very straight forward and allows for me to search a wide volume of videos for exactly what I need. In addition, watching the videos is very easy and has an excellent user interface, allowing me to save videos for later, bounce around the video, or share them which is ultimately what I was looking to do. I love Google Videos!"

    "I use youtube and Dailymotion and I find myself on dailymotion alot more than youtube for finding and sharing videos. The videos load faster here and I am not bombarded with ads like I am on youtube. Dailymotion is also not too strict on video content so you could find a good music video that would probably get sound muted on youtube for copyright infringement."

    "I have used Best Vines several times and found it to be enjoyable. I was able to immediately get the latest videos that circulated the internet without much problem, since this app crawls multiple Facebook pages to keep me updated. The user interface was easy to use and so far I did not experience any bugs or crashes. I can play the video right there and then, and switch to a different one with a swipe. Very convenient."

    "I am always searching for the best resources for finding and sharing videos. People at work kept talking about Twitch so I decided to give it a try. I guess it is okay if all you care about is video games and watching other people play video games. I love playing video games but I am not entertained by watching others play them. I found Twitch to be very boring and mildly annoying."
