    "The next best option to consider if you're looking for a good video sharing site. The site's rules and regulations are more lenient compared to YouTube and there is no limit to the length of videos that you can upload. You're limited to 1080p videos though."

    "A good video sharing site that started out as a portal for filmmakers to share their work. It has a 500MB size limit per week but for a small fee, you can increase this to 5GB. Give it a try."
