Even though YouTube is undoubtedly the most popular Video site on the internet, there have been times in which I wish there were an alternative, or some changes made to to it.
How many times have you clicked on a video you really wanted to see from some search results only to stumble upon an annoying red message saying that the video has been removed or no longer available?
Thanks to Michael Arrington from TechCrunch, you now have a small, yet reliable, list of alternatives for videos that infringe copyrights:
Full length copies of well known TV shows and/or movies are readily available on a number of YouTube competitors. Watch, for example, The Office on DailyMotion
, Scrubs on GoFish , or SouthPark on Veoh (update: GoFish and Veoh have apparently removed the shows I linked to).
And if searching for the shows on these sites is just too much work, there are other sites that aggregate and organize this content, and embed it on their own sites. Watch any episode from any of the 11 seasons of SouthPark on Allsp.com
. And new site VideoHybrid is in a class of its own, with dozens of full length movies and virtually every popular TV show. VideoHybrid even gives statistics showing exactly how many times copyrights have been violated.
So, which copyright video are you going to see first? I went to see Linkin Park’s latest video.
