    Default An Alternative to Youtube called VIDME

    Vid.me is becoming popular partly due to Youtube seemingly trying to censor things such as Pizzagate:

    Thank you, the collective of the world needs an alternative to YouTube. There are incredibly obvious issues with YouTube that makes the collective waste their time. Things like having to redo sorting on every search, things like not finding anything new because everything new is just tons of copies of existing stuff, things like various ad tricks like putting really dramatic topics on videos showing old content marketed as new on the start page dashboard, lack of RSS support on search result, conspiratory copyright requests resulting in removed content for no good reason, gradual increase in total ad exposure, allowing what appears to be bot based channel content copying with ads and much more. YouTube is great in many ways too, and will continue to be so, but there are things at play here that makes YouTube too exposed to too many for some of the limitations they have to live with for years, competition is good to force YouTube take more logical action towards the masses rather than always leaning towards the most ad generating solutions. Logical steps towards feature enriching the portal becomes a responsibility that YouTube in its great position, needs to prioritize. It's obvious what is the right thing to do in this case.

    Here is vid.me's "F#cking Awesome" ad in response to Youtube censorship.

    https://vid.me/KEnH

    Now Administrators, would it possible to add a "Vid Me" button by the Google Video and Youtube button on the "Quick Reply" window????

    Itís Happening! More Big YouTubers Switching to Vid.me

    LOL, YouTube. You banned Reality Calls, one of the top researchers digging into Clinton Foundation tax problems and PizzaGate. You issued me a content violation strike on a video that violated no terms, which means I can no longer livestream to my audience on YouTube. You randomly stripped monetization from some of my research videos, which took a long time to investigate, vet, and produce. Youíre censoring and deleting comments without usersí permission. Iíve been told countless times youíre also dropping my subscribers, and they have to re-subscribe when they log back into YouTube.

    Who needs treatment like this?

    Enough is enough.

    Iíll continue to post my work here for now ó the Google/YouTube audience is undoubtedly massive ó but I no longer feel welcome. And my viewers should know that Iíd prefer they watch all of my work over on Vidme instead, and comment over there instead. Begin migrating. Itís a very nice site. Iíll be viewing the comments section on both sites for a while, but over time will be dedicating more and more of my time to growing the Vidme.

    I donít like dishonesty. I donít like censorship. Both of which YouTube has exhibited during the election season, and after. Letís give NEW platforms like Gab.ai and Vid.me a shot at leastóTwitter and YouTube have lost the public trust. And for full disclosure, I am not an investor in either project.

    Everyone should find an alternative to YouTube, Face Book, Twitter, Google or any of the mainstream sell-outs!

    Why not start by getting rid of the wrap-tag here in the Avalon Forum for YouTube vids.

    My expectation is that, over time, HTML5, with its native support in "modern" browsers for the <VIDEO>*.MP4</VIDEO> operator, will replace Youtube and its variants.

    Presently we depend on Youtube and such to provide the video decoders and display code. Each web page that has an embedded Youtube video requires about 500 MBytes of Javascript from the Youtube website in order to present the video(s) to the user. Once the major browsers have native support for displaying MP4 video, then video can be handled just as text, html, jpeg, png, gif and other file formats are handled now. Such files are stored on whatever web server wants to offer them, and can be read or viewed by whatever browser downloads them, without additional code from some third party site (such as, in present times, Youtube).

    The near monopoly that a Youtube has on supporting embedded video in web pages vanishes once all major browsers can display any standard MP4 formatted video file, downloaded from any web server, and most web servers are running software that can handle the uploading, sharing, cross-linking, and native display of MP4 video files, using the HTML5 <VIDEO>*.MP4</VIDEO> operator.

    As to what Project Avalon might do, we lack the programming bandwidth to do much, past what comes pretty much packaged and ready to use, with whatever webserver software we're using, which for the last six years has been vBulletin version 4. We will almost certainly not make any significant upgrades to our handling of video until when, if ever, we undertake a major upgrade of the Avalon server software to a newer software base that has native builtin HTML5 support for such things as MP4 video.

    Here's another possible alternative to YT. It's called BitChute. It's just started up and works by using torrent technology.

    https://www.bitchute.com

    James Corbett talks about it in this video as well as some other social media options.

    10 years ago, everybody was on MySpace. 10 years from now, the Twitters and Facebooks and YouTubes of today will be dinosaurs, abandoned by users sick of censorship and centralized control. Thankfully, the alternatives to these social media dinosaurs are already here, and they're blockchain-based, torrent friendly, decentralized and censorship resistant.

    Yes - Bitchute.com looks interesting. It's just in its infancy, but well worth following.

    Presently Bitchute does not embed into Avalon pages, so their videos can only be linked, as in this link to the Bitchute variant of the Corbett Report Youtube video you posted: https://www.bitchute.com/video/XhactAB37YI/
