I prefer vimeo's video sharing services over youtube. Youtube has not been the same since the days of Chad Hurley and Steve Chen running the company - Beta Youtube knew the importance of growing a community is good customer service. I think one time I even got a reply email from Steve directly about a question I had about youtube.
Since google has taken over, they have lost the ability to connect with its users with good old fashion customer service. Taking away services or shutting down channels without an explanation - just a blanket statement why they took the action they took. I understand to an extent it is easy to handle the masses, but to be unable to restate a channel for months will lead to a community of video sharers to just on the next best service the comes around.
I highly recommend Vimeo. They are geared to content markets and overall just a better experience with its users. You will not have the traffic like youtube (yet) but a great place to host your content for free. There are some paid services. Maybe youtube needs to follow their lead to learn about it's customer base.
I just came across GNU MediaGoblin. I am looking forward to their progress and will definitely promote them. I love their mission and hope they keep their vision.
GNU MediaGoblin (also shortened to MediaGoblin or GMG) is a free, decentralized Web platform (server software) for hosting and sharing many forms of digital media; and strives to provide an extensible, federated, and freedom-respectful software alternative to major media publishing services such as Flickr, deviantArt, YouTube, etc. Read More
