    Any sites like Youtube that are still good?

    I spend a ton of time on Youtube, but recently they have done incredibly stupid things that make me dislike the site. =\

    -making it so 80% of the screen is taken up but things you aren't interested in
    -irremovable featured channels and videos
    -no friends list
    -even more ads x.x (there were already a ton of ads so wtf?)
    -crappy looking new channel layouts.

    Basically I am just looking for a Social Media site that hasn't taken the Social out of Social Media. =\

    -Full screen?
    -Ignore them? if you know what you want to watch then who cares about that stuff
    -Same as above but remember they make their money off of ads you wouldn't wanna pay for youtube now would ya
    -Matter of opinion but yeah I don't really see the need to change them so often


    And to your question none that I know of, I know of plenty of video sites but if you hate youtube you'll hate em all

    Well I'm just hating how its going to get worse and worse with even more ads as time goes on.

    I have like 3 different ad blockers and I am still plagued by ads.

    Also the no friends list things pretty annoying =\

    He didn't really ask for your opinion on his own. But thanks for sharing.

    I can't say that you'll find a better alternative than Youtube to be honest.

    I don't think youtube was ever a "social media" site. I'm rather glad they're moving back to reinforce their roots of being a video hosting site, instead of being a faux facebook.

    That being said, vimeo > youtube.

    None of what was said was opinion, get a clue mate. Oh and, thanks for you amazing contribution to this thread.





    Oh and Lightgil I thought youtube did have a friends list?

    What kind of videos you looking for in particular, because I know quite a few sites but generally for specific types, like gaming, vlogs, fights etc

    Remove adds with Mozilla Browser + AddBlock Plus addon (I don't even knew there were any Youtube adds)

    as has been said, grab firefox and adblockplus, guess it filters out the ads on videos too, hmm, wonder if any of my videos have ads, or do i have to "apply" or be asked /shrug
