A lot of people are disliking YouTube these days. If it’s not for their ever-present "scheduled maintenance", it’s for the continually tightening grip on what is considered "acceptable" content and what isn’t. And let’s not forget that the community (and it’s a stretch to call it that) is simply awful.
There are plenty of so-so alternatives to YouTube such as DailyMotion, MetaCafe, Revver, Viddler, Vimeo and several others. But like I said, they’re so-so because the first thing that will turn you off is the interface for any of them, and the slowness will drive you up a wall.
Being that I like to see what’s out there, I found sevenload and decided to give it a shot.
In all honesty, it’s not bad at all. It’s actually fast and in some cases faster than YouTube, has far better privacy options compared to other video sites, and most importantly, it’s easy to use.
I give sevenload a thumbs up, because it’s the first YouTube alternative I’ve seen that I believe people would actually like. Try it, you may like it.
