    Ever since YouTube required a Google account sometime last year, I have been locked out of my YouTube page, unable to sign in. I do NOT want to create a Google account.

    So, what is the alternative? Is there another similar video sharing site?

    Nothing really comes to mind, youtube is easy to work with. I know a lot of people don't like it, but like I said an alternative doesn't quickly come to mind.....

    The safest most secure way is to simply have your own disk space through a Hosting provider. I use Blue Host. For very cheap you can have unlimited disk space to upload videos and pictures on your own account. You also buy your domain name like adwex.com

    You would have to create a web page as an interface but that is easy too.

    People have no idea just how bad Google is with your information you unknowingly give them as they follow your every move on the internet.

    I'm looking for something easier, and free. I don't need unlimited space.

    The "New World Order" is here to stay.. You can't fart without somebody knowing about it.. the CIA/FBI/Homeland security in the US and they're all in bed with the same across the pond.. All the sheep are in the pen my friend and they all know I just mentioned them here too.. I've been studying it for years.. You'll be happier if you know nothing and don't think about it..I've been banned from Facebook for posting true information against these powers that make me sick and am a standing member of the library of congress in DC..
    Google is a member of the Bilderberg group. Many of whom are the biggest banks that own the world and even ordered Gadafi killed for not following orders and trying to mint real money instead paper backed by nothing and like every other war was based on lies..One of these banks being the US Federal Reserve that is no more Federal than Fedex.

    Even in our school history class in the US we were told the civil war was against slavery when it was really about the European banks trying to take power here and were the ones financing the south..

    Ignorance is bliss..:)

    No, "bliss" is an alternative to YouTube. Spare me the politics and conspiracies.

    I use Vimeo for mine. Much better quality video, and (right or wrong) if I use a song over a home video I took they don't take it down. The down side here is it doesn't seem to embed.

    Because Google can more easily track your internet activity if you have an account with them.

    You know they're collecting a massive database of people's activity, don't you? This is not a conspiracy theory, it's true.

    What Zen said above is true too...he basically is agreeing with you, he just went into it a little more than you did.

    I didn't create this thread to discuss the "new world order", I just want an alternative to YouTube.
