The Best Free Online Video Hosting Sites

Updated on May 11, 2014

Best Free Video hosting online

Beyond YouTube - The best video hosts...

Here's the situation - you have an incredibly funny, shocking, or useful video stuck on your computer or camera phone, and have no way to post it online to share with the world. Well, young Speilberg, you're in luck. Hosting videos online has never been easier or free-er.

This lens will help connect you with quick and simple services that carry the bandwidth burden of your videos for you, as you become the next web video star.

Free Video Hosts online sites - Free Video Hosting Online - Turning internet TV into a reality

Based on what you need from a host, choose the service that best fits you. Or, just go bananas and post your video on all of them! Its free so why not.

Video Editing Software - Prep your videos for web hosting

These software packages allow you to produce a professionally made video with the vast amount of manipulation techniques. Use this software before uploading any videos to a video hosting website for maximum effectiveness, better ratings and ultimately success.

Share Content More Effectively With These Online Video Hosting Tips

Sharing content online is one of the fastest ways to connect with hundreds or possibly even thousands of people all over the world, but when it comes to publishing this type of content, you might quickly find that it is a lot trickier than publishing HTML. There are many reasons why this is the case; what are you going to do with files that are simply too large for a platform, or in the event that your video simply attracts too many visitors and your site is suddenly overwhelmed? By planning ahead, you can ensure your videos stay right where you put them; on the net for everyone to view.

Putting Your Hosting Into Professional Hands

If you don’t want to deal with all of the hassle that comes along with hosting a video (or possibly even a blog of videos), you might want to consider putting this into the hands of a professional. There are companies that will allow you the chance to host your videos via their platforms and because they are in control, they’ll take care of things like security and issues with site maintenance. While you might have to pay a bit more for the privilege, isn’t it worth it knowing that you won’t be up until all hours of the morning trying to figure out how your site got hacked?

Upload and Go

The best thing about professionally-run platforms is the fact that they allow customers to upload their videos quickly and easily, and they’ll even go the extra mile in helping you to track your viewers; all-in-all, they take the stress out of video hosting.

      You are quite right to feature video editing software on a video hosting sites lens. Too many videos I've seen on Youtube don't even do basic editing like diting out garbage, let alone add special effects. video editing software consioderably enhances the quality of almost any video. BTW - how come you didn't list Pinnacle Studio? Lots of great features with an intuitive interface which makes for an easy learning curve.

      Hey, I always say that video is one of the best traffic generation methods online!

      Given the load of work online entrepreneurs have to deal with, creating a nice video that will constantly bring new visitors to our website should be a no-brainer, right?

      This needs to be updated. Yahoo! does NOT provide an "uploading" service, so it is NOT a hosting service. Grouper no longer exists and is now called "Crackle", which does NOT offer uploading or hosting either.

      Yes, outdated list. the Best Video Site by far is TheFreeStyleLife.com or TheFreeStyleLife. It cuts through the clutter and provides the most interesting films as I have kids and a busy life to seek this out. The site provides the best user experience by allowing all content to be purchased with just a click and can access it on my phone, ipad, and my kid's Xbox (I tried this last night). It also has a feature that recommends other videos that I like based around my previous videos viewed and I believe search. Through the site, I was able to share and recommend to my finance friends the film Margin Call.
