Once you’ve made your Music Video you have to think about how to get it out to the people. Online is the first place to go, and there’s plenty of platforms out there. The de facto YouTube is always a good place to start, and the first site people think of. Thing is, there are other video sites that have better flexibility and offer many interesting features that could help you out.
Rather than trying to upload your video to every video site you can find, here are 5 Top YouTube alternatives we’ve whittled out for Music Videos.
Made by video creators and film makers for uploading creative content. This means your going to avoid your typical Justin Bieber/lolcatz/sneezing panda type stuff, and instead get much higher quality video work. The interface is clean and well presented. There is a much greater community feel also than with Youtube, you’ll find comments to be constructive. Videos can be uploaded at HD, and all types of ratios and formats are supported. Overall, a very solid platform. Vimeo content also plays really well on iPads and iPhones thanks to its html5 support.
