Top Ten Video Sharing Websites
Ease of Use: 30 out of 30
File size/Storage limitations: 26 out of 30
Other Stuff: 35 out of 40
Total Score: 91 out of 100
Paris-based Dailymotion pulled a bit of an upset over YouTube in our rankings because of the site's no-frills approach to uploading (you can send video via Webcam, mobile phone, Dailymotion's Website, or via email) and its plentiful (and functional) video distribution options.
There's a little bit of a mystery regarding the site. We're not sure how the site's backed, who's in charge, nor if it's even a viable business. But one thing is clear: Even with a French accent, video sharing can be a simple, painless process, and Dailymotion sets the bar pretty high.
The site scored perfectly in the ease-of-use department, but we knocked it for file size limitations, no editing features, and the fact that you couldn't keep a video private while sending it to a different site or blog – a feature other sites pull off. Nonetheless, as its rise in popularity in the U.S. attests, Dailymotion is an exceptional site.
