These are 10 popular Video sharing websites.

1. YouTube - This is one of the popular video hosting and sharing network. It has millions of page views per minute. It also hosts some of the most largest collection of videos in almost every niche.

2. Vimeo - This is more of private video sharing network. The free plan has limitations for video storage and streaming. Paid plans are liberal with their offering.

3. DailyMotion - This is more of a clone of Youtube. Most of the content is scraped off youtube and shown here. The video quality is subpar and streaming is not good at all. Creators have no plan of making money off this network. So not many original creators.

4. MetaCafe - This is another network that curates the videos from other popular websites. It is often down due to too many server requests. Not reliable for hosting videos.

5. Vine - This video network is full of people sharing humor and other random videos. Most of the videos into this are in list format or best or top types. It has lot of traffic. Though not many people make money from it as they don't have any ad sharing feature.

6. Twitch - This is network for the gamers. So if you are playing game online and wish to stream your game play. Then this is the network for you. Only limited to gamers and the gaming review type of channels or creators. No other topics are allowed or possible to stream.

7. Archive.org - Archive is more of a project that stores videos which people want to archive for longer time. There are some historical videos and also some random public videos being stored.

8. TV.com videos - Most of the TV channel updates and trailers are posted here. Not many public submissions are visible on the site. So it seems less of public sharing and more of corporate sharing website.

9. Stupid Videos - This is public video network focused on humor and other funny videos. It has large collection of funny videos hosted on their network. It has user account section from where you can upload the videos.

10. Flicrkr Videos - Though it doesn't give you much space for the videos. You can upload your mobile or DSLR videos on their network. Not much of streaming and sharing friendly as of yet. But it seems they are just testing the feature for the Pro accounts.

These are 10 video sharing websites that you can try out. There are many other niche based video networks. However most of the networks out there have specific niche and geographic focus.
