    Default Posting Private Video's Online to share with family

    Good morning, I have a YouTube account but am contemplating to leave them and find another site that allows me to upload my private holiday video(s) that have music in them that are copyright protected material, so YouTube has now blocked it for overseas family to view. The video's are not available in the search and are only accessible if I provide the link to my family. My question is, is there a YouTube equivalent website out there that would allow me to share my video's with family?? I have googled and I saw a site called Vimeo, but its basically the same. Thanks in advance

    I was going to suggest Vimeo. Another option for videos (and photos) is Flickr.


    Both have free and paid options. They’d be the big ones that aren’t google or facepalm.

    Hi, thanks for the reply, it suggested Vimeo only could upload a certain amount of GB, the biggest holiday video is about 3.54GB and three hours long lol... I have had a Flickr account in the past, might look at this again

    Flicker only can upload to 1gb at the time, its main use is photo's rather then video's, thanks anyway for the suggestion

    You can try Google Drive - it has a limit of 15GB and you can share with whom ever you want. Not to sure if theres a file upload size or not. You can play (stream) Videos directly from it or download.

    Microsofts Onedrive is the same, but only 5GB for the Free version, BUT I think theres a single file limit.

    I use Onedrive for vid's etc,sure it has a 5 GB limit but just get them to download the files when they sync

    Just delete the previous ones and renew with new ones
