Online video platforms allow users to upload, share videos or live stream their own videos to the Internet. These can either be for the general public to watch, or particular users on a shared network. The most popular video hosting website is YouTube, with 1.8 billion logged-in users per month and the most extensive catalog of online videos.[1] There are some countries in the world which place restrictions on YouTube, so some of these respective countries have their own regional video sharing websites.

White-label providers[edit]

White-label providers sell the technology to various parties that allow them to create the services of the aforementioned "User Generated Video Sharing" websites with the client's brand. Just as Akamai and other companies host and manage video/image/audio for many companies, these white-labels "host video content." Many of these companies also offer their own user-generated video sharing website both for commercial purposes and to show off their platform. Websites in this category include:

Enterprise providers[edit]

Listed here are video hosting providers exclusively serving businesses wanting to share video content internally with employees or externally with customers, partners, or prospects. Features may include limiting access to authenticated users, tracking of user actions, integration with single sign-on services and a lack of the advertisements normally present on public sites. Among sites in this category are:

Open source[edit]

Web-based video editing[edit]

Web-based video editing sites generally offer the "user generated video sharing" website in addition to some form of editing application. Some of these applications simply allow the user to crop a video into a smaller clip. Other services have invested much time and effort into replicating the same functionality that has previously only been available via Windows Movie Maker, iMovie and other client-side applications that run outside of a web page. Some of these applications are based in AJAX and others in Flash. Some of these websites may additionally offer downloadable editors; however, this is not a desktop- but a web-based video editor list. Websites in this category include:
