In search of a free video sharing provider without phone

Postby TheEagle » Mon Nov 15, 2021 5:00 pm

Hi all,
I'm searching a way to share FG videos on the forum, and later maybe I will also add one or two on the wiki. I have tried both Youtube and Vimeo. YouTube is no option for me as I don't have a phone and found no way to sign up without. I have signed up on Vimeo, but sadly they provide only 5GB of total storage for free which won't last forever - if you want more, you have to pay which I cannot afford. So maybe one of you knows about another good possibility to share videos ?

Signing up for Google accounts (which also work with YouTube) works on desktop last time I checked...?
There are free alternatives to (almost) every program you encounter. You just have to find them.

Yes, but you need to enter a phone number which a code is sent to which you then have to enter in the account creation form. This is not possible for me because I do not have a phone. I've tried out several online virtual phone number providers, but either Google told me the number cant be used for signup or the SMS never arrived.

Maybe LBRY would work for you?

Looks good, but for every upload you have to spend a little bit of their own crypto currency, and you can only earn some new if you verify your account - either by SMS :mrgreen: or by entering your credit card number. And what if I don't have any of the two ? :roll:

I think I've found the perfect website - Dailymotion. It has unlimited storage which you pay with a little ad blended in at the end of the video - so if you don't want it, you can just skip it. I hope I can embed that here ? :?

You can, if you add the video ID like:
Code: Select all
