Babelgum has been around from 2005. And over time they have assimilated over 20,000 videos by independent producers. Unlike YouTube, Babelgum does not restrict the upload on the size of the content. So if you have quality videos of huge sizes, Babelgum could be a better alternative.
And for professional videographers & film makers, there is also the option of making money by showcasing your videos in a full screen, streaming, broadcast quality to a world wide audience.
