Metacafe isn't better than YouTube, Daily Motion, or any of the other video-sharing websites that I have visited. Sometimes the videos on the site have problems playing on my Android phone. But what especially irks me about Metacafe is that its "report video" feature is practically useless. If you report a video for copyright infringement, nothing happens. No response from the admin. This is compared to YouTube, Daily Motion, and Nico Nico videos where you are redirected to a copyright complaint form and asked questions by the admin that will help them determine if your copyright claim is valid. If it weren't for this fact, I would give Metacafe a 3 star rating because it is not otherwise horrible. But since the difficulty in getting videos that infringe on copyright removed is a big problem, I can only give it a 2 star rating.
I don't like this video sharing website because all videos are not available on this platform.
I feel like metacafe could do better. It isn't completely intuitive the way you navigate through the website, and it isn't by any means a youtube killer. One thing it does have over youtube is the metacafe pro feature that allows you to download videos from the site. Other than that, the website's player is lacking, and navigating through different videos is a pain.
MetaCafe is kind of like Youtube but better curated and more fun. It is an online video sharing community where users can contribute content. Most content is in short-film video format. Other users can rate it, review it and spread it on the metacafe network. There are movie trailers, game trailers, music reviews, sports and all the usual categories. The quality of videos is better. The website layout is a bit cluttered but it does not interfere with the video viewing. One can kill hours on metacafe and connect it with your facebook account to make it more even more social.
