There’s no doubt about it: On-de­mand video stream­ing is the wave of the now, let alone the fu­ture, and that’s the wave your con­tent needs to catch. But be­fore you can sell your cre­ation to Net­flix, Hulu or Ama­zon (or hope to re­coup your costs a dol­lar at a time through iTunes sales), you need to get “out there.” Here, we of­fer a run­down of the top sites to share your work, gain trac­tion and maybe pick up a lit­tle rev­enue while you do it.

Ba­si­cally the by-word for video host­ing, the Google sub­sidiary of­fers ease of use for con­tent pro­duc­ers and a huge po­ten­tial au­di­ence. The Cre­ators re­sources help you get started and keep grow­ing. Videos can be up­loaded in a range of def­i­ni­tions, up to 8K as of last sum­mer, and viewed by peo­ple all over the world (ex­clud­ing China, Iran and Turk­menistan), with lo­cal­ized site in­ter­faces in 76 dif­fer­ent lan­guages.

The pre­ferred site for an­i­ma­tion and VFX artists to show off their lat­est work, reels and shorts is rolling out 4K ca­pa­bil­ity this year and has a Cre­ator Ser­vices depart­ment in place to help you mon­e­tize con­tent. TipJar has been re­tired, but Vimeo of­fers pay-to-view to Pro mem­bers, and the Brand Cre­ative Fund en­cour­ages ad­ver­tis­ers to pay com­mu­nity mem­bers for orig­i­nal branded con­tent.

Started in France, Dai­ly­mo­tion has suc­cess- fully ex­panded in­ter­na­tion­ally with 18 dif­fer­ent lan­guages avail­able and 35 lo­cal­ized sites. It re­mains among the top video plat­forms world­wide and is the most pop­u­lar site of any kind in Europe. Vivendi’s re­cent ac­qui­si­tion means this global takeover can only con­tinue. $$$: Ad­ver­tis­ing, Paid Con­tent, Web­site

Mon­e­ti­za­tion

The on­line video des­ti­na­tion from Mak­erS­tu­dios Inc. is all about prop­ping up the next gen­er­a­tion of me­dia cre­atives. Cre­ators who work with the Maker Gen pro­gram get hand­son guid­ance, com­mu­nity ex­per­tise and tools to help grow their au­di­ence — and re­tain con­trol of their con­tent.

$$$: Ad­ver­tis­ing

The 2012 merger of Youku and Tu­dou com­bined two of the largest video host­ing sites in China un­der one cor­po­rate roof, but they still have dif­fer­ent per­son­al­i­ties. Tu­dou was a world pi­o­neer in im­ple­ment­ing wide scale ads on such a site and re­mains largely fo­cused on user-cre­ated con­tent, while Youku boasts over 1,500 pro­fes­sional con­tent part­ners and of­fers full TV episodes and fea­tures. But both are sub­ject to Chi­nese cen­sor­ship and a lais­sez-faire ap­proach to copy­right law.

$$$: Ad­ver­tis­ing

This smaller player has been mak­ing waves in the in­die film in­dus­try since it first cropped up a cou­ple years ago. The goal is to di­rectly con­nect view­ers and cre­ators, fo­cus­ing on the fu­ture needs of dig­i­tal film con­sumers while pro­vid­ing a cus­tomiz­able ser­vice for film­mak­ers. $$$: Paid Con­tent, Mer­chan­dise Store,

Crowd­fund­ing Com­pat­i­ble

An­other film­maker-cen­tered new­comer, Ren­der­yard is a tight-knit com­mu­nity of 6,000some mem­bers look­ing to share and sell their con­tent. The so­cial net­work­ing el­e­ments are de­signed to help users re­ceive help­ful, pro­fes­sional cri­tique and con­nect with other cre­ators. Ren­der­yard also boasts a 70/30 rev­enue split with in­stant pay­ment and a ded­i­cated an­i­ma­tion sec­tion.
