5 best YouTube app alternatives for Android

5 best YouTube app alternatives for Android
So you've probably heard of this video sharing website called YouTube. You must have – it is the third most popular website in the world after all. Having this in mind, it comes as no surprise that the stock YouTube client is one of Android's most widely used applications. 

But a perfect app it is not. Sometimes videos played in Android's YouTube client fail to load or might stutter at a random point. Also, the app can't let you have your videos playing in the background, as many surely wish it could. 

Thankfully, there are alternatives to Google's YouTube app. Some are pretty decent, others are not really worth your time. Of course, we focused on the former kind to come up with a list of 5 best alternatives to Android's stock YouTube application. Check them out and tell us which one you like best!

Agreed. Vevo is one giant commercial like YouTube is. I wish videos played as quickly and clearly as the commercials.

The official app has issues since long time ago, i don't get why they haven't fixed it yet.

And all these are inferior to McTube on iOS. Shame that Android has worst clients of its own service (Metrotube on WP is also better). And official apps are garbage, both on iOS and Android.

BgTube on Android is better you just open it (YouTube) and can minimize your screen/turn it off and it continues to run you don't need to send videos to it. There's a direct download on the developers site Londonnut.com/apps

etrendbuzz.com is in my top 3. Its A very new video-sharing website. Allows users to upload HD quality unlimited videos.via URL,Embed or by file. It’s my top 3 because I chose to have the piracy not as strict as other sites. since their aren't any royalties from video ads I allow users to upload thier own material. If you have a choreography video and you have a song by usher in the background your video you will not get removed for copyright like some other sites. Highly recommended if you prefer less strict guidelines. Also free membership accounts with unlimited bandwidth. Many categories to choose from.

Not a very good list. This, either, means that there are not any admin level access management apps, for YT , with Android, or that you just picked a lousy list. I will give benefit and lean toward the former.. Which begs the question, why is it so? As anything that can be done, with a pc, can be done with Android, net-wise, since desktop mode is available and any steps required to get to the location u wish, in a pc, within YT, can be done without the e d user HAVING to go INTO desktop mode, why is such a large necessity for YT content providers not one of the first YT apps created, by whomever
