Dailymotion is one of the most famous free video streaming and uploading platforms. Like YouTube, Dailymotion is also free and is practically unlimited in terms of content. The unlimited content is simply because of the fact that there is not one content creator, but unlimited content creators. Anyone with a Dailymotion account can start uploading the videos and open it up for others to view it.
