    Hey Ya'll!

    Looking to start filming some videos to share with the community. Instead of uploading to my personal youtube account, I'd like to upload the video to an anonymous site which doesn't require a login to upload videos.

    Can anyone suggest a good site?

    If you want true anonymity you will need to use something like TOR to upload to a new youtube account...an account which you only access through TOR, if you need an email to register the youtube account you will need to create the email account over TOR as well.

    Video sites that you don't have to login to upload are not what you're looking for.

    Ok, well I'm not using Youtube. Google's old "don't be evil" mantra is long gone. I won't use them for uploading video. Any other suggestions for alternative video hosting sites?

    Too connected to everything else google-related. As a digital marketing director, I know only a fraction of information they have access to, and even what I know scares the hell out of me

    I'd much rather use a 3rd party video site not owned by google so it's harder to establish any relationship based on ip addresses or other meta-data available (I like to cover my tracks without rasing unnecessary questions such as why the person is using the TOR network)

    Youtube/Google is best because it has the highest traffic which means you can hide in plain sight, TOR is there so you don't have to worry about your IP being traced or unnecessary questions(which wont happen anyway).

    By comparison, a site offering anonymous uploading is not safe, you have to separate the uploading part from the anonymity part to be truly anonymous(even the file hosting site doesn't know who you are) ...for the anonymity part only TOR is worth using.

    Oh look its only anonymous if using TOR ..which means you may as well go with TOR and Youtube ...more traffic > less traffic.

    It is also anonymous, in the sense that Google Analytics does not get your info, if you do not set your Do Not Track flag. http://donottrack.us/ No need to use TOR for that. (although you may have other reasons to use TOR)

    I use YouTube, but my account is private. Meaning you need the link to see the vids. I only link them here so it is like " invitation only". Doesn't stop others from sharing the link.

    It depends on how much you trust Google

    As for DNT:

    Effectiveness
    There are no legal or technological requirements for its use. As such, websites and advertisers may either honour the request, or completely ignore it. The Digital Advertising Alliance does not require its members to honor DNT signals. "The Council of Better Business Bureaus and the Direct Marketing Association will not sanction or penalize companies or otherwise enforce with respect to DNT signals set on IE10 or other browsers."
    -----------------

    I won't be repeating my earlier advice ..horses led to water etc

    All I did was make an email account at mail.com with fake name and everything, then created a vimeo account with that email addy. Sure they could trace my ip if they got a warrant issued to my isp, but I'm a minnow in a big ocean if you get my drift.
