It's very, very simple: video hosting costs a lot. Somebody has to pay for it. If viewers and creators aren't paying, who will? If you answer this question with advertising, then the site has to cater companies that want to sell stuff nobody wants instead of people interested in online video. That's a way to provide the service "gratis" and to grow the expectancy that online video should be free of charge, which is bad for the competition. Vimeo, Niconico, all B2B services do it well with a different plan, Vidme tried that and failed, BitChute works around it, VidLii works around it. With a limit of 15 minutes playtime, you can never have anything serious on this site. It makes a lot of sense to actively hinder growth and stay in the niche, but who knows where the money will come from to fund this collection of short clips. YouTube won't go under any time soon, and be it just because of it's value as a massive video library. Except a financial crash forces them to pull the plug.

1. OK, I guess one can fund such endeavor out of money from a dayjob, but that'll be a limit to growth if the site isn't self-sustaining. 2. Good idea, if people actually donate. I think it's a honorable activity to educate people that they're supposed to pay voluntarily for their consumption, without forcing them to pay up. Barely works for Wikipedia, we need more of it. 3. The problem with ads despite the adpocalypse is that one day advertisers will find out that nobody buys their products, might only work for brand building.

Regarding the 15 minute limit, as you say and do, people eventually start to split longer videos into several parts. If they do so, what's the difference to allowing them to upload the full length in one piece? Especially if the site has autoplay-playlists anyway? Doesn't make a difference in terms of storage, but is a worse experience for the user, except the operators want to discourage longer works and encourage short clips, until the day there's a tool that splits and uploads long videos automatically, and then one might get all the hour-long Minecraft Let's Plays nobody watches. Is there already such a tool and if not, why not make one?

I found out about this site through a YouTube comment just recently. I've been exploring almost the whole night! I think this site has it good so far. Reminds me of the good old days ya know?

Heck I even got some videos up on my channel.
I'm really excited to be a part of this site and community. Wishing for the best

Vidlii seems great to me. Vidme messed up and refused to let anyone say anything bad about the site even if it was ways to improve.
