How It Works
Watch YouTube Normally
When the algorithm suggests a video you can't resist or your friend sends you a link right to a YouTube video you really must watch TubeShift is looking for other places the video might be.
Use The Force
TubeShift sits in your browser toolbar and if the same video is known about from another video website TubeShift will show you by turning red, white and blue.
Prepare To Shift
Clicking on the TubeShift icon will show you the other places the video has been found. You'll even get a thumbnail of the videos so you can make sure it is exactly the same video you are looking at now.
Same Thing, Less YouTube
TubeShift only shows you official alternates of videos so you don't have to worry about fakes, low quality pirated copies, or spam. The highest quality video websites are supported by TubeShift so you don't have to watch a blocky mess either.
Nothing to Hide
TubeShift respects your privacy and does not spy on you. During operation anonymous information about videos you are watching is sent to the TubeShift servers but only the bare minimum information is sent that allows TubeShift to function at all.
TubeShift does not advertise to you and your anonymous information is never sold to anyone else.
See For Yourself
The TubeShift Extension is an open-source software project so you can look and check for yourself that TubeShift does not spy on you. The packages that are sent to the browser extension stores are identical to the open-source version and you can verify that yourself too.
Test It Out
After you have installed the TubeShift browser extension you can test it out with these YouTube videos:
Vitus Bering and the European Discovery of Alaska
It wasn’t until the 18th century that Russia decided to explore their Pacific coast, sending a Danish explorer
to map the furthest reaches of their dominion, and determine whether or not Asia and the Americas were connected.
That Danish explorer’s name was very nearly lost to history, and while you might recognize his name today, you probably
have never heard his story.

TubeShift does not rely on advertising to fund itself, it does not charge the users or the publishers, and there are no plans to do so. Generating revenue off of TubeShift was never the point.
There are real costs associated with running the TubeShift servers and creating any piece of technology is a very time consuming activity. If you find TubeShift useful or if you would like to support the team in their quest to return free speech to the Internet then please donate.
Your funds will go to covering the costs of the servers and help us get closer to our goals of creating technology to support free speech. We would love to be able to put all of our effort into supporting free speech and publishers under threat of censorship.
Your support is greatly appreciated!
