  • [ – ] staticmesh reply As someone who has been with YouTube for most of their life, I have to say Vid.me has immense nostalgic appeal to me. It is so similar to the old-school YouTube, from the videos to the sense of community.
    • [ – ] deocreative parent reply I don't know how active users vid.me has (they say 25 million.) But it feels real "inclosed." It feels more communal to me. This is something I've never had. As I never used YouTube until 2014.
      • [ – ] staticmesh parent reply Sadly most internet communities are disappearing as everyone naturally gravitates to big sites. Look at forum boards for example -- they were huge in the 2000's but are a dying breed today.
        • deocreative parent reply If the vid.me community supports each other and we create quality content and hopefully more larger creators come to vid.me I thin this could grow into something big.
    • [ – ] iradei parent reply agreeeeed, all it's missing is star ratings lol
  • EsotericMemer reply PRAISE KEK MEME MAGICK IS REAL!
  • [ – ] NumaOfSabine reply Their community standards "No hate speech No videos that promote racism, bigotry, physical harm of any kind against any group or individual." So subjective
    • [ – ] elbuggo parent reply RE: No videos that promote racism That means that Europeans cant defend themselves against anyone or anything - that would be racism.
    • VoodooPeople parent reply Have they at all gone out and said anything about what they think of youtube? how they've acted against people with "wrong politics" and so on? otherwise it's kinda useless to go from one place, to another one that is exactly the same. Also creators are from California.
  • [ – ] ThuleanPerspective reply All of the eggs in one basket? I don't even collect all my eggs from only one poultry yard. ;-)
  • chaseisgame reply I love this place. It's so cool that there's an actual Vlog category too.
  • TheCastle reply Styx is easily the most calculated ranter ever. The man can go on a topic, stay on the topic and fire off countless facts like a machine gun until the end where is goes "That's about it, peace out"
  • unclebillscamping reply Followed from youtube. Keep up the good work
  • [ – ] Anti-Globalism-1 reply OK..this is Nancy who writes you from time to time. Even us 66 year olds ccan follow you here if need be. Keep up the good work.
  • a_stick reply Finally deleted my gmail account. I still frequent youtube for specific niche categories, but hope to see more of my favorites move here to vidme. Good luck Styx! I'll be watching all of your vids here now.
  • HHisFiend reply YOUTUBE REMOVED OVER 100 SUBSCRIBERS OF MINE IN UNDER AN HOUR
  • Simon1945 reply Styx is one of the most valuable YouTubers or indeed any platform he chooses.
  • Squareinthecircle reply Nice greeting there. I'm following over from YT. Good stuff brother thanks.
  • newgraves reply Thirds a turd
  • Feral_Human reply Social media without free speech is a complete waste of time. Is anyone's life actually so boring & dull that they've got time to waste on a platform that doesn't allow them to speak their mind? Youtube can pull it's head out of it's ass or it can be the next Myspace. Vidme will respect our freedom of speech or we will leave them too.
  • Justin_Kase reply Someone needs to make a list of similar youtubers that have started uploading here or have been all along. Alternatively, perhaps Styx could form a vid.me alliance as well.
  • Scottisanole reply I just deleted Facebook and will stop using Youtube, if need be. Thanks Styx for your content, especially the political.
  • Avonalken reply Lol I'm part of the younger crowd ;) 16"r I'm avoiding everything Google and Microsoft :)
  • Oldwhiteguy reply All I can do is comment!! It never plays on my 6 plus?? Ask for help and they blow me off
  • Winterburn reply Did you know that youtube prevents people some countries from seeing your channel even if we are over 18 ? Btw could you consider making "playlists" here too ?
  • JustHypeVibe reply Welcome to the platform :D @Styxhexenhammer666
  • andrewcrow reply Nice to be able to comment on some videos now! I always avoided logging in to YT as I don't like to share anything with corporations. I hope more YouTubers end up on VidMe!
  • wolfalexzemla reply styx i subscribed because i dont have to give vid.me my address and phone number like yt. i watched your videos all the time on yt but had not subed. eric schmidt and zukf-k are turds and you cant polish a turd. i am happy to watch ads to view your content. The msm and liberals will never share yt with you, they will extinct you there. hope you can make lots of money here or minds till the liberals go after this platform. like the terminator, they will never ever stop.
  • Primordial_Ooze reply Really enjoying this channel. Which I actually discovered through the whole Youtube fiasco, so at least something good came out of what is to surely be Youtubes demise.
  • StellyAndTheMonkey reply Big changes are coming rapidly, and Youtube's solution is to create a stupid survey for creators to rant because they started hating the platform. Youtube is alone right now, the companies are withdrawing and the creators won't support it if it starts falling, because it never supported them so they have no reason to stay loyal. I love Youtube because I have been watching since like 2006 but I hope it falls, so other more open minded websites grow large and create at least a competition to them, because now they work on monopoly and they do whatever they feel like, like dictators. Vid.me deserves a chance because it saw the flaws of Youtube and fixed most of them, creating an enjoyable platform. Hopefully the future improvements will make it better and better.
  • Chicknwings reply Good to see someone still do this for so long without the need of feeling like you aren't enjoying what you make. I've been doing the same style of videos where I mostly talk about gaming topics and such, so I can understand if a lot of people aren't into the non-edit style. It's something simple and easy to assemble, and can go on a topic for up to around close to 15 minutes if need be. I'll be sure to follow your page to see your political insight, and welcome to Vidme.
  • CedricTV reply good stuff
  • MoneyDontSleep reply I believe I was your 307th subscriber on youtube. Many years I have absorbed and shared your articulate and even eloquent banter. Happy to see your success/growth and excited to see where it all goes.
  • bnShadow13 reply Styx, the way you pronounce words man...haha "Pat-tray-on" "Vim-mayo" XD
  • [ – ] chillerchatter reply Minds is really good and I think they'll continue to grow, they just updated the mobile app and it's even better than the desktop version of the site now.
  • thoggy reply Comment for the comment gods!
  • 6Lurk6Moar6 reply Also just an FYI support more independent platforms. WrongThink.Net is fantastic
  • 6Lurk6Moar6 reply Huge fan of your work Styx this is coming from another content creator. I wish you the best as we transition to other platforms. Vid.Me has so much potential. I really hope it takes off.
  • RetroBit reply Welcome to the Vidme platform @Styxhexenhammer666 ! Your channel is really interesting from what I've seen so far, looking forward to future videos!
  • Sectual reply Heaven is a place where Styx just talks, exactly like this, ad infinitum. In front of his black curtains and his bookshelf, in his leather jacket and his legendary glasses. Just like this, forever and ever.
  • Brandon95 reply All hail the god emperor Styx! Styx is the god of memes and Kek is his messenger. 🐸
  • SerialGrapist reply But the real question is, are you going to bring your 10.2 incher to vidme too?
  • shuttlecock7 reply sargon did a stream with with the guy that runs minds. I think moving there is a viable strategy. tealdeer has moved there too and he closed his twitter.
  • vidmejacob reply time to follow you on here, youtube actually screens these vids from my feed
  • VoodooPeople reply I really wish they borrowed a couple of things from twitch.tv, they really have everything down perfectly.
  • CreepyMysteries reply Lol alright m8
  • [ – ] beingagain reply created account on vidme we need to be prepared to cut and transfer to vidme, youtube is degrading from a free speech perspective.
  • glarzey reply 10.2 inches
  • Roger_Harrison reply wtf I just got the notifaction for this. Looks like its been up for over a day. Fuck that for a joke, you tube is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better
  • FreePressofKekistan reply I'm glad you're bringing so many people here Styx.
  • G1O2R3R4I5E6O7Z8K9A0R11S3K4I reply Gorrie Ozkarski was here !
  • LoveLiberty reply A group discussing youtube problems & alliance https://discord.gg/tfKetzd
  • Benthejrporter reply I sub to you on YouTube, SHH. Good to see you here
  • Fauwst reply One thing you have to take into account (imho) is that vid.me as well as minds.com attracts (at this point in time) mostly people who are aware and repulsed by the identity politics of Google and FB. So most of these 'early' adapters will be your target audience. At least this is true for myself and I've never heard of an anecdotal fallacy, I'm glad to have found your channel!
  • LewDub reply Weird when cat's tail appears on screen (10mins).
  • omgomgomgd reply 420th upboat.
  • THOMPSONATOR reply Kind of considering leaving Youtube altogether. This website appears to be improving everyday into a better platform. Youtube 2.0, a modern version of the site without the bullcrap.
  • williamthehun reply 720 is overkill for most devices, unless you are streaming it to a TV like I do. 1080 is useless to your particular form of content. Lets face facts here, 1080p is not going to make you wear a shirt. Cheers, mate.
  • JackBurton reply Psychedelic spirituality Ha! I hear ya brother.
  • EbilWhiteDebbil reply Random jump cuts suck. Random cat photobombs are acceptable.
  • jtarrats reply Strange seen a video of urs in another video platform, but its all good.
  • BraveCounsel reply Very Interesting Move! I think YouTube may be writing its own death warrant if it does not reconsider its current stance!
  • Anonymoos314 reply Almost every video I watched on YouTube was at x2 speed, and it's weird to not be able to do that.. hopefully vidme will offer this feature soon..
  • Sigurd88 reply Styx liked my post on twitter I feel famous now lol
  • havingyarr reply A L R I G H T V I D M E
  • AKcelsior reply Good to see you here. Looks like most of the "free speechers" from YouTube are migrating here. I hope this community grows. YouTube killed the launch of my latest channel, so I'll hopefully be bringing over some of those videos after I get verified. This place seems pretty cool!
  • ccorskipc reply Seems like YouTube is pulling the self aimed trigger already.
  • Seifer_the_lizard_king reply "Alright, Vidme" THE HYPE! On this new Social Media movement lads
  • Nervii_Belgae reply I found you via Varg his channel. Now i follow your vids every day. They are very good. No bullcrap, no chit chat, but just an unsalted opinion and clear view. Finally a vlog with intell in it!
  • adambradley518 reply Get more Tubers to vidme please omg its soooo much better on my phone.
  • maxwaxhax reply I really enjoy the random creator feature on Vidme, fun way to find all types of creators!
  • Angry_Rambo_Show reply Yeah, I grew up on Nova with little to no internet too.
  • Angry_Rambo_Show reply Whats up my brother from another mother.
  • MY_DIGITAL_DREAMS reply I like long rants
  • BiGEd5 reply Great video man:) keep it up great sir
  • Artalive01 reply Glad to see you here mate... Been changing over to this channel lately, Thanks again mate!
  • BurzumFan01 reply Hey man. You like any Burzum songs? If so what songs?
  • LVXMedia reply Let's build an army before David Brock's people figure out what happened.
  • valereth reply I have uploaded to Dailymotion. I swear it was overrun with adware when I did.
  • MidrangeKEK reply I gave you a tip, maybe next time I'll give you the whole thing...
  • TheCarelessVoice reply I love how I can download videos from here. Now I can watch everything I love even offline.
  • LaurenLonestar reply I just learned about this site yesterday. It's refreshing coming here and seeing people make videos on actual topics instead of bashing each other on youube.
  • MaxIzrin reply At the time I write this comment, this video is on the top of the trending page. SlowClap.jpg
  • funkbone666 reply Can't say hello youtube anymore.
  • jmomm72 reply I made the move to vidme because of you & Dave Cullen. You put out lots of quality material. Thanks!
  • chaseisgame reply As someone with not a lot of income, I greatly appreciate the tips function. Every last dollar really makes a difference in my world. Not required of course but it's a really nice gesture.
  • moguxol reply fuck yes, the occult far more appealing than these other popular videos that generally almost every fuckwit watches. heavy metal, black metal, death metal and doom metal really got me into the occult, philosophy, nihilism, atheism or atheistic satanism/ LaVey's Satanism, humanism, politics, etc. etc. ambient music is really good, it is one my non-metal favourite genres. watching your recordings really strengthens my intellect. thanks for the phenomenal, substantial videos in both Vid.me and Youtube. \m/
  • Kalak reply Styx needs to get the cat involved. We know who's boss....
  • ThunderstuckCanuck reply well lots of youtubers are coming here.. so did i. youtube is going to the dump
  • [ – ] ElCidDos reply Why is this site mostly vids about games? I don't get it, why was vidme better than youtube for that?
  • spRas_ reply Comment box told me to say something nice... so, I really really like your 10.2" peen
  • neversurrender reply I prefer long-form rants to jump edits and noise
  • NIGHTGARDEN reply Very nice. (You do not rant. You rave, lol.)
  • arenelomax reply Like I said, I'm with you Styx'.
  • bl_kirk reply Styx!!!(hoo-ra!)
  • TheMarbleMan reply Before everyone jumps on me I found it lol
  • [ – ] TheMarbleMan reply Followed you over from YouTube. I like Vid.me but it doesn't appear to have a subscription feed like YouTube does, where all the new videos from your subscribed channels show up in the order in which they are released. If there's something I'm missing please correct me, but if there's no "Recent subscription activity" feature then that's a deal breaker for me unless YouTube actually starts banning channels that I like.
    • jbboehr parent reply We do have a feed for users you are following: https://vid.me/following You can also enable notifications for when a particular user uploads a new video using the bell icon on their profile.
  • yurisuika reply Once I saw that Varg was on here, I knew it was taking off! I've used Vimeo for years, they are more film-centric oriented but a very good site for short films and works that use special aspect ratios.
  • UsernameThatIsNotInUse reply I like this UI better than than youtube
  • TheRobotNewsNetwork reply The Robots Support Vid.me
  • JasonBen reply We need that 10.2 on vid.me big bro
  • LeChat777 reply I love the tip feature! That's a great idea.
  • LeChat777 reply I definitely prefer the long form rant style. Styx's videos are like a high quality steak dinner. :)
  • HellFireJoe reply Tons of Love Styx <3 Blessed be! <3 ^_^
  • Dick_Dastardly reply With all the stuff you upload you'll probably have to get carrier class internet soon. Lucky.
  • Esteban_Gunn reply If uploader's name ends in trips, he will take over vidme.
  • Synthwright reply Followed from youtube. Vidme looks promising. Found you on Minds too, I also have no clue what to do on Minds lmao
  • Prohaskanation reply Top kek analyst.
  • Bulrock reply Minds will continue to improve. I post straight from mobile, and so far I have had issues you describe, but they are slowly becoming mobile-friendly.
  • Bulrock reply Welcome to the free lands.
  • newgraves reply Keep it up brother love all your content
  • Concentrating reply I like the layout of this site. I can see this working.
  • johnactor reply The kindle version of Fruits of Eden doesn't work... There's no text
  • LilDanea reply Glad to see you here on Vid.me!
  • shadowinfo reply That's very interesting, you are an intellectual man! I'm going to follow and learn from you :)
  • undeadbobop reply I miss old youtube, pre google buy out. Now its just copy paste news crap with zero to no educated opinions added.
  • Sagebrush reply You mentioned that you had moved to Mime.com, but I can't find the website. Did I hear you wrong?
  • kiabiathecat reply You can go live on younow.com
  • Gazeth_Sonica reply Im new to vidme and am trying to cut back on my youtube usage. Anyone got suggestions on other channels that are fun here?
  • wolfalexzemla reply Off topic but who the heck is pepe and is he that green frog with that smirk. Also who is kek. I am just an old guy who lives in the mountains. I think even a millennial could answer those questions :)
  • Cynical-Bastard reply You can download videos off of Vidme? sweetness.
  • tertan reply vid.me = ok. Only thing I miss from YT it the speed the video up opton. I like to listen at 1.25 cuz of so many news notification. Maybe someday it will be here.
Download the Vidme app!
