Welcome to VidHotel. Before going in-dept on various guides and about pages, we wanted to summarize the reason behind this service. At some point we noticed there is no common indexer for video content and decided to do something about it. Our main goal is to serve as an aggregate for the web and it’s vast world of video supply & demand, where everybody wins. We don’t host a single video file. Our aim is to connect creators with users and benefit both. Publishers gain additional attention to their videos/affiliate programs and users have a commonplace to turn to when they want a broad spectrum of video content. We’ll be constantly expanding the platform, aiming to support the applicable video hosting platforms available. To conclude, here are two examples:
You’re a user, who saw a great video on YouTube/Vimeo/StremTape? And you want to share it with the world, help get involved somehow? Expose it to a new audience? Maybe spark a fresh discussion? Sure, it takes 1 minute. Seriously! Go ahead, try it!
You’re a creator, publisher who wants additional backlinks and exposure? Everything helps when chasing the viral thrill. Signing up here takes no more than 10 seconds. Literally. Adding your whole youtube library takes even less. Just get your links, paste them and hit submit. Done!
VidHotel doesn’t take you away from your habits, it gives you an untapped stage to “dance” on.
Although it’s not a rocket science, although everyone has used google at least once in their lifetime, we feel it might be helpful to give you some tips as to how to easily get to what you’re looking for.
Sounds simple, but a lot of search analytics indicate results containing full sentences, instead of keywords. Here’s an example:
less results: watch RIhanna diamonds official music video
more results: Rihanna diamonds
As you might have noticed, we have sorting filters on the top right corner of VidHotel (on latest/search pages). You can sort through results based on the following criteria - video source (where the video is hosted), relevance (if it is popular, new, old) and video quality (HD 1080p, HD 720p, HD 480p etc)
We’re constantly working on adding more usable sources. If you wish to have your service added to our list, contact us! Supported sources as of Mar 3, 2020: youtube, vimeo, dailymotion, acestream
VidHotel is all about user shares of existing video content. Meaning, VidHotel not only does NOT host any of the content, but also operates exclusively on user submissions. However, our goal is far from finding ourselves in the middle of any sorts of disputes, which is why we’ve developed a dedicated tool, dedicated to servicing takedown requests.
No matter if you’re copyright holder, someone displeased with being featured on our platform or anything else, we basically offer you full access to the database and leave it to you. We will not interfere one way or another. We deem it problematic to take decision making upon ourselves, which is why we’ve created the proper tools to distance ourselves from handling abuse notices and give full control to those, who hold the claims. Get aclaimed with the abuse tool here.
Our philosophy dictates that if a user’s submission is wrongfully reported, they’d be understanding enough to re-submit. After all, VidHotel doesn’t have an affiliate program, we do NOT interfere with submissions beyond keeping them family friendly (automatically, based on certain periodically imrpoved filters).
