I block ads so that angle of the videosift complaints doesn't apply for me. I just prefer to watch YouTube videos on YouTube. I don't see any value to watching them wrapped by some other site. I always thought Blue had some partnership thing going on because it didn't make any sense for me otherwise. First thing I do is click over to YouTube when I get linked there.
Okay, but Youtube doesn't provide a good list of curated vids.
Fine, but when using a site for discovery purposes you aren't typically linked directly to specific content. When linking to a specific video the intention isn't to provide a source of curated content, it's to watch the video. And 90% or more of the time that video is a youtube video, and videosift is just an extra unnecessary layer around that video. I prefer youtube's site design over videosift, I prefer its related video suggestions, I like that I'm logged into my account and can favorite or thumbs up the video, hell I even like the comments. And to be honest I've tried to use videosift for the "quality" aspect and I just don't really see it. Take a look at their front page and tell me those videos are anything special. I can't.
