Watching movies for free on the Internet, everyone does it, this is called video streaming.
But finding a streaming site that offers good movies and series, it's not always easy, let alone with video players that do not stop every 10sec because the server is so slow or overloaded that it requires to load again the video stream!
Current streaming in 2019
It's been a while since I've written an article about streaming, because things are as they are, the semi-underground world moves fast and is hard to follow! A big streaming or download site disappears? 5 sites with the same name appear, 5 sites with a similar name appear, 4 sites with supposedly the same administrators, 3 sites with the same design to try to steal your details, etc. The site changes address? There is not always redirection, the new address is the real or a scam? Is the 1st position for this site on Google really the real address? Some sites don't want to be on Google!
As you will have understood, unless you really know the environment and the people who managed this or that site, it is difficult to follow in the footsteps.
The last disappearance of the site of streaming Dpstream and the many calls to what I get a new list of streaming sites led me to write this article.
The top streaming sites
Without further ADO, here is a new list of streaming sites French and free competitor to Netflix (and which takes over the series of the latter) for this year 2019, hoping that it does not move too!
Only dedicated to streaming movies (and as the name suggests, complete, fortunately). Ranking by gender and search by name. Several streaming platforms available each time.
Gratflix parodies Netflix by using a similar name as well as the design of the name. The rest of the site is similar to other streaming sites.
Ranking by genre, by year, top 10. It is possible to access unrelated series or films (from my point of view) by clicking on the "previous/next page" buttons.
Filmstreaming is full of ads, some of which are confusing to other streaming sites, but it has the advantage of having fast and fluid servers (at least, every time I've used it, it was the case). Only movies.
The quality of the videos is clearly stated on the film poster and the player.
Ranking by name, gender, release year and popularity.
Papystreaming is a grandpa, it is among the oldest French streaming site still active on the web. It offers movies, series and anime streaming. Although the site indicates that it is necessary to install a mini program called Cacaoweb, personally I get to play the videos without worries.
Although there is the full word in the name of the site, it is actually not really complete since it only offers movies and no series.
On the other hand, it offers you an IMDB ranking. I'm not a fan of IMDB at all, but having this ranking built in can be very interesting for people who love IMDB!
Here's one of the perfect examples of the complexity of following streaming sites: If you search for LibertyVf on Google, the first site you'll have is simply a copy of the real site!
Many also believe that it is the successor of LibertyLand, which was very famous a few years ago. Except that's not the case, LibertyLand's directors said LibertyVF was not under their control… But hey, they weren't going to say publicly that they run this site when they were arrested for LibertyLand! True or false estate, I do not know, but one thing is for sure is that the site that uses more or less the same principle that LibertyLand has managed to take and keep a place among the most famous French streaming sites!
It should be noted that LibertyVF also offers downloads.
Of course, this is not an exhaustive list.
