WatchKnow - Alternative to YouTube


So you've heard about this great video on YouTube, but that's blocked in our District.  How do you access a similar video?  (without illegal downloading, violating our AUP through a proxy portal, etc., that is)

WatchKnow is a site that will allow you to search for videos available on a number of other web sites.  If you're searching from school, there's a simple check box to screen out YouTube sources, so you can see what is available for you to view in your classroom.  Leave it un-checked to find the YouTube video you want, and you'll also see the same or similar videos that are available on other sites that aren't blocked!  It's the perfect solution for a common problem.
