What makes Reddit unique for watching music videos is that you'll find submissions from a variety of websites, so even if you've already used the other music video streaming websites in this list, Reddit is the next best place to see videos from elsewhere.

You can sort submissions by what's hot right now, the newly added ones, and today's or this year's top-rated music videos. The extremely popular /r/Music is another subreddit you might like that sometimes includes videos.

There are several thousand results through the link below, but Internet Archive also has the more general, and much larger (millions of items) Audio Archive that surely has other videos sprinkled within its subcategories for you to uncover.
