(Natural News) As promised, — the free speech alternative to YouTube — has complete several core upgrades that enhance performance and video viewability. The site is free to join.

Over the last 10 days, the following features have been rolled out:

  • Removal of pre-roll video ads, which means your videos start playing immediately, with no pre-roll interruption.
  • Significantly upgraded video transcoding capacity, meaning your newly uploaded videos are processed very rapidly, often in 5 – 10 minutes. (This upgrade just went into place last night.)
  • Faster video playback initiation, thanks to adaptive bitrates that start out the videos at a low bitrate, then adaptively upgrade the bitrate as available bandwidth allows. This results in video plays starting almost immediately, with almost no perceptible delay.
  • Relaxed channel views requirements. We’ve slashed the channel view requirements in half, allowing users to unlock higher video upload capacity with fewer total channel views.

More features are coming to Brighteon this year, including subscribes, Twitter-like text messaging capabilities, home page video categories, donation button integration with SubscribeStar and more.

To help fund, we’ve rolled out a donation button in the site masthead, and we will be experimenting with text links that promote approved content sites (from the indy media) in the weeks ahead.

Importantly, all these new changes have dramatically decreased our operations costs, making Brighteon more sustainable. As it gets more popular, however, we will need to find creative ways to generate the revenue to pay for bandwidth, hosting, storage and video transcoding. All donations are appreciated.


Many new channels are joining Brighteon

The Truth About Cancer has just joined Brighteon and will be uploading hundreds of videos about cancer, vaccines and natural health. Episode One of their The Truth About Vaccines is live now at this link. It features Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and many other experts on vaccine safety and vaccine science.

John Mark, creator of the wildly popular “Civil War 2 – Who Would Win?” video has also joined Brighteon and is uploading many of his most popular videos (which will likely all be banned by YouTube soon). See his brilliant analysis of civil war 2 in this video, and check out all his videos at this link.

The popular commentator Josh Peck is also on Brighteon and has begun uploading new videos again after our new feature upgrades went into effect.

About the author: Mike Adams (aka the “Health Ranger“) is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on called “Food Forensics“), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics. Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.

Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.

The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed “strange fibers” found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health “gurus,” dangerous “detox” products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over fifteen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
