Which sites can be trusted with credible UFO footage?

I was just looking at a thread in which a member posted that a video was suspect because it was on youtube. Why is that? I thought youtube was pretty trustworthy as long as you, of course, remain skeptical. But I usually only look at the newest videos uploaded today under ufo sightings 2009. I figure if you can watch a video uploaded one minute ago then it would take much longer for someone from the government to find it and make it vanish. So if youtube for some reason is untrustworthy then what sites are trustworthy? Obviously ATS.

Are we allowed to make a list and check it twice (objectively)? Can we have a discussion about the most credible sites on the web for good up to date UFO footage?
I would like to know where you all go for your daily fix, ATS obviously being first but then where do you go? Do you just stay on ATS or do the thread posts lead you on a strangle goose chase around the web? And what does it for you? Pictures, video, reports, old stories like Roswell or new stories like GFOL? What don't you take seriously? What automatically makes a website NOT credible or a video not credible? How do you judge?

And please keep it truthful. It is much more interesting that way. I have my own daily routine. What is yours?

Ummm I don't think you can trust ANY UFO/Alien related websites. To be honest, I think it is up to the individual to make a judgement on weither the information or footage being viewed is reliable or not.

LunaCognita, a member of Youtube has some very well examined UFO related videos for the average UFO believer. He's a goos start
Have a look at some of his friends and you'll find a few more in-depth UFO analyser's (not sure spelling).

Hope that helps.

ATS has a policy to ban people for posting hoaxes, but I'm not aware of any such policy on youtube, so that's one difference that I know of. Someone can post a hoax on Youtube, claim it's real and the admins there may do nothing about it. On ATS when a hoax it's found, it's tagged, and if the poster made the hoax, then they get banned. For example:
Giant UFO's [hoax]

That hoax tag is added by the mods, it wasn't there originally when posted, and the thread gets moved to a different forum, the HOAX forum:

Does that mean you can trust all the videos on ATS to not be hoaxes? Of course not, but at least there's a good policy to deal with them when they are discovered.

There's even a list of some hoaxes in this thread:
See- Some Known Relevant Top Hoaxes

I tried looking at UFOs on youtube but it really seems like a waste of time, there's so much bad stuff there that's unfiltered. Some good CGI though.

You're right that ATS is much better, even though many videos posted here are on youtube, there's better filtering here to weed out some of the bad stuff.

I'd say there is no such site. The reason is simple - we never know the true story behind the footage. Luckily, it's sometimes possible to notice from the start if something was filmed as a hoax. Problem starts with unintended hoaxes. Someone filmed something, maybe a bird, maybe something else, went home and suddenly they believe they have ufo's footage. And people often see what they want to see.
So I guess youtube is not so bad if you search for ufo's footages. You won't find better. And I believe that there are some footages that actually show real ufos. I just don't know which one they are

I would definately check out Mr. Booth goes to great lengths in checking out any videos or links to videos, before posting them on his site. If he does post something he thinks might be a hoax, he will say so. Although I don't know the gentleman personally, I have a great amount of respect for both he and the website he hosts.

My litmus test for UFO sites can be summed up in one sentence:

A site has no credibility if it considers Billy Meier photos as legitimate.

Now back to lurking.
