So recently I stumbled across wimp.com, a curated collection of interesting videos which are all “family friendly” and (as far as I have seen) ad-free. So it is basically a very small subset of the videos you might find on Youtube or Vimeo — a video version of the Internette. Granted there are only a handful of guinea pig videos, but you can search “guinea pig” on wimp.com and not stumble onto a trailer for Gini piggu 2.* This is a useful feature if you occasionally browse videos with your kid.
The videos it does have tend to be a mix of animals, educational shorts, music performances (skewed toward the unusual), and animation. The curators accept submissions but basically accept only things they find interesting, family-friendly (not defined but I’m guessing no strong language, no violence, no sex), and not “sensationalistic” (? I think they mean nothing disturbing or upsetting?). They add about 4 or 5 videos a day, so the content is much more limited than something like Youtube, and they tend to prefer shorter videos, citing the preference of their audience of children and seniors. Wimp.com does not allow comments, which is something Youtube probably wish they’d thought not to do.
*I’m not sure Youtube even has a trailer for this particular film, but you know what I mean.
