Rabbit or Rabb.it was a popular video streaming website and mobile application. Unlike other streaming services like YouTube or Netflix, Rabbit didn’t host the streaming media. Instead, they streamed it from a virtual computer (Rabbitcast) with a browser. Rabbitcast was used to navigate to other websites and content. The service enabled the users to watch contents in a group.
A user (or a host) could create a room, invite friends or make it public; they could share content using Rabbitcast or using the Chrome extension Share on Rabbit. The service was finally shut down by July 31, 2019, due to lack of funding. The service had some game-changing features for streaming content from the web. So even though it is being shut down, streaming platforms are now trying to implement these features. So, in this article well have a look at some of the Rabbit alternatives that are available.
