Which video hosting/sharing service do you recommend?

Posted 02 August 2008 - 09:04 AM

Videos will (usually) be programming-related. Camtasia to do screen capture. I was thinking of creating some video snippets captured from a Sims 2 game play and use that instead of a talking head of me.

I actually wanted to use Vimeo, but they don't want to host game videos anymore. What I'm doing is categorised under machinima (and don't even constitute the bulk of the videos), which is allowed. I'm kind of iffy on that in case they change their definition.

The idea is to write a blog post with a short synopsis and a link to the video.

So recommendations?

Currently considering blip.tv, Viddler, YouTube and Google Video (is this related to YouTube?).

I am pretty sure that googl video adn youtube are the same thing (as google bought youtube) but with a different skin/name.

I would say that if you don't want to worry about what your videos should be classified as go with youtube, but I haven't played around with blip or viddler so I can't say for sure.

Yeah, I thought so too...

I'm hesitant on YouTube because the video picture quality isn't quite as good as the other sites. Right now, I'm considering the site's community and video quality. I'll do some more research... Thanks!

I recommend 3B NEXUS http://www.3bnexus.com is the professional streaming video portal dedicated to businesses, investors and the financial markets. Free-to-view on-demand flash videos self-published by companies, fund managers, analysts, industry and market experts.

No restriction on video file sizes even Gigabyte sizes, unlimited video uploads, accepts a range of video file formats, easy integration with a choice of flash video players to embed your own video to your website, you maintain full rights of content ownership, no video hosting charges, but for the delivery of the content only. The site is very user friendly too.

I hope you like it.

im always going to be a fan of http://revver.com/ because of its simple layout and ability to make a little money off of home videos, flashes or whatever it is that you make in your free time.
