I'd recommend Googling "free video logs" or "vlogging resources".* There are quite a few sites that offer free services to host small videos, however the totally free ones often have stricter bandwidth limitation or maximum file sizes.So if you plan to make a serious hobby of this, you might want to get your own server space.* I just registered a domain and bought two year's worth of hosting at http://www.godaddy.com - and it was only US$75. * *There may be even cheaper deals about, but a friend had recommended GoDaddy, and so far I am very happy with it.This way you get your own URL too, which is always nice

thanks killahb and istara! much appreicated. i will look into both. a couple of more question have come up in the search for the best way to share video:

(1) anyone here of sharegear2004? it seems its a p2p software for $20 that let people on to a designated folder on your computer with a password.

is it any good? is it spyware filled (probably)?

(2) say i got webspace on godaddy how do you make streams of the video? do you need to convert .mp4 to .wmv or something like that?

THANKS

istara what deal exactly did you get from godaddy for 75?


killahb also youtube is pretty good thanks!!!

also one more question that i am SO CONFUSED on. the file format .mp4 is a quicktime format? if so whats the best way to share .mp4 files with people who dont know quicktime from wmp etc etc etc. when i send or host .mp4 files how will people open them? they do not open in wmp? so i am confused do i need to tell people to download quicktime or should i just convert the files to avi for them? if so that seems like a pain.

please help me.

THANKS!!!

undurdog55 - I got:* two-year .com domain registration - US$11.44* privacy feature (hides my name on WhoIS) - US$3.90* two-year economy hosting with PHP - US$75.84Also when I had a problem with some DNS configuration errors, they correctly guessed what setting was wrong in my account, replying to my help query (via email, so no expensive premium-rate support calls) within a couple of hours.I also recommend that anyone wanting to host video on the web puts Google Ads on their site, if traffic gets heavy, the ads should help pay for a bandwidth upgrade.*EDIT:* I use these forums in Safari and no matter what I try, I cannot get any formatting to work.* I looked in the help section but nothing.* It's also really slow/unresponsive even typing in this box, like I'm typing in treacle or something.
