      Hello all,

      it seems like anyone who wants to put a video online uploads to YouTube. Have any of you found a better venue for your particular genre?

      For high quality vimeo.com is the best choice you can test with FREE account but if you pay $60 per year to open an account is better. Another choice is DailyMotion. Read the documentationfor vimeo you can find many advantages like change and delete video file anytime.

      Regards,

      YR

      Dox, I have set up Amazon S3 to host videos for a completely proprietary solution (No ads, commercials, copyright notices, etc). It takes a little effort to figure out how to set it up, but I ended up with 25gigs of free hosting. I then embeded a free player on my own web site. Great way to manage video hosting on a budget.

      In addition to Vimeo, Dailymotion and Amazon S3, there are:

      1) Metacafe, pays a couple of bucks per thousand views:http://www.metacafe.com/

      2) If you have a web series and want to make some advertising revenue, blip.tv is great: http://blip.tv/

      I recommend this video from Chris Were comparing the various video hosting services: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xqx4fs_youtube-vs-blip-tv-vs-dailymotion-vs-metacafe-vs-vimeo_webcam

      Cheers,

      I used to use YouTube for my daily Vlogg videos, but in early march of 2012, google screwed YouTube up, many of left, it was that bad. I use Facebook for a couple months, then I found ZippCast.com 20,000 of us, going strong now.
