I’m going to be starting an open project soon (unrelated to web designing) and really need a good stable place to host videos.I saw that your videos were being loaded from ign’s servers – is that the free hosting they offer to certain sites? I’m just wondering whether I should submit a proposal to them sometime in the near future.
Thanks.# April 5, 2008 at 4:27 pm
Someone from IGN offered to host the files for free for me, which was super super nice and I took them up on the offer. I’m not sure whom they extend the offer to, or how that works. I would think a proposal would be smart. Before my videos were on IGN, I was using Amazon S3:

It worked great, but even with the modest number of subscribers to the video casts, it was getting very expensive for me.# April 6, 2008 at 8:59 am
That’s an interesting option, I will look into it further. But I’m not sure if I can embed my videos into my website with the urls they have. I think I’ll use it to allow the user to download the files from. But I still need another host so I can embed them.
Thanks for the link!
