    Hey Guys,

    I'm looking for a free video hosting service such as Vimeo, not keen on You Tube if possible, its for one of our clients so I guess it might come under "commercial" any pointers would be great?

    Cheers

    Thanks Levi,

    I would love to use Vimeo but I dont know if they will accept the clients videos, she hosts conferences etc and is a BBC news anchor so wanted to put a couple of samples of that up, what do you think?

    As far as Vimeo is concerned, check their guidelines...

    Vimeo is your safest guess I think. Or maybe Veoh.

    Hi Blueocto,

    Problem is my server will eat up all the bandwidth doing that way, so really need it hosted somewhere else, im still looking into it though, think it may just be youtube

    If you are still not keen on you tube why don't you do what I suggested, unless you have gigs of (legal) video how about just getting this 512meg storage and unlimited bandwidth for £20 a YEAR or £40 for 3 years, hell it's only £40/80 for 5GB storage. You even get a domain if you want it or you could do a redirect on a sub domain and link to the video's that way using the video player I suggested (63 euros with all the skin options) so working on current exchange rate of 1:1 it would cost £103/143 for 3 years, you could even host your site there if you wanted to.

    Thanks everyone for their posts but looks like we are taking the youtube route, kind of makes sense for most reasons to be honest :)

    Another reason for using YouTube though is its free marketing!!!
