    File Hosting Website Recommendation

    This isn't really tech help, just advice. I'm trying to find a website that will host large video files uploaded to it for free. I used Filefront previously because they have a large size, and preview option. But they have a terrible policy of deleting anything that goes for so long without being used. So what I'm looking for is pretty much:

    -Large file size limit. 800-1gb maybe
    -Free
    -Reasonable policy on purging your material
    -Hopefully one that isn't unaccessible to people in certain countries, like I've heard is the case with rapidshare.

    Thanks for any comments. Most file hosting sites I've checked so far have very low size limits.

    You'll probably consider this unhelpful, but I highly recommend buying a professional hosting package. I pay $5/month for 110GB of storage and 5TB of bandwidth monthly. I'm sure if you bite the bullet and spend a few bucks, you'll find a deal that suits.

    I barely care enough to reupload all this bullshit, and definately not enough to pay to do so. Thanks though I'll keep looking around.

    Edit: misread

    To expand on that, if you take a 24 month package with site5, for $6.95/month you'll get 1,500,000mb (1,500GB) storage and 15,000,000,000mb (15TB) bandwidth.

    3GB transfer? That's not much these days.
    3000gb = 3 terabytes give or take

    Pft, you should have read enough of my posts to know I'm smarter than that. Or perhaps I've over-estimated you?

    Gwyn, is this for your FFXI CS videos?

    It seems that if you could torrent them you could get them out there pretty easily without dealing with all these problems. I don't have all the ones you made (the ones that got taken off FileFront), but I imagine a good number of people do. Given that most of us have the files already, we could start seeding.

    You get the for the vids, I hope we can see more if torrenting works for ya
