    hi all
    ive been busing ripping videos for a new site ive been building & was wandering where the best place to host my video`s without the risk of them being taken down all the time , there not porn or anything like that . i was looking at using
    Code:
    http://www.videobb.com/
    which looked a good deal with good revenue share but on closer investigation the only ads on vids are there ads ,advertising there revenue share , lol . and most the videos on there turn out to be just thumbnails . hosting them offshore myself isnt an option either . im thinking of monetizing with pop ups or something but any thoughts would be appreciated on that to .

    Most of the big guys use http://aws.amazon.com/s3/. In my opinion, it's the hands-down best platform for hosting videos. It's very cheap and easy to use.

    it does look a good deal ,thanks for that .

    to set this up would i need to store my video on this account and transfer them to my blog at my hostgator account ? to do this would i need a domain on the new host , and then set up sub domains for each title ? ie .
    mynewaccount dot com / movie-1.html ? or is the idea to host the site , movies and domain on this new accout ?

    you can upload the video, and get hotlink,

    use that onto your gator site.

    use camtasia to make yoru vid.

    upload it to hostable, get the html code , past it into your site on gator.

    simple. I can teach you 'how-to' if you pay.
