    Video Hosting?

    Places like YouTube limit video's to 10 minutes. What is the best option to use to host a big video that is like 2-3 GB and longer then 10 minutes?

    Re: Video Hosting?

    Do you want it to be streamed or just available for download?

    Vimeo should be able to handle it, though you might need a vimeo plus account for files that big.

    Re: Video Hosting?

    Also, you're probably better off transcoding it unless you need it in HD, in which case you are probably better off splitting it into parts. 2-3GB is a pretty huge file. Unless it's a very long video (like 2-3 hours) most people's connections won't be able to keep up with that.

    Those sites are all going to transcode it anyway, so you might as well get it close to what you want it to be in the first place.
