The question was asked “where can I upload my video to?” as in, what (free) services will host my video files?

(Thanks to sull for the list.)

Personally, I use Ourmedia. It’s easy to select a Creative Commons license for your work, and they use The Internet Archive for the file storage. You could just use The Internet Archive, but Ourmedia adds nice features on top of it, including the fact that your uploads are available (almost) immediately instead of having to wait hours or days…

As for the others listed, I’m not really too familar with them. Just be sure to check their term of service. With some of them, you may be giving up rights you don’t want to in exchange for them hosting your file, or they may disappear someday taking your videos with them. It’s a tradeoff you’ll have to weigh in your final decision.

Don’t forget to see Freevlog for the steps leading up to the question of “where can I upload my video to?”

    Hi, I’m Mike from blip.tv. First of all, thank you very much for the mention!

    I just wanted to let you know that blip also supports Creative Commons licenses right out of the box, and also uses the Internet Archive for storage (although we offer our own hosting in addition to the Internet Archive; ours tends to be faster).

    Our goal is to make videoblogging as easy as possible, so in addition to offering integration with the Internet Archive (with our own hosting on top of it) we offer a number of features designed to save you time — we’ll thumbnail your video for you automatically, post it to your blog or blogs automatically, help you bookmark your video on social bookmarking services like delicious… and the list keeps growing.

    An additional bit of trivia: while blip makes it easy to select a CC license for your video, we don’t require it. If you have a piece of video you’d like to keep all rights to, you can do that with blip.

    I’d love it if you gave blip a try, and I’d love to chat with you about what we’re doing now and what we could do in the future to make videoblogging even easier. Drop me a line at mike DOT hudack @7 pokkari D07 TV.

    Yours,

    Mike
