Hello All:
This is a follow-up on a previous discussion. In the earlier discussion I asked about thoughts of hosting videos for my new website via youtube. We decided to bypass youtube as a host, but still post the content there. That being said what are some good options for hosting with custom players and good interation with as many delivery systems (Firefox, APPLE, Mobil, Ect.)?

Thanks for your thoughts

Bits on the Run is worth checking out. They do the compression for you (after you upload a high-quality file), set up your players, provide the code to put it in your website etc. And compared to other video hosting services they're dirt cheap. You also set up a free account and test it to see if you like it.

I've also heard good things about Sorenson 360, and they've set their up to provide mobile versions so that's taken care of within the various packages. It's also quite affordable and again, they do the just upload a high-quality file.

I'm sure there are others, but these two are doing things many of the big video hosting services are not, and they're charging less than the big boys.

I like ProVDN, which has the added benefit of a nifty client review interface. Really cool.
