    I thought this might be helpful for everyone who wants to upload their wedding video. I am comparing the options & found two sites that sound better than youtube & photobucket for hosting a video.

    1. Dailymotion - Share Your Videos

    You can upload a 20 minute video at a higher quality.

    The maximum size of a video per file is 150 MB (compared to 100 MB for YouTube). Video limit is 20 minutes (compared with YouTube's 10 minutes)

    Videos uploaded by users to Dailymotion are converted to the VP6 codec at a resolution of 320x240. MotionMaker users can upload at a resolution of 640x480 or 1280x720. YouTube uses the older Sorenson Spark H.263 codec at a resolution of 320—240. Audio on Dailymotion videos are encoded as MP3 at 96 kbit/s in stereo, compared to 64kbit/s mono on YouTube videos.


    translation- better quality video, better sound & twice as long as youtube.



    2. Vimeo, Video Sharing For You

    The resolution is also 1,280x720.

    The main difference between the site and other competing video sharing services such as YouTube is that Vimeo allows only user-created videos, of a "friends and family" nature. No pornography, TV shows, music videos, movies or anything not created by the user can be uploaded. Vimeo has gained a reputation[1] as catering to a high end, artistic crowd because of its higher bitrate, resolution and HD support.

    This is funny- as I was typing this I was also making a Vimeo account to test it out. The first video that popped up was Susan & Matt's wedding. How did it know I would want to see that? The internet is scary sometimes.

    Anyway, the quality is great & it's what Paul Schrank (playweddings) uses so it must be good, right?

    So there you go, two options better than youtube. I think I'll use vimeo. I like that it doesn't seem like the kind of website people click through looking for stuff to laugh at. Dailymotion is like the youtube of France.

      Vimeo looks MUCH better. The only problem is I can't embed it. The code doesn't work.

        I tried google video but the resolution was like youtube/ photobucket. I'm pretty happy with Vimeo.

            Morgan (or anyone) can you recommend a site to privately host videos so that they are not searchable by the general public?
