A better option for hosting a video than youtube or photobucket

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
