    I tend to like http://www.megaupload.com/ rather than Rapidshare...

    I did have an account but let it laps.. Bugger

    However it is free and 20meg is not an issue.

    Cant you ftp it on the server that the site is hosted on or create a torrent and get it shared on a p2p (one of the few legal files shared)?

    youtube is a decent option thats pretty easy i guess.

    quick google search came up with this one - http://www.2shared.com/

    might be worth a look

    might work. Its a quicktime MOV file... not too sure if Youtube will use it without some sort of conversion.

    Might need to set aside more time to fiddle!

    Yeah I could but 20mb x "???" downloads might cause a bottleneck that hurts the website.

    I will stick it on CS at a later date (after the initial download thump I guess).

    Will look at 2shared too.

    Problem with Utube is that not every one has a downloaded and converter to play it again later.

    A file hosting site, is just that; it hosts and allows you to download in what ever format you put up.

    You can upload MOV into You Tube - I think the main restrictions are 2GB and 10mins in length.
