Could someone check out http://www.ipowerweb.com/ and tell me whether or not this seems like a good service for hosting AMVs? I've never done this before so it would be much appreciated, thanks :)

i'm still having problems with my webhost, internet solutions... first they rip my site down for copyright infringment (i'm guessin the music vids cuz everything else was of a illegal DBZ fansite, (aka no full eps or movies) then they took my DN now i got my DN but the friggin server wont let me log on with the given information, DAMN IT ALL TO HELL!!!


Any free webhosts that aren't bad, that will allow AMV's? anybody know? like 8m.com but i need more than 8m, multiple accounts is possible. if free of coarse

I'm surprised no one's mentioned the Golden Donut/Dangling Carrot. You know, the free video hosting on this website. Granted, it'll be about another month before wide use of it is allowed, but it's there. I just uploaded one of my vids.

Okay, can anyone help me out? I've just started making AMVs and have got three done already (havent seen many others to compare so I can't say if theyre any good or not) Ive been using windows movie maker to make them so they are all in WMV formatt. Can anyone tell me whats the best format for hoting AMVs in cos Ive read around that WMV is a bit crappy. Also, as I am a student in the UK i'm running on a 56k, I have little money and no credit card so any suggestions on sites which could host my vids cheaply would be great. Apologies for the newbieish question but, well, i am a newbie :)

Ok this may sound like a stupid question, but how do I upload my AMV onto the carrot here? I need to know if I have to put my AMV on a webpage first so I can up load it onto the carrot and if so, is there a free webpage hosting site that allows you to hold files that are 30 megs?
Thanks! :)

BitTorrent or Kast for distribution of AMV's

Postby Nurd » Mon Jun 16, 2003 7:01 pm

I know the latest kast (big announcement on slashdot) only came out recently, and from what I hear the older version wasn't as good, but has anyone tried either kast or BitTorrent for distribution of their AMV's, and if so did you have good results with that?

Thanks,

Nurd

Okay I looked at all the links that were posted here and none of them were free. My vids rage from 36-37 Megs zipped. I need a FREE host that gives you that much space. Ive searched the internet thousands of times but come up with nothing each time. Does anyone know of a website that has that much space for you to use on a free account?

PLEASE! HELP ME

if you're a registred member, and you have an AMV that's under 100mb, and follows content guidelines (must be mostly anime, does not contain graphic nudity or excessive violence) - go to the main page, log in, go upload and follow instructions.

It's free, but donation is encouraged :wink:

Well, I just started using ipower last week, and people can still dl my vid with a direct link, so I take that as a good sign so far. It could be that one day they will claim that there are copywrite problems, but until then...

As for the fears of the record or vid industries coming after us, well I see it as a possibility. There are very few of us compared to the masses dl-ing music, so it might be easier for them to deal with us. It would make for good publicity though. :-)

Hey! I just finished my first amv, and am looking to get it uploaded. So is the Golden Doughnut thing up already or not?

And, when I went into upload new vid it said "ask for permission" -- why is it telling me that and who do I ask? And do I upload a vid first or create a catalogue for it first?

Thanks :)

Yes, it's been up for a few months now. Any video you see listed as having a "LOCAL" link is hosted on the Donut.

Don't quite know what the permission thing is about, as I can't remember ever having encountered it before. But you do have to enter a video into the catalog before you can upload it.
