How did you host your videos before the Org?

Post by The Wired Knight » Tue Jun 03, 2008 11:01 am

Ok, before you started uploading stuff here, how did you used to distribute/host your videos?


Hawaii's then Waldo's FTP were where I first hosted my videos way back when. That waqs the first place I knew I could upload AMVs so it went there first.

Though when those were down I tried running my own FTP client for my work. . .but it kept killing my bandwith so I had to abandon that.

Before the Dangling Carrot and then the Golden Donut, I was still on a university connection with a decent upstream, so I hosted my own HTTP server (in flagrant violation of the university's terms :) ).

>_> youtube

On the bright side, if it wasn't for the tube, I probably wouldn't have found the org in the first place.

Anyone who says utube is a noob :| Thats not real hosting. I had several different webhosts, both free and ones i paid for myself. My first one was terminated for hosting Jesmasters videos because they generated too much traffic -_-

I didn't have any kind of hosting for the first five or six videos, because I hadn't learned of the .org yet. I did share my videos through good ole Napster, though... before it went commercial. Coincidentally, by the time I decided to upload here (I had already been a part of the site for a while), the Donut had been implemented, so I had no worries.

Now, Ileia kindly loans me a bit of space from her hosting, and Arigatomina offered a home to video of mine and a few other things on hers.

Having my own actual hosting now is a relief O.o especially because I don't only make AMVs, I make other music videos as well...

My first video (like a day before I joined the org) I put on Tripod or some bull.. Angelfire? so you could imagine how small the original file was... the video is very short.

Then I asked people on livejournal what they thought of it... which was summed up as "well it follows the song a lot better than most first videos"... (advice on the technical issues woulda been really nice...) and to me that was good enough to join the org and start uploading...

I think I tried sharing them on whatever file sharing programs are out there, but that kinda failed... a recent search on a p2p I have found a couple of my videos on it but I don't use p2ps much anymore O.o

I knew about the org since about 2000 but I refused to join cause it didn't have any "pretty pictures" and I really didn't get how the site worked, plus I felt like it was pointless cause it just listed a bunch of stuff that said it existed but I didn't know where to download it from and I could probably just get them off of p2ps anyways... Plus I kinda felt like I didn't have anything to contribute...

and as for youtu<b></b>be... I learned about it when someone contacted me after watching one of my videos there (someone else had uploaded it)... but that was when you could search for fruits basket and only get like 10 amvs and thats it.

I hosted my vids on my webserver like I still do now. I also used Kazaa and other file sharing programs.
