    specifically vids? Or zipped vids? I had been using a good japanese uploader, http://updown.coolnavi.com to share videos witha group I'm in but it is down now and it is the last one I had working In the past I had used others like come2store but they are all gone. I need at least 50megs space, 50 to 100 would be better (that is ONE file, not some measly 1 meg per file) and I would need a filetype of zip, rar, or all the major vid types accepted, and I have NO credit so paid host is out of the question, and I need unlimited bandwidth. Popups, banners, or occasional redirection to spam to cover server costs is no problem. Does anyone have an idea? It could be ftp or direct upload. Thank you.

    If you have broadband internet and there are a limited number of people accessing the files for download/upload, you might consider your own little FTP server.

    You can assign folder access, logons and passwords to those people who need to get the files.

    ISPs do not like this setup, especially if you anticipate this to be a high traffic site (if it is high traffic, I don't suggest doing this, you could be cut off by your ISP); but for personal file sharing, it does work. And of course, you have no size limitations to deal with.

    i found that if u join a forum dedicated to webhosting, sometimes you can find posts by companies or people who offer free accounts for like the first 10 people who post. sometimes the accounts can be pretty awesome with like 2 gigs of storage space and 10gb bandwidth.

    oh had another thought.

    Fateback looks good at first glance but many did also. I hope there's no catch. Thanks a bunch.
