FileAve - FileAve.com is a free file host and web host which gives users 50 MB file storage space on free hosting accounts, and 150 MB bandwidth/day (about 4.5 GB/month). That is the daily data transfer for external linking (file downloads by others), but all users have unlimited access to their own files through the control panel. You can host 50 MB of your videos, music clips, Flash animations, WAV files, and images for use anywhere, such as LiveJournal, eBay auction listings, MySpace, Xanga, photographers, sharing your files, homework, and more. All file types are permitted, but no scripting is allowed. The HTML codes are automatically generated for embedding music/videos/images on webpages -- hotlinking (direct linking/ external linking) files is allowed. Once you have uploaded a song, music, or video file, you can use the "Get Codes" link to generate EMBED tags that can be used on other websites to play the music/video file. The filehosting account includes a free subdomain, such as yourname.fileave.com, in which you can make a free home page. You can create your own folders/directories to organize your files, or just upload files into the root folder. FileAve.com is a sister site to Ripway.com (owned and operated by Ripside Interactive, a free web hosting company since 1999), and their dedicated webhosting servers are located in a highly secure datacenter, with redundant storage, multiple connections to the internet, and a large cluster of web servers to maintain hosting reliability. Account creation is instant (registration required). Freehosting accounts that are inactive for more than 60 days (2 months) will be removed from the webservers, but their TOS reccommends to log in to your account at least once a month to keep it active. Accounts can have paid upgrades to increase the file storagespace and daily data transfer limits.
Hotlink-Files - HotlinkFiles.com is a free file hosting provider dedicated to providing reliable free filehosting with direct linking files allowed. You can upload, store, and hot-link videos, photos and pictures, music clips, audio files, and more (all filetypes allowed), and stream audio and video files for MySpace, Friendster, Xanga, blogs, and other websites. Registering is optional (though required for uploading and hot-linking non-image files). The free filehost registered accounts have a 50 MB maximum upload file size for all file extensions, and the anonymous uploader form allows a max file size of 5 MB, but only allows uploading and hotlinking images. You can upload a zip file of images to be unzipped on the web server so they can be hotlinked separately. Registration allows you to upload all other file types and easily manage and track all of your files stored on the host server. Registered members can also create hidden/private/public folders, and get 1000 MB file storage space and 8000 MB monthly bandwidth limit. Registered account users can delete files through the management system, but publicly uploaded images cannot be deleted by users. They will store the hosted files indefinitely (forever).
YouTube - "You Tube" is a very popular free video hosting and video sharing site where you can find and watch thousands of streaming videos, as well as upload videos in almost any video format to tag and share with others (videos can be made public or private). Videos can be categorized, rated, tagged, and commented. Registered members can upload an unlimited number of videos to YouTube.com, but there is an upload limit of 100 MB and 10 minutes in length per video file (there is no video length limit for Director accounts). You can upload video file formats from most digital cameras, camcorders, and cell phones in the .AVI, .MOV, and .MPG file formats. For high quality vidoes, YouTube recommends uploading videos in the MPEG4 (Divx, Xvid) format resized to 320x240 resolution with MP3 audio. Video files uploaded to the service are converted to Flash 8 format for online video streaming. At the bottom of the page for every hosted video there is HTML source code to embed the video in a webpage, which you can use to make your embedded videos autoplay. YouTube supports mobile video uploads (upload videos from your phone or PDA). You can choose to broadcast your uploaded videos publicly, or share them privately with selected friends and family. Hosted videos remain on their servers until the users who uploaded them choose to remove them.
