Please note that the best alternative to all the hosting options described below is Your Own Hosting. The clear advantage is that you virtually have no restrictions in what material you can host. Pretty much the only disadvantage is that you have to pay a monthly fee, but even that can be very minimal.

Video HostingEdit

DO NOT USE VIMEO They kicked our asses out. Vimeo will delete any account with any videos of video games of any kind.

DO NOT USE VIDDLER They no longer allow you to make free accounts and their pay options are awful.

DO NOT USE BLIP.TV They randomly "purge" LP accounts. Or maybe not. They used to allow HD, but now that's pay-only or something.

YouTubeEdit

Pros:

Cons:

  • Encoding videos for YouTube can be a somewhat strange process.
  • No option to download source video.
  • Depending on the developer, the day, the moon's alignment, and depending on if the bug you stepped on this morning cursed your name with its dying cough, your LP could indeed be targeted and blocked in some countries, if not flat out deleted. It's very inconsistent really.
  • 15 minute time limit for those not graced with no time limit, although that's pretty decent.
  • Shunned community. Can be avoided by unlisting your video and/or turning off comments. Could be considered a pro from a different perspective.

DailymotionEdit

Pros:

  • Can host HD video.
  • Doesn't care about LPs.
  • Unlikely to die any time soon.
  • A decent alternate video host.

Cons:

  • 20 minute time limit.
  • No option to download source video.
  • Lots of intrusive ads.

Self-HostingEdit

Read the Self-Hosting Your Own Video LP guide for more information on how to do this.

Pros:

  • Nearly unlimited possibilities - depending on how much you pay for hosting.

Cons:

  • Not free
  • Not easy to use
  • Limits vary by actual hosting provider

Image HostingEdit

DO NOT USE IMAGE SHACK It does not work on SA.

DO NOT USE PHOTOBUCKET It will run out of bandwidth very fast. It will also make it easy for people to find out how big a creepy fuck you are.
