On today’s Tech Help for Churches, Podcasting: Choosing a media host for a video podcast

If you’re video podcasting, there are some good and bad choices for video hosting. Here’s just a few and why they’re in their respective categories:

Youtube–It’s not a video podcast host; you can’t download videos.
Your web host–it’s not really unlimited, no matter what they claim. Do you really think Google could relocate to your web host because it’s “unlimited”? No.

okay, free option:
Archive.org–Not really designed as a podcast host. Requires that your content be licensed under a creative commons licence.

okay, paid option:
S3–Not easy to use. Cheap at first, but as downloads increase, so do costs.

Better paid option:
Podbean.com–Designed as a podcast host. Has a plan specifically for video that’s not limited to a certain number or size of videos.
