free hosting for podcasts and videos 10


Podcast was the 2005 word of the year. 2006 started a few days ago, and it’s already accelerating to videocasting (aka vlogging, video podcasting, screencast, vcast, vlog, audioblog) — if this is an indicator: there’s far more free video hosting websites than free podcast hosting.

The best value for free hosting is letting people try new technology at their own pace, or to share an occasional audio or video [and free means reliability and logevity are uncertain]. Several websites provide free hosting for both audios and videos:

  1. OurMedia.org (note: this uses Internet Archive, and posted files are available permanently)
  2. FreeBandProject.com
  3. CastPost.com
  4. Gcast.com
  5. BoltFolio.com (audios, videos, photos too)
  6. MyBloop.com (audios, videos, photos too)
  7. KolaBlog.com
  8. Streamload.com (10 GB free, $ upgrade for more)
  9. eSnips.com (1 GB free)

Or, see gHack’s free file hosting list, updated monthly, for all kinds of files.
Podcast hosting only (audios):

  1. Switchpod.com
  2. Shockpod.com
  3. Slapcast.com
  4. dibidib.com
