Individual Sites

Youtube

  • Pros: Ubiquity and name recognition, free
  • Cons: 10min video length limit, 10mb size limit, poor audio+video quality, doesn't handle widescreen.

Howcast

This site seems primarily oriented towards instructional videos.
  • Pros: Pretty decent quality. 100mb limit.
  • Cons: Unknown.

Veoh

San Diego based company; Michael Robertson's suggestion.
  • Pros: Higher quality than Youtube, no length limitations, free.
  • Cons: No idea.

Stage6

San Diego based company; tossed in for consideration by Randy.
  • Pros: Higher quality than Youtube.
  • Cons: DiVX plugin required to view videos.

Joost

Sander works there. Randy mentioned it. Sander states it's more of an IPTV thing, not so much a video clip site.
  • Pros: Unknown
  • Cons: Unknown

Eyespot

Another San Diego based company. They have a partner site for setting up your own sorta-youtube-ish service.
  • Pros: Monetization of your own videos. Integrates with websites. Apparently the "hosting bundle" lets you do your own sorta-youtube service with your own userbase too.
  • Cons: Users see ads unless you get the premium hosting bundle.

Mixmonsta

Beta site; not sure about limitations. Randy mentioned it.

Vimeo

Nathan and Sander both recommend it; no plugin required.
  • Pros: High definition, allows download of original video file
  • Cons: Unknown

VMix

Another option; primarily oriented towards companies however.
