Most people post their videos to youtube or a similar service and then embed the code that the service provides on their web page.
It's free, the service worries about bandwidth and your viewers would just have to have a recent browser to view the files.
ustream looks to be just for live video. i have a pre-recorded 15 minute video that i'm looking to post on the web.
the youtube partner program tells me that they only accept applications from sources that have a pre-existing audience base. i don't have an audience (yet). my future audience will only be a couple hundred viewers, at most.
any other ideas would be appreciated, thanks!
There is no blanket answer though. It depends on the bandwidth you have available, what kind of quality you want to provide and how much traffic you expect to generate.
Actually, there are ways to get around that limit.
you have to be accepted into the program after you build a following; it will take some time for a dedicated vlogger to do.
you may want to try viddler if you want more than a 10 minute limit. you could also record the video you film on ustream.
