Basically, I'd rather not get into hosting my own streaming video because it seems complicated and might require extra bandwidth or server capabilities.

Are there any good services that can host private videos for me to embed on my pages for subscribers only?

Basically, something like YouTube would be perfect if the video didn't appear in search results and could be seen by more than a handful of people when marked private.

Thanks in advance.

Take a look at Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), I think it may do everything you want.


It's not free, but it is VERY inexpensive.

Blip.Tv allows you to host videos free and you can mark them as private so only people viewing it through your web page can see them. It's free to upload small videos, but anything more than about 10 minutes requires a PRO membership, which is $8/month. You might have to have a PRO account to mark it private too.
