I have a video that I am trying to upload. I want it in a way so that not the whole world can see it, unless they have the exact link.

You-tube requires you to be a member to view private videos, so don't want to use that, since the people I am going to show it to, might not be members.

I am using putfile at the moment, but it takes forever for my video to load.

Just wondering if there are others I should look into?

Thank you.

Buy some cheap hosting and use CPanel to create a password protected folder. :)

I guess there is nothing free? How much is cheap, and can you please list me a couple of examples?

you will probably get this anywhere, im guessing you have an average 128K upload speed if you are on broadband, which equates to 15Kbs ul speed.

The uploading took a while. But I was referring to the site itself. It takes forever to load up my movie.

I am trying to register, but it seems every SINGLE username is already taken...
I have tried about 12-15 random ones and it's taken....so I can't register...

Am I doing something wrong?

You should be able to get around 100MB for $15 per year or 250MB for $30 per year with decent download speeds (uploads are still quite slow on most Jetstream connections due to the 128k upstream limit). :)

Edit: Those prices would be US$, so NZ$25 to NZ$50. :)

Even bigmit37pressf1roxlikemadooohhhhyeahcoolas? :D
If your video is not too big, why not put it on something like Geocities or Freewebs.com?

Depending on how long you want it hosted for, there is a raft of free filehosting sites.

www.radpishare.de
www.megaupload.com
www.sendspace.com

Most will host the file for 30days for free, or until there is 30 days of no-one downloading it - longer if you have a membership.

Here is an blog posting that has a list: http://www.jdempsey.com/2005/12/08/free-online-file-storagesending/
