Anyone out there using an external service for hosting streaming videos? We have some longer instructional videos for our nursing college that we're thinking we might want to serve off-site. I haven't explored this much and would welcome any advice or recommendations for vendors.

We use Fire Engine Red to host our recruitment video and have been very pleased with them. They collect traffic data and also provide a feedback form.

I would recommend youtube, you can contact them about higher ed account. You can store larger video that the usual ten min limit.
Thanks for the suggestion.I think the problem we'll run into is the material we want to serve is copyrighted. We have the right to deliver it to our students, but not the whole world. It could be useful in other capacities though.
This is good to know. I will forward it to my team. Thanks.
We're using iTunesU from Apple. Great deal: they host, after contract negotiations they provide 500G of online storage on their servers. Some caveats: (1) only MP3/4 and PDF formats; (2) client (us) must provide the authentication scheme (Active DIrectory or whatever). Authorization is client-defined and supported by the iTunesU infrastructure.

The original iTunesU content used to be only available via the iTunes client on Windows and Mac. Now there's a way to do RSS feeds thorugh the iTunesU interface but also use straight RSS for other clients.

Security is provided via the client's authentication scheme (verify the end user(s) against AD or class registration records) and the iTunesU authorization scheme which must be set up by the client.

Pretty slick.
Another option would be Vitalstream. Stanford School of Medicine ( med.stanford.edu )has been using them. I just looked them up and they have been acquired by a company called internap (www.internap.com), but still offer the same services.

Good luck,
