    A shame. I rather enjoyed the site, for what it was, and even uploaded a few videos of my own earlier this year. It sucks that, aside from Youtube, Dailymotion and Vimeo, there really isn't the same range of choice in video sharing websites that there were in the late 2000s.

    Was this the video service that wouldn't let you upload anything larger than 1 gigabyte unless you paid for it?
    I seem to have an account and I can't imagine why I wouldn't have used it unless it was for that reason, which I seem to recall quitting a video site because of.

    You could upload up to 3GB per week if you didn't pay. Nothing I ever put on there came close, even in 1080p, but then they all were under 2 minutes.

    Most videos I record wind up being 20+ GB.... x_x
    I don't actually know how to record small video files while keeping high visual fidelity.

    Raw video you get from recording is uncompressed, of course they're huge. Go get Avidemux and re-encode them into a different format.
