We require a direct link to the movie file. Your website is linking to a tube web page but not directly to the file. Lots of free sites will not allow direct linking to the file, which is probably why you are having a problem.

The free sites tend to change their linking policy pretty quick after they've amassed enough users. I have no experiance with ourmedia.org so I can't comment on them specifically, but from your movie page it looks like they want everyone to watch movies via their flash player.

I don't have any experience with archive.org either, but I have noticed that a few of the existing cinema movies are hosted there, so you should be able to get it to work.

Personally I'm not a fan of so called "free" hosting. Bandwidth always costs money and companies have to pay for it somehow. It's usually worth spending a little bit of money yourself to get a decent service. Also check to see if you get any webspace with your ISP, it'd be a waste not to use that seeing as you're already paying for it.

I feel as if I should know this, but I seem to have forgotten. How would I check if I get any web space with my ISP? Also, how would I then go about using it? I would definitely be interested in finding out if I have any.

Thanks for you assistance.
