Need recommendations for a cheap video hosting service. I don't need fifty thousand bells and whistles that sound great, but I'll never use. I need encoding, hosting, and stats. The stats don't need to be a minute by minute geographic break down either.
For encoding as a requirement I assume you want to do a live video stream, for this you will need something like Red5 which will require a vps. If you wish to simply use ffmpeg to stream already made videos you should be able to find a host who offers this in the shared offers thread
I have seen some specialty hosts online that specifically offer shared web hosting with Red5, but im not entirely sure about the quality of the services. Just do a search via Google for shared red5 web hosting.
