Ourmedia.org Launches- Host Your Media for Free

Ourmedia Homepage | Ourmedia

This has been one of the big projects bubbling for a while, and it’s finally launched. What’s it all about?

After months of near-launches, Ourmedia is finally here.

Please come in and register — this site belongs to our members. You can publish media, post comments, and you get a free blog.

We’ll store your video, podcasts or digital photo collection for free — forever. No catches.

Just one request: Go easy on us. We’re still in alpha. There’s still a lot of work to be done, and we have a lot of wrinkles to iron out. But we’re happy our doors are finally open.

Marc Canter and his crew are behind this one, and it’s big deal for podcasters and others that want to make media and share it with others, and don’t want the headaches associated with getting hosting space and bandwidth. Very cool.

Once I manage to get registered (I have an archive.org account with the same email address, so I’m having issues registering), I’ll test it out. Depending on how well it works, I might start using it for TinyPodcast and GadgetFamilyPodcast.

Try it out, and let me know what you think. Is this something special, or just another (free) hosting service?

  1. ourmedia seems promising but the alpha is just that. i signed up but i think it’ll be a while before the key features are there–from what i can tell it isn’t quite a one-stop podcast -rss shop.

  2. My philosophy is that if it is free, don’t bitch about it too much if it doesn’t work as well as you had hoped.

    :) I have an OurMedia “account”, and have been waiting a little over 12 hours for my upload to show up on the servers. But then, I don’t want to host it myself because I don’t want the bandwith thieves to max out my domain allowance.

    so… I sit here patiently waiting.
