Where to publish your screencast
Actually main free video hosting are using a strong dowsampling that does not allow a good video quality to present screencast.
Then you'll need to find your own web hosting or a free one that can host just the video without resampling.
- What about distribution the videos with a bittorrent-style distribution? Maybe OSGeo could provide the infrastructure for this?
