    Please help:

    I'd like to post a video for my family on a web site. Alas, I don't wish to pay the $100 that Apple is requesting for it's .mac site. Are there any other alternatives for this process? Please advise.

    Any and all help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    I think Apple is still offering a $30 rebate with .Mac. Not sure if this helps you out or whatnot, but that helps soften the blow. There's a lot of pretty cool stuff that comes w/it other than just the homepage stuff. Backup is really cool, and if you have Tiger, .Mac integration is WAY better than w/other OS releases. I'd suggest doing a google search for free homepages. Maybe a geocities homepage, from Yahoo?

    you can always get webspace from a company for 20 a month

    but then again .Mac is 100 for the entire year

    and to think, i do both ;)

    Usually you get free web server space with your ISP.

    A google search found this list of free/cheap video hosting sites.

    Only .Mac will allow for syncing between Macs, which is what I use it for mostly.

    If you just want to show this video to your family, then get rid of it, maybe the 1-month (I think) trial membership of .Mac would sufficient?
