ok, so not for this to sound like some weird plug (and i promise i don't have anything to do with this company) but i loooooove Vimeo (a nifty transliteration of the word "movie" btw)...its yet another in the long laundry list of video hosting & sharing sites (although, launched in 2004, it was actually around a year before YouTube-- note I did not link them) but being a sucker for excellent design--this one takes the cake (its like, prettier than Virb) and I will be hosting all my videos here. So yes, Vimeo is pretty, but it also functions very well and not only allows for easy sharing with one-click integration with faves like Facebook, Flickr, StumbleUpon, Delicious, and Digg, but it also lets users download the original file (not too many sites allow for the download)...Oh, and it has Flickr plugin to stream your Flickr account on your Vimeo page...nice. Just look at how awesome the player looks:
