Yes, I spread my videos around to different servers.

I could put a video up on TypePad, but wouldn't want it to load each
time the page is displayed.

You could link to the video file itself, without any HTML code around
it, but then you'd loose the ability to give the viewer information
about the video, with links back to your site.

That's what I don't want to have happen, people just linking to the
.mov file and loosing all the information about me and the video.

are you also using poster movies? if you place a poster on your blog, which could be on
typepad, then the poster movie can load the real video from any viable url, which could be
from where you're hosting the video from.

the other advantate of the poster movie is that viewers are only looking at stuff that's the
same size as a jpeg and it only downloads if and whne they request it.
