🙂 Exactly.

Seriously, bandwidth killing is a real problem for all non-profit
video/audio on the web. Potential solutions are to try to generate
revenues, go Creative Commons so you can host at archive.org, or to buy
bandwidth in bulk.

Also, DO put a rate limiter on your uploads so that the ISP shuts them off
rather than charging you a fortune when you go past quota. I got learned
that when I got burned for bandwidth on a dumb web hit I created (at
gonze.com/alpha.cgi).

I wonder how doable it would be to create a co-op hosting service?
Bandwidth is cheap enough if you buy in bulk.
