Looking for free upload web-space

I have some videos I want to share with my friends, they are about 30MB in size. Can I upload them some place so that I can give a download link to my friends?

There are websites that allow uploading pictures (such as img.photobucket etc). Any place where I can upload zip files, or other formats?

I have a geocities page, but it hardly gives 15 MB. Can someone help?

Couldnt you set up an ftp server and give them access to it? It would save the upload/download scenario at both ends.

set up an always-on apache server in your house, then steal a domain name and configure iptables to allow all traffic through port 80.

just so you know most ISP's don't like you setting up servers, but do so anyways unless they mention anything

I've got 3 servers doing different things and my ISP hasn't complained.. looking at my netblock, lots of other domains.. I think most will only start to complain when if and when someone has massive amounts of traffic that starts to affect others..

Hi, thanks for all the replies. I can't set up an FTP server or a web server, because my ISP has closed the ports. Also, I dont have a static IP.

I like the g-mail account idea. And I'll also check out the sites some of you have mentioned.

Thanks once again everyone. More suggestions are welcome
