I run a Website through a web hosting company which is said to offer "unlimited bandwidth". The bottom line is however that this essentially is meaningless! To host large medical examination videos (i.e. 80megabytes plus) without a dedicated server to 750 plus users is virtually impossible.
Having now negotiated new hosting, our customers will hopefully be much happier, however it does seem to be a bit misleading as a non IT professional when you look at whats on offer from some hosting firms. However, apart from the download issue, our hosting providers have been first class, and initially ewe did not specifically ask about video hosting.
Not withstanding our wonderful VLE (see Robert OToole's site for his perspectives!), having high quality video material is essential.
You can watch a video here, which was that was first hosted on YouTube.
Now our speeds are pretty similar to that found on YouTube.
My Masters in Medical Education is continuing apace and I hope to be able to accredit some of the experiential learning from the site towards my future qualifications.
At the site, on the quesitons and videos and also on our blog our videos now run quite seamlessly. Hopefully when we encourage feedback from our use base, we'll be able to concentrate more on the content than providing a high quality service.
If you have any comments I'd love to hear them.

Ive just been compiling a list of clinical guidelines and thought: wouldn't it be nice if they were all in the same place.
About 20+ British Societies alone.
These things are so useful for anybody writing about anything, I just dont think people are savvy enough yet to actually find these links!
Anyway if you're bored, check out some of these links...
I think Im still fit to drive
Fitness to Drive: British Driving and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) downloadable PDF ‘at a glance’ guide on fitness to drive
It really starts to drag and although i think this sort of stuff will be useful for my other website I'm not so sure anyone will acually click on them! Never mind. I'll still use them
