I personally never like to upload files because the upload speed that I get from my Internet Service Provider is terribly slow. Mirroring files USED to be a big problem and something that I NEVER do because uploading to a file sharing website already takes forever, not to mention uploading to a few more file sharing sites. Thanks to a few useful websites that I found which is able to easily upload to multiple free file hosting servers by just uploading once. It is really useful and simple. You are only required to upload your file to a website, then the website will help you distribute your file to other file hosting websites. This saves me a lot of time and bandwidth.
That is for file sharing. What about videos? Videos are quite big in file size and there are so many video sites such as YouTube, Google Video, MetaCafe and a lot more! What if you have a very interesting video that you want to share with everyone? If you’ve read this article, you no longer need to waste your time and bandwidth to upload your videos site by site. It is also the same concept as the above file sharing method. You only need to upload your video once and it will automatically distribute or syndicate to more than 10 video sites. The more video websites that your video appears in, the more exposures you will get!
Before using the free services below to upload your videos to multiple video websites, you need to have an account at the destination first. For example, you want to the service to upload to YouTube and Google Video, you need to have an account there which you can sign up for free.

There are software that can automate uploading to multiple video sites but I decide not to write about it because you still need to waste time and bandwidth in uploading the videos. The only good thing about the software is it simplifies the process by doing it automatically. If you still want to know, you can try to look for Video Post Robot which supports uploading to 21 video sites and Video Upload Pro which supports 18 video sites. Nope, couldn’t find any serial number, crack or retail versions for Video Post Robot and Video Upload Pro, so don’t ask me.
Enjoy uploading your videos to more video sites with any of the free service above and get more exposures!
