Best free place to host dj mixes?

Post by claudek » Sat May 13, 2006 11:28 am

Anyone know of a place I can upload and freely stream
my dj mixes (About 98mb)?
I used to use MixUpload but not free anymore. :(((
Thanks in advance

You know, someone should set up a special yousendit type site just for mix hosting. You can score affordable, high bandwidth hosting if you don't mind sharing your server with porno sites. :)

I wouldn't mind undertaking a project like this at some point... there seems to be enough demand for such a service. However, I don't really have time to write more PHP at the moment, so I'm just tossing the thought out here... ;)

I currently run a site called Spinback which offers DJs a free blog/podcast site with 100MB of web space.

Check it out as it's all free..

Could I ask you how much bandwidth per month your site uses?

Do you mean how much bandwidth is available or the amount of bandwidth used? If you mean how much available bandwidth - then this isn't really an issue.
We try to provide as much bandwidth as possible, and any money raised from web space purchases or google ads goes back into the site, so the more people who use the site and the more popular it becomes, the more bandwidth will be utilised. We so far haven't had any bandwidth problems as we are currently operating with a standard 300GBp/m. For around 10 users with each having one 75MB mix set, thats 400 downloads for each user. The more users we get, the more bandwidth we can provide. Extra bandwidth costs are very low nowadays, and we operate on our own private server so there isn't any shared hosting.

As we're a free service, we are trying to offer as much as possible and inevitably there may be a day or so where we cannot provide enough bandwidth, but we hope to fix any problems that may arise within a few hours. (Our hosting company can instantly up the bandwidth once notified - so we can provide as litle downtime as possible)

clue me on this :
how come you can't "share" a track as it is, understandably, protected by copyrights, if you broadcast on radio, tv, webradio, you have to pay collecting rights society, but you can share DJ mixes which is no different than a radio, tracks shared in a certain order, without paying anything ?
is it not illegal ?

DJ's don't have enough money to sue you. Record labels do.

sorry ? what do you mean ?
Why would DJs sue ? They're the ones to be sued if they broadcast without authorization
