Dreamhost sounds pretty great (!), and i'll probably move over to them 
but perusing their features has raised some questions regarding hosting 
videos... namely their feature for Quicktime Streaming (which they 
point out is NOT support for live broadcasting) vs. how i've been 
delivering movies for years, via HTTP on my own site, with .mov files 
enclosed in html pages.  For vloggers, is there any benefit (or 
detriment) to utilizing the host's QT streaming (Darwin) server?  You 
have to make your movie "hinted", and you need to create and upload to 
a specific subdomain.  Heck, i have so many archived movies, i'd prefer 
to just d/l my whole site from the old server and upload it as-is to 
Dreamhost; but i want to make sure that there's no downside as to how 
they host HTTP video files, as compared to other hosts.... in other 
words, do they offer Quicktime Streaming in order to make up for some 
deficiency in how HTTP video files are handled on their server?  Please 
excuse my ignorance of the technology here, but before i sign up and 
begin the process, i want to rule out any unforeseen hassles.  And i 
think i'm still happily in shock about the new pricing(!) (as compared 
to what i currently pay Hummingbird Hosting.)

So if anyone could explain the QT streaming vs. HTTP situation, i'd be 
most appreciative!

And Matt, thanks for the Dreamhost referral!  if i sign up, i'll be 
sure to use your referral promo code.
$50 off any plan as well?  (or is this just the waiving of the set-up
