In the earlier days of WikiEducator, some used blip.tv for delivering their openly licensed videos. blip.tv changed their business model a couple of years ago, but still didn't find success and shut down their service entirely last month. This message is a gentle reminder that if you relied on blip.tv in some of your resources, it is time to update your wiki pages.
As the blip.tv story illustrates, large scale video hosting is hard. If your video is openly licensed, in an open format (or can be converted), and of general interest, the Wikimedia Commons may be appropriate. Vimeo is another option for some organizations. Or simply linking to an external source will always work.
