Need a place to store videos

I need a solution that will allow me to post my interactive videos , link out to various places, AND will overwrite previous versions when I have to make changes. Screencast creates a new URL each time which means I have to track down the 20 places I have the video linked to change the URL. I want to keep the same URL and I want the interactivity to work. Anyone have a viable solution?

Do you have a domain that you own with DNS?  If so, what I would do is setup a redirect with an url something like mydomain.com/video1 and have that url redirect to your screencast.com video url.  Post the mydomain.com/video1 everywhere. 

Then, when you need to update to a new video you only have to modify the DNS redirection with the new screencast.com url and it will automatically be reflected in all of the 20 places.

Hi Carey,
Screencast.com has a feature that allows you to upload and overwrite an existing feature while keeping the existing link.  Here's how:

Upload New File & Replace the Content File
  1. Double-click on the piece of content that you want to replace. The content will open in the View Page.
  2. Click the Attachments tab or click Show Details > Attachments tab.
  3. Click the Upload Attachments button.
  4. Click the Browse button. Browse and select the file to be swapped.
  5. Click Open. The upload will begin immediately.
  6. Click the red Up Arrow to the right of an attachment. The current file becomes an attachment and the attachment becomes embedded on the view page.
  7. If you would like, you can delete the old piece of content once it becomes an attachment. Click the red X to the right of an attachment. The delete will occur immediately.
I hope this helps!
Kelly

I would say that screencast.com has always been a good place in my opinion to upload any interactive video to for me. Just my suggestion. Kelly Mullins gave some great advice and instructions in the post above.
