"Stage6.com has been shut down. Thank you for supporting the service."The existing videos still stream, so for now they're good where they are, but we needed a new host that provides us with the same or better features.
Quickly, StepOne found a loophole in blip.tv that enables us to upload h264-videos without having them recompressed to flash video thus staying in control of resolution, quality and file size. It's a lot different than creating a standart divx-avi file though.
If you want to follow the existing tutorial, you can use use vreel.net instead if stage6.
