Online Flash Video in 16:9 aspect ratio ... without letterboxing

I have some video on our web site.  We don't have the option of hosting the video ourselves so I've been using google video until now.  Our previous video was all 4:3, but the latest was shot in 16:9.  Google adds black bars to the video to force a 4:3 ratio.

Does anyone know of a host that leaves video in it's native resolution?  I've tried youtube and yahoo video as well with no sucess.

Sorry i'm not aware of a site that allows you to do this. Depending on how important this is and how much space you have available I would look at hosting the video yourself.

I found this:

It's not flash though, so I think we'll stick with google video for now.  Requiring users to install the divx web player isn't worth the trade off.
