i am looking for a website where i can store large movie files (like 3-4 GB) and then stream them through a program (like XMBC) to my computer. But.. if possible, have the videos optimized on the website so that they stream in like a silverlight codec or something less bandwith intensive than just a straight AVI or MPG stream....

i want this not to be like a youtube or vimeo, but more like a file repository... when i use my media center on my PC< it will stream and buffer the file...

what kind of media center / online hosting could i use for this..

(preferably media center for linux).

You could potentially host them on Windows Azure in a storage account, check the Azure CDN checkbox, and then request that Smooth Streaming be enabled on your account.  Then just upload your videos in Smooth Streaming format (perhaps encoding using Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 SP2 (http://www.microsoft.com/expressionencoder) and publishing directly to Azure with the Expression Encoder publishing plug-in for Windows Azure (http://gallery.expression.microsoft.com/EEAzurePlugin)), and build a webpage that automatically lists all the videos in your storage directory and launches an simple Silverlight player when you click on a link.

I did a demo of this at Streaming Media West last month - I'm trying to find out if the demo code is available.
