I finally finished editing the recordings from last years GNUstep  
developers room. I've got 10 videos, about 40 to 60 minutes each.  
That results in file sizes ranging from 670MB to 1,39GB (all videos  
together amount to 9,04GB and are in H.264 format in a .mov container).

And this is where my problems start: I wanted to upload them onto  
some online video portal. Youtube is no option since it limits the  
length of uploaded video to 10 minutes for average users (there are  
longer videos on youtube - I just don't know what to do to upload  
longer videos). Another option would have been vimeo. Now here a file  
size limit kicks in, you get only 500MB per week as a free user -  
this is less than the size of a single video I've got.

So now my question:

Would it be possible to publish my videos on http://video.fosdem.org  
or send them to you so you can upload them to youtube (I guess your  
account hasn't the 10 minutes limitation)?

Otherwise I'd have to bite the bullet and buy a vimeo plus account  
for $60 a year.
