I want to host simple, short .mov files, in full quality, in which the url is directly a .mov url, not something like Youtube or Photobucket, but rather where the url ends in ".mov"--a direct .mov url--and the Quicktime movie then simply plays in the browser against a white background (as usual for urls that end in .mov). I used to use a web page I paid for, and would just put whatever files I wanted onto its ftp and link people to them that way, but am now looking for an alternative method (instead of paying another $260 to have the web site hosting service for another 3 years, which isn't worth it just to host a dozen .mov files). What site, if you know of one, offers a way to simply host .mov files somewhere, such that I can link people to the direct files, such that, in this case, I'm linking them to a url that ends in ".mov"? Chances are I'm looking for a site that allows you to host whatever type of file, but the .mov makes a good example.

EDIT: Nevermind, I found out that Dropbox does this. Thanks!
