It's hard to get something for nothing. Your best bet is to do your free site, wherever you can, and post your videos on YouTube. YouTube provides a link that you can paste into your site.

Hosting is dirt cheap now. For about $6-10 a month you can have a fully functional site complete with some pretty decent file storage capacity.

Or, if you have a high speed connection and you're not doing it commercially, pay a dollar or two more to your ISP for a fixed IP address. That way your home computer can operate as your web server as well.

I agree.
There are some free sites out there.
But there a lot of annoying popup ads.
If you really need it to be free, you can check out geocities

Or, if you don't want to pay this, use your dynamic IP address (mine changes infrequently; generally only when I shut down my router) and the dynDNS.com service.

You can use FreeWebs as a way of getting a free site, but, you'd need to host the videos elsewhere. If you plan on offering lots of videos, then, unless you are prepared to use something like YouTube, it's going to be expensive, as streaming can gobble up usage allocations quickly. If you go for a commercial hosting option, check the terms of your contract, as some hosts prohibit media streaming because of the high upload.

A lot of people don't realize their ISP provides space for their users and their sites. I would check into that.

Ditto...most, is not all, ISP provide at least 10 MB of free space on their servers. You can get online free HTML editors and FTP programs to upload your content.
