Would these be torrented, or http direct download?

I thought the deal with the new torrent server was that we got disk
space and bandwidth to host torrents, not direct downloads.

Hosting videos has come up a few times.  We host videos from FUDCon
because it's our event, but have not the infrastructure to host
significant amounts of video - it gets expensive (disk and bandwith
both) in a hurry, and so far we haven't found a sponsor willing to
underwrite this. may be a good place to try hosting these.
