Amazon S3 will host individual files up to 5 GB, but it's paid, not
free hosting.

Archive.org will host CC-licensed theora content; you could check if
your copyleft license is suitable for them. They will transcode it to
patent-encumbered MPEG formats as well; I don't know if that's
objectionable to you.

Completely tangentially, what do you consider the 'preferred format
for modification' for these pieces if it's under copyleft? (As opposed
to Creative Commons.) Theora is pretty lossy for a mastering format,
and of course it's already been edited down...
