Hi Guys,

Hey KB,

Here's one that works pretty good:

Thanks,

Just wondering...

Would it be better to host videos on your webhost? Or upload them to a channel on youtube and link to them?
Those files can be BIG!  :thinking:

The answer is ...it depends!  Some things to consider...youtube pays you once you have 1 million total views (for a particular youtube profile)...bandwidth usage (do you have one of those hosting accounts that will shut you down for too much bandwidth usage and you not even know it?)...hosting storage (what's your total storage capacity and how many videos do you plan to have on your site(s)?)

RRW has some good links.  If you do a product search for video plugin I found a lot of files using those keywords so here is the ones that stand out the most.

Video Analytics Plugin
Featured Video Plus
Video Skins Pro
Using Video on Your Websites

These are just 4 of the many plugins or instructions to embedding video on your website. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the input guys.

Yes..that was what I was wondering, Jerome..which would be the best way to do it. What do you think of this plan: host the videos on youtube as private and embed them on the page I want to use them on..then later possibly make them public as views increase. My thought was to use them as content enhancement primarily, then later some links in the description to the website to draw traffic.

I have never used youtube or videos before..trying to figure out how to implement them into my efforts.

Thanks again! Any thoughts or advice is most welcome!

  My suggestion, make the videos public and use them for content enhancement (i.e. embedding them on your blog).  If you have them embedded on your blog, they can still click the view on youtube button.  Also I dont believe you can embed a private video on your personal page, I know you can embed an unlisted one. When you put a video up on youtube you have a description section, that is where you would put any details (including links).  As I have said before youtube will pay you once you have 1 million total views on your channel so why not start getting views now?
