One of the commonly asked questions about video blogging or video marketing is: “How do I embed video on my blog or site?” I answer that question in the video below.
As you can see, you have several options, from the completely free one (YouTube), to paid options with a range of features.
If you're just starting out, why not start with the easiest and free option? As your use of video grows, then you can begin to invest in hosting your video on Amazon S3 and a paid FLV player.
I forgot to mention that another disadvantage of using YouTube is that, when viewers click on the video itself (which some people feel compelled to do), they'll get redirected to the YouTube site. This is NOT good at all, if you're using the video on an opt-in page or a sales page, because you don't want your viewers getting lost in YouTube.
If I missed other options, or if you have follow-up questions, please post them in the comments section below.
