More and more websites are including video on them.  We often get questions on how to  publish a video on your website.  Web Services’ recommended solution is to upload the video to YouTube or Vimeo and use their embedded browser.

  1. They’ve built a business on it.  Their servers are set up to stream video.
  2. They have the bandwidth.  Instead of using CU*Answers’ hosting bandwidth, use theirs and send it directly to your visitor.
  3. They’ve already done all the hardwork to make an embeddable video player.
  4. It’s easy.

Lifehacker has put together a simple set of instruction on how to upload a video to YouTube.  Once it’s up on YouTube you can then embed it on your website.  If you are using WordPress with SiteControl, there is even a simple code you can use.
