While your WordPress site allows you to host video there, I’m a fan of uploading my videos to other hosts and using the embed code to place the videos in WordPress. There are a lot of great options for hosting your video like Schooltube, Youtube and Vimeo. Each have their benefits. This tutorial will show you how to take a video you’ve already uploaded to Youtube and embed it into a WordPress post. While I am not getting into the other sites here, the process is much the same once you find the embed code.
