How to Upload a Video and Embed it on Your Website

If you’re just starting out in online video, you might not be ready to pay for an OVP (online video provider). Maybe hosting your videos on a free site likeĀ  YouTube or Vimeo is more your speed. If so, watch this video tutorial.

In it, Jan Ozer walks you through the process of uploading your work. You’ll also learn how to copy the embed code from your hosted video, so you can include your video on your own website or blog.

If you need a little help preparing your videos so they’re ready for upload, check out Ozer’s guide to encoding videos for user-generated content (UGC) sites like YouTube and Vimeo.
