    hi everyone,

    Would be good to know what platform or website language you are familiar with. Video is a mixed bag and has multiple considerations, some publishing platforms can do it automatically if you provide the right code, there are also a large number of video scripts and plugins that will help you along the way. You need to consider also things like your hosting allowance both for space and also traffic. These are some of the reasons why people post to YouTube and then provide links from their website. YouTube covers both the hosting, traffic and making the video compatible with the users requirements.

    Have you tried JW Player?

    It's one of the more popular, free video players out there. You download and install the Javascript code, convert your movie files to FLV (using another free tool like Riva FLV Encoder) and load them up by following JW Player's instructions.

    It's copy-and-paste easy.

    These days though, I like uploading the videos to Vimeo and embedding the videos to my webpages that way. Saves my server space, plus I get a couple extra views from Vimeo itself.

    Hi Sogan.
    The easiest way is that you can create a free website with wordpress or blogspot. Video you can upload to youtube and get code placed on your website

    Shaun, jwPlayer is not free, unless it's used for non-commercial use.
    I think the best way is to put it on YouTube or Vimeo, as stevenjohn212 says.
    Their players are optimized for loading and you don't have to worry about the code.

    If you are a programmer you may use the YouTube API to make your uploads easier.

    Wow, look at that. It used to be free some years ago, I think. It looks a lot different now too.
