Embedding Videos in WordPress: What Are The Alternatives to YouTube?
The WordPress Q & A sessions continue! We’re collecting interesting questions about WordPress from our readers, then publishing them here on the blog, in an effort to harvest the best problem-solving skills that the WPMU community can muster. Get involved here – there are glorious prizes and lots of karma points to be won.
Monday’s WordPress Question
A blog reader by the name of James has sent us the following correspondence:
I create screencasts using Quicktime, and then share to Youtube directly from the application.
What I’d like to be able to do instead, is embed my videos in a WordPress site, so I have a way to broadcast my stuff without relying on YouTube. I want to host the videos on my own server (I’m using Dreamhost).
Any ideas, plugins, or experience to share?
It’s time to shine, WordPress rockstars. Can you throw James a lifeline here? If you have an idea to share, please leave a comment after this article and give us everything you’ve got.
And if you still haven’t sent us your own WordPress question – what on earth are you waiting for? You could win a three month membership at WPMU DEV, which gives you access to hundreds of premium plugins and themes, as well as a dedicated support team of seasoned WP experts. So let’s do this thing.
