Default Uploading Videos?

Is there a way to upload a video to this site without going through Youtube?

I'm sorry. We never were able to afford video hosting. It's a goal we have for the future.

No problem. Thanks for the answer.

Today I saw a brown creeper in my yard. It is his (or her) second visit. This time I was able to get a video of it. I wanted to upload it to my blog. There *used to be* an icon for uploading videos. It is not there any more! :-(

I wanted to share the video here anyway, so I thought I'd rather link from here than Youtube.

Thanks anyway.

We were able to add YouTube embedding. You can pick up the URL from YouTube.

Thanks, I might end up doing it that way. I just wish Blogger didn't remove that feature.

I finally was able to get video uploaded onto my blog--I had to use an older version to find the video icon. I'd like to add the video here, but not sure how. Is there a way to upload videos or just a link to a video?

We haven't been able to add video hosting.

YouTube videos should automatically appear in the message box when the url is added to a post.

You can still hyperlink to a video, I do it at all the time. Basically you use the little globe with a chain on it and paste in the url to the video. If you post it on youtube they will see an embedded player though and won't have to follow an offsite link. Flickr allows 10 meg of video on free accounts, too.

Thanks, I'm gonna try link here to see if the actual video shows up, if not, I'll do the Youtube thing. (I don't want anyone to have to link off-site to see it).

I tried and it only put the link when I checked preview. Okay...now I have to figure out the Youtube thing.

Thanks again for your help, mdiwesternerr and Fearless Weeder.
