I am working on a new hub, which will include video. I made the videos myself and uploaded them to the "my videos" section of my account. I began a video hub using one of them. I want to add more video clips to the hub, but it seems that I can only important more videos from outside of hubpages. Can I have more than one "Hubpages video capsule" in my hub? If so, how do I do that? Or do I have to import them from YouTube? (I would rather just have them hosted here, as I don't have a YouTube account.) If not, may I suggest that this be added as a capsule option? Any help here would be appreciated.
I'm afraid that, just like with YouTube, only one clip can be uploaded per page, so adding additional footage from YouTube or Vimeo is probably your best bet.
This sounds like it's going to be a great resource! Props for including so many supplementary clips!
Thanks, Simone. I guess it is time to venture into creating a YouTube account.
Intresting. I can't seem to upload videos directly to HP but have to post all of them to YouTube before I can use them here. Must be doing something wrong.
You're welcome Blossom, maybe we can both get a useful answer.
I uploaded them under 'My account" "videos." I didn't upload them directly into a hub. They were wmv format. It worked just like uploading photos. Frankly, the quality is better in that video than the YouTube videos I was able to create. I would love the option of hosting all the videos here, even though posting to YouTube turned out to be simple. This process will take a little learning, I think.
It's actually a good thing to post them on Youtube first, because that way you get double exposure.
Thanks, Marisa. I set it up today. Had I known it was that easy, I would have started posting videos ages ago. I just published my new hub on How to create an e-card using powerpoint. Check it out!
Can I make money off of ads that are on the videos on YouTube? Do I have to set that up, or will it automatically work since I signed in using my google sign in?
Once you create a youtube channel,there is an option in channel settings --> Monetization, you can link your adsense account to that or if you doesn't have an adsense account yet, you can create from youtube channel.
Youtube will approve your account if it solely contains your own video.
Thanks. I am sure I can find further info at YouTube when I find a minute. I appreciate your input.

In order to add your own video to a hub, do you have to join youtube first, upload your video, then put it in the hub capsule? I wish I could upload my videos like I upload my photos.

I would love to see an area for text or at least a caption added to the video capsules. In almost all the videos I've posted in my hubs, I've wanted to explain a little bit of this or that about what the reader is...

I've tried both YouTube and Yahoo videos. When I enter either the link or the embed code, everything appears to be working except I cannot see or preview the videos in the capsule. I just get that funky little box with...
