I would really like it if we could upload one of our own videos in the video capsule like we can in the video hub format, but instead we can only use a video that is already on the net. It's not always convenient to use the 'video' hub format when posting a video in a hub so there is no other option but to upload videos to the net first just so we can use them in a video capsule in 'article' hub.
I'll bring your recommendation up in this upcoming week's community, sleepylog!
The reason why it is the way it is is that we are following best practices with regard to video hosting on set pages. There might be additional issues of which I am not aware. I suppose we'll find out more when I bring it up with the team!
Hey again sleepylog! We just talked it over and are happy to provide the capability so long as it's possible. The one hitch is that HubPages-hosted videos might not be embeddable at this point , which would mean that they could not be used in the Video Capsule. I'm checking to see whether this is the case right now. I'll keep you posted.

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'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...

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...
