I may have missed the announcement, but I can't remember seeing this type of video capsule before (can take a minute to load, right at the top of the hub). Or am I just really behind?
I don't know if it is across the board for all Hubbers yet but some Hubbers can host videos on Hubpages from their account/s on a Beta trial.

The new video feature is in beta testing. Only a few hubbers have it. Those that asked and are favorites of staff. I asked and never heard back. Though I have been less than flattering of HP staff as of late.
I do like the new format. The look is cleaner than You Tube videos.
Ok thanks everyone. Guess I missed that update!
Keith, are you still leaving? Or what's happening with you. I did read your big thread a few months back.
I've cooled down... a bit. I haven't published a hub in a while but may do so from time to time. I unpublished some hubs too. I am unhappy here, but consider it a resource. Thanks for the kind words, WryLit. I consider people like you a friend, making it hard to leave completely.
I missed it too but that's probably my fault for not being online when it was posted. I can say that after seeing a few hubs that have these videos, I'm not impressed. In fact, I think they load very slow and when I go to a page that has one and all I see is white space for a second or two, I'm immediately discouraged and ready to click away. I would definitely encourage users of this video type to place them lower in the hub and have some written content ready as soon as the page loads. Seriously, you may have the best video on the internet but if you don't catch my attention right away, you never will.
Agreed. If I hadn't seen the video icon on Robin's profile page and was curious as to what it meant, I wouldn't have stayed. Took about 10 seconds to fully load and start the video for me, although my computer isn't the fastest.
It rolled out a while back for some hubbers. I was asked but I haven't taken time to put a video together. I also saw this thread a couple of weeks ago open to the community. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/90307

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 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...

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...
