Videos are very popular nowadays. Technical and technological advancements encouraged people to shoot, install, upload and display videos. Video cassettes were very popular in recent past which are replaced by CDs and then by DVDs. Videos provide us with vivid description of an event. People use videos for various purposes such as entertainment, learning, news, advertisement etc.

It is easy to install a video nowadays. There are several tools available in the internet space to install a video.

The next question comes where do you want to install a video? Do you want to install it in your personal computer (PC) or in a web site or web page? Do you want to install it in Hub pages? Installing a video is similar to "upload a Video" or "Save a video" for laymen. However, Installing is technically different from Uploading and saving a Video.

Click "edit" in video capsule and it will be opened. You will see capsule subtitle at the top. Fill this up with relevant sub title. There is "Video URL or Embed Code" at the center of this capsule. Post URL or Embed code to that place. Click "Preview video" and see whether your desired video is appearing or not. In most of the cases it appears in a moment. If not, check your URL or Embed code and re post it.

Hubpages support Videos from You tube, Google, Yahoo. Metacafe, Blip TV, Revver and Vimeo sites for installing Video in your Hubs. You can add as many Videos as you wish to your hubs. Remember that you have to use separate Video capsules to install each video.

Copy and save a video in your PC
