How Video Upload Sites Work.
Video upload sites usually require you to have an account in order to have the full benefits of being a member. Without an account you are restricted to just watching and enjoying the videos although you can still share them.
After you create an account you can then upload your video, which will be hosted on the video upload site, using a special form. Once the video is uploaded it will be given a special url which gives the video a special location on the network.
The user will then tag each video with special keywords which will be used for finding your video and for placing it as a related video to similar ones on the video upload site. This makes finding your video an easy task for other users since it will appear alongside other popular videos with the same tag.
Users can then comment on your video if they like it (or if they don't) and also rate it (5 stars would be great). The can also grab the url and place it on their own website or page or if its the case of a social network like Myspace, add it to their page. Most video upload sites are also social networks.
Sites like Hubpages.com also integrate videos from these video upload sites so its easy to share your videos across the internet.
