I am trying to upload several short videos I created (each one a few seconds long) to one hub. I can only see a way to either create a video hub and add ONE video, or to add as many 3rd-party videos to a normal hub as I want, but not a way to upload more than one video hosted by HubPages to my hub.
What am I missing?
I'm pretty sure you can only add one video to a video Hub. Only other option is to create videos on YouTube and put them in the Hub.
I don't think you're missing anything, I'm pretty sure you're right.
Honestly, it hardly matters because by far the best way is to upload them to Youtube, then create a Hub and embed them.
That's because you get two bites of the search engine cherry that way - once on Youtube and once on HubPages. We've had a few people who have tried doing video Hubs here and found they don't do all that well for traffic compared to the same video on Youtube. Once you have a good presence on Youtube you may be able to monetize your videos there too.

Thanks, Marisa...but not with the quality of my videos (which are basically 20-second video clips produced on a 15-year-old digital camera).
Speaking of which...anybody have any recommendations for any good video recorders for making YouTube videos?

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.

Can you upload a video to a Hub that you've made an article Hub and not a video Hub? If you have a Hub that is mainly text but want to include your own video, should you make it a video Hub or an article Hub?
