Uploading Multiple Short Videos to One Hub

    Hello,

    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?

    Thanks!

      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?

      OK, so that means you may not get to monetize your videos on Youtube.  But you still get a two-way link so it's still good for exposure.
