Is it a better idea to give links of videos or put the videos on my hub when I have multiple videos?
I am doing a Hub about a website that delivers ideas via video and I posted the links but then I thought to myself "wouldn't it be easier to post the videos and cut out the middle man" would this be breaking a rule or be in anyway a bad idea?
I cannot answer you in terms of which will make you the most money, because I do not know. However, I can tell you that I will click on a video and watch it but will rarely if ever follow a link .... hope that helps!
I agree with Brett Winn, and I think embedding the video (Video capsule, then add youtube URL for example) is nice because visitors just have to click the play triangle/arrow, it seems more convenient and it adds a bit of flavor to a hubpage.
I would just like to add to the answers of Brett & easylearning that hubpages has given the option of video capsule. That means one is supposed to use them if one is thinking of incorporating a video in the hub. Leading your reader to another link is like leaving the reader midway.
I would't do it unless the video was absolutely a must and was not compatible with the list of websites whose videos can be incorporated in the capsule.

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 understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not...

I opted in to Hub Pro and I just had my first edit. Nothing was changed except to remove three of my four amazon capsules and remove links to other websites that I included to provide supporting evidence for my claims....

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time...
