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.

I would love to see an area for text or at least a caption added to the video capsules. In almost all the videos I've posted in my hubs, I've wanted to explain a little bit of this or that about what the reader is...

I've tried both YouTube and Yahoo videos. When I enter either the link or the embed code, everything appears to be working except I cannot see or preview the videos in the capsule. I just get that funky little box with...
