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.

This Hub has failed QAP due to spammy elements. I know that means the Amazon capsules, but honestly - if genuine product reviews like this can't pass QAP, things have become ridiculous: Recommended DVD's for Male Ballet Dancers. If I remove all the Amazon capsules, I feel like adding an...

Hi Everyone,I have just published my latest puppy training hub and I am wondering should I use a video? I haven't used videos before as I am not sure of the rules for example with YouTube?If you don't mind and have some time take a look and see if you think a video would be useful, any comments...

I know that hubpages is strict about violations and copyright but is it a violation to post a youtube video in your hub, which you know includes copyrighted material, which the one uploading the video did not have permission to upload? Like a movie clip or a song lyrics video. I know the internet...

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. So I'm pretty proud that the editors didn't feel the need to change, or add,...
