Would I benefit more posting videos on HubPages or YouTube?
I am thinking of adding more videos to some older hubs. I only have one video hub, and I uploaded the video straight to HubPages. Do you think it would get more views and help the article more if I posted directly to HubPages, or put it on YouTube and linked to it in my hub?
I don't think it would hurt to do so, no. I would recommend putting it on your YouTube channel and then linking it in HubPages, so then people can go onto that site if they're more comfortable there (or due to playback options). You might even get some subscribers out of it too, so I would recommend uploading to YT, rather than putting the raw video on HP.
As I'm no expert in video hubs though I can't say for sure.
I would highly recommend putting the video on YouTube rather than HP. If your older hubs are doing well, I would leave them alone. Plus, there are several perks for adding videos to YouTube. Including a base of followers.
I agree with JohnGG. If you upload your videos to YouTube and then link to your hubs, you will get a lot of traffic direct from YouTube. I sometimes just look at videos randomly on YouTube when I've got 5 minutes to spare (waste!)
If you only upload them to HubPages then you are only going to get traffic from people who are looking for info-type articles.
I do agree with earlier advises to upload the videos to YouTube as your videos may get more popularity when bloggers like me embed the good informative videos into their blog posts. YouTube videos can not only be linked with HP but also create more followers through other media too.

Hi, my lenses were imported yesterday and the lenses that had YouTube videos are not showing the videos on the Hub versions. The original video module title shows on the hub, but no video. I haven't checked all of them yet, but this affects at least 8 of my hubs and I haven't found any...

I am absolutely distraught. Some of my best hubs contain youtube videos. I have found that anyone logged into hubpages can see my videos without any problem. Today my Dad happened to be looking at my hubs and said "there are no videos here". Stunned, I went onto hubpages and logged out of...
