I'm just writing my first Hub (on productivity) and realized that I could illustrate the concepts really well with a video.
I'd like to post the video on YouTube (and grab the embed code for the Hub Page from there).
And in the video, I'd like to mention the name of my website at the start ... and show the URL at the end.
Would that be considered too promotional for a Hub Page?
Thanks for the guidance, SweetiePie and College!
A follow-up question that has occurred to me, based on C.P.'s reply ...
If I'm showing my own website URL in the video, it would NOT be appropriate to link to that website anywhere within the text of the hub.
Have I got that right?
I think it would depend whether you were linking to a range of reference sites, or just one.
I don't think hubpages can "see" a URL in a YouTube video anyway
Many thanks, guys.
I want to make sure to be wearing a White Hat with my first hub.
It would have gone completely unnoticed if you hadn't mentioned it

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.

How do you properly cite the music used in a video? I found the music on a "free" download site. I cited this site as the source of the music. I believe I should have given credit to the song artist. This being my first video; I am unsure of the correct...

Help! I woke up this morning to find that one of my mid-range performing hubs, "What is Creation, by Definition?" (http://lauraschneider.hubpages.com/hub/What-is-creation) had plummeted to a score of 55. It was 74 on Sept. 8th, 2013, and I know it is a well-written article with 3...
