Is anyone making their own videos for hubs?
I am almost done making my first one from scratch. I was wondering if other people have ventured down this road. It is pretty time consuming.
Oh yes. Let me tell you my story.
I joined YouTube in November and I made many mistakes and my account was suspended. I was creating instructional videos and using the websites I belong to as a way of showing people how to navigate and how to use all the features each website had.
I worked it and I got 3500 views in two months and 46 subscribers. I feel that is pretty good for someone who just started. I was cranking out the videos.
Anyway, my heart was broke and I took down all of the video from YouTube that I had placed into my Hubs.
I'm happy that I made my mistakes at YouTube.
Starting this week I am creating massive videos to a video website called Flixya.com. They let their members earn revenue from Adsense impression and I believe Flixya keep the revenue earned from clicks. But having video in addition to all the articles I have created will hugely increase my traffic. I've already lived it and done it and it works. Best of luck.
I think that the best tactic would be to produce your own videos, upload them to a YouTube account, and THEN embed them into your hubpages...
In the long term, if you get a decent amount of page views, you could earn a lot of AdSense revenue through the YouTube partner programme... Your Hubpages views are included in your YouTube stats, I think its 250,000 views on good quality videos that you need....
I am considering uploading a load of videos, although I am merely an amatuer, I would need to take a lot of footage to achieve that figure.
The ideal strategy would be to drive traffic from your YouTube video description to your hubpages, whilst achieving video views for YouTube from your hubpages....
I'm sure that there are also other ways and sites which allow monetisation of video footage...
This is something which I am considering pursuing myself, I just need to remember to take my camcorder around with me on trips away etc....
I know a few people who are making a bomb on YouTube as partners, although admittedly their productions are broadcast quality and highly original.
I have had my own VLOG for some time. I do it just for the hate-mail.
These have yet to earn me any hate yet but I am hopeful.
My advise, don't ever do a video dissing straight-razors unless you like the flood of hate-mail then in that case do lots of them.

I've done a few simple ones for a couple of Hubs. It's not that time consuming but then again my few attempts have been footage I shot while traveling so imagery and me talking in the background (or in the shot) was sufficient.
Me talking while riding a SF cable car was a tad noisy but then again, so is the actual experience.
I'm trying to edit some stuff together from my trip to Costa Rica. The noise in the jungle was so phenomenal I shot footage just to demonstrate how deafening it can be.
I never have due to the amount of time it takes, but it will be interesting to see how it works for you. In any case, it proves (or at least supports) your expertise/knowledge in a particular area.
Ive done one video, and will try to add more videos in the future. I try not to place youtube videos on my hubs unless they add real value. i.e. not just for the sake of adding a video.
My husband did one but not for HP, its for our travel blog. He really used up a lot of time to finish the video but he found immense satisfaction after it was done. He felt he just leveled up
Ok, I uploaded it. Any suggestions are welcome, although it is a niche topic so you may not understand what is going on.

I went to go watch your video and as usual with YouTube I waited 3 minutes for it to process or uplaod. I suggest you make the capsule smaller. I have a few videos embedded into my Hubs and I found better success using Dailymotion, break and meta cafe. For some reason it worked better.
Let me know when you get the video up.
Haven't tried yet, would like to soon. Seems like there is so much you want to line up first, to be able to promote!
I've started making a lot of videos of the theme parks here in Orlando. I am posting them to a dozen or so tube places besides youtube.
I've placed some in hubs but most of them are just for driving traffic to my own websites. I like doing them and it gets me out of the house!
I keep meaning to make my own video's never get around to it though!
I just started doing this, I did a video of my grandson walking on my hub about Infant toddler shoes. (His new Robeez) I plan to do alot more, I think it's lends more creative control and credibility if you can add your own video. I'm using the small wonder camcorder which syncs easily with Youtube. I'm excited about adding this to my hubs.
I've heard that video is going to get really big.
Alan, that is a very good video you have made there, well done.
I wrote a hub on cam studio, free source, for onscreen video making and it attracted a lot of attention. I think a lot of hubbers would like to both learn and use their own videos in their hubs.
I know I do.
I made my own video just last week and will probably do much more in the future. It's fun and I think it adds a certain sense of reality to the hubs.
I am not allowed to post the types of videos that I enjoy making at home
I am new to HP (have just created one hub so far) but I really like using animoto to create videos and have been using them in a number of places to add interesting content.
My nephew is a professional film editor and we are working on a series of videos for Cape Cod Travel Hubs. It's much harder work than I imagined. And the camera does add 10 extra pounds. So I've been dieting and working out in case we decide to put me in the videos.
im starting to make videos with a powerpoint presentation and a voice over. i like them because there easy to make.
I'm making drawing videos about drawing fantasy art inspiration type stuff and it's certainly been a learning curve through editing video content and uploading the videos to my youtube account, revver account and other video uploading sites.
My youtube username is waynetully1 if anyone is interested in seeing some drawing videos as I've done over 160 of them!
I have a few videos that I created for the sole purpose of featuring on my hubs, they have lots of views but I never considered linking back to HP - fool!
I need to go make some changes . . .

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...

I have never really looked into, do you just basically make a video or does it need a lot of accompanying contect? How do they perform here compared to content only Hubs?

All I know is that even though many of my articles appear first page, first position on Google that the ads and YouTube vids appear before that. Should I start making "videos" for my niche? I also know that...

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...

Can you upload a video to a Hub that you've made an article Hub and not a video Hub? If you have a Hub that is mainly text but want to include your own video, should you make it a video Hub or an article Hub?
