Can self-made videos stored on the hardrive be uploaded directly to a Hub, similar to uploading pictures?
If so, how?
The last time I created a hub using a video clip I don't recall seeing that as an option in the video capsule.
There is no such option, so you would have to upload it to YouTube first.
That is not exactly the answer I wanted to hear.
I wonder if it would be a good idea to add this as a feature?
I asked the question because I wanted to use some of my own video clips to produce some “How To” hubs using the video as a demonstration of the finished product or the procedure.
In the case of the hub I was going to publish first, the video shows a 25 foot outdoor, Light only, Christmas tree that changes from Red & Green to Red, White and Blue every twenty seconds, but it kind of loses impact with only still shots.
Oh well guess I’ll have to pursue publishing this elsewhere, too bad.
I wanted to please you, if I could. HubPages is unlikely to add such a feature due to copyright concerns, apart from the technical aspects. Good luck.
I didn’t intend to sound unappreciative of your efforts, I am grateful for the response, it saves me a lot of time searching around for a way to do it. Thanks for the help.
You are welcome! YouTube has some limited sharing options/private viewing options. It may be worthwhile checking out whether these can be combined with you getting the embed code to run on HubPages.
I would think that putting the videos on YouTube would be a good idea. In addition to making money through HubPages, you can also set up revenue sharing on youtube as well. If you're going to post a video, why not try to get a little pocket change while you're at it?
I haven’t used YouTube yet, other than embedding some video into a few hubs. I’ll look into it.

One of our goals this year is to simplify infrastructure and retire features that are seldom used. Deciding to retire something can be tough, but in the long run it is worth it. A leaner HubPages will not only perform better, but will allow us to focus our efforts on the features that are most...

Should HubPages have a direct video upload option?I've just got a list of movies I plan to review for HubPages, and plans for my web show "Carl the Critic" to be posted on the site. But the thing is I think that Hubpages should have an option to upload videos directly to HubPages, instead...

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...

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.
