Video Media In WordPress April 18, 2010

You can make link to a video or you can embed a video onto a WordPress page.

Embedding just means having HTML code that allows visitors to view a video without leaving the page, and WordPress handles all of that for you with the Embed Media button. Clicking on it produces the popup window from which you can choose the type of file you will upload, the url of the file (if needed), and the dimensions of the file.

Unfortunately, you have to pay a little extra to embed a video on a page in an otherwise free WordPress blog.

I like the straight forward but not the answer. LOL
I do not know why that feature or widget costs on a Blog? I can see if you are using bandwidth but not if you are parking the vid on ones own hosting server.
