Website Video Upload Procedure

So let's review the procedure for going from video tape to web-based video.

Step one: Send a tape to VideoSilo (NOTE: I have received some complaints about VideoSilo and there is a negative comment below--you may want to look for an alternative service) and request a DV file instead of (or in addition to) a DVD.

Step two (optional): If the file size is over 50MB download DivX and drop the file on the converter window to get a compressed DivX file.

Step three: Decide which online service you want to use and set up an account with them.

Step four: Upload the file to the service.

Step five: Copy the "embed video on a web page" code snippet they'll provide and paste it onto your web page. Videos can be added to any page of a Newfangled site by simply pasting the code snippets into the text area field on any page's editing screen.

That's it. The video will display in a player on the page to be enjoyed by all. With the exception of sending a tape to VideoSilo (see note above), I followed all these steps with each of the services we've mentioned. And I've embedded all five players below to show how each service's players look and how they work. Quick and easy video on the web--now that's a good thing.
