I have a private blog I use for travel that I update on my laptop, but we are limited on our monthly data with our Mifi. I’ve watched your video on inserting videos into a blog. The videos I want to include are various 1 min videos from our dash cam that are 126mb in size. We have been emailing them to the blog (after watching your other video) because they are currently stored on my husband’s Mac. But we have gotten kickback about the size when we email so we’ve had to change the resolution which isn’t satisfactory once uploaded. When I email pictures in a “medium” size, they are fine. Is there a more efficient way to get videos uploaded? I have resisted using You Tube because I prefer keeping them private. Any suggestions?
I think you’ll find that Youtube is really the best way to go. Just wait until sometime that you have free WiFi and upload the videos to Youtube. Then use the Embed technique to add them to the blog. They don’t have to be public in youtube. There is a setting for “Unlisted” – that means that nobody just surfing or searching on Youtube can find your video, but people looking at your blog can see it.
Do you use Google Photos? If so, then having your videos on Google photos means that you can add a link to your blog that takes the reader to the video. But, you can’t embed them. Meaning, people have to click the link, they can’t see the video live on the page of your blog.
