    I need someone to walk me through how I add a video on my blog
    Not a You tube video

    Click Add Media and upload it.

    Then chose the options you want on how to insert it into the post/page.

    That will only enable you to add the video as a download - not play it online. For the latter, you need a video player plugin.

    They didn't say what they wanted it to play on their site. :)

    But ya you're right.

    Sorry. I tend to assume that embed = like a YouTube video.

    Easiest way is to go to Plugins -> Add New

    Search for "Embed Video" and find the plugin that you want. But basically it will require a video player.

    I cant recommend one because Ive never had to use them.
