    So this might be an obvious answer to some but I'm still green. Is it better to have a link to your video say Vimeo, than embed it with a custom flash player? I really want to know does it affect upload times for people viewing my site?

    Also, I want to use a particular swf gallery to display my photos, is it better for upload time to use an HTML one instead? I am looking for a gallery to post my photos into easily, but still want it to look good, what would you suggest?

    THANKS!

    Speed wise:
    an HTML link is faster than embedding video.
    an HTML gallery is faster than a flash one.

    So you're trading speed for ease and aesthetics (easier to view the video, or flashier image gallery). If this is worth it for your audience, site content, etc is something you'll need to decide.
