    I have the same problem. After reading some threads, the common thing seems to be that if you host your own blog (i.e. that the blog is not on wordpress.com, but on your own domain) that way of doing it is not valid.

    We might have to use a video plugin. I'll try that and see if it helps.

    Quick answer ... create an account at YouTube or whatever host you prefer. Upload your videos there. You wil then have embed codes that you can use on WP.

    Great idea! Uploading the video onto Youtube saves space too. The uploading may be a very long time for a 50MB file, right? Is there a way to shrink the video a little? thanks.

    That's okay. It's been uploaded, but the video is basically in green color and not clear at all. The *.wmv file play fine in the Real Player locally though. Any ideas if I can fix the quality of the video.

    The time to transfer the video from your system to YT depends, of course, on your internet connection. My connection allows a 50mb upload in about 10 seconds - yous will vary.

    The main benefit of this is that you don't use your bandwidth or storage space for all your videos - you are linking to someplace elce and using theirs.

    I'm not an expert with videos or editing. I imagine there might be a way to compress them some, but any time you do things like that you will deteriorate the video. That is perhaps why your video is of poor quality? A web search for "video compression" might be helpful. Other than that - videos are out of my field.
