    I think all you'll need to do is create the video file, upload the file to your server, and then link it from one of your posts. I don't know how what HTML tag you'd have to use to get the movie to display directly in your posts though...

    For Quicktime movies, here's what you want:

    <object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" width="320" height="256" standby="Data is loading..." codebase="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab">
    <param name="autoplay" value="true">
    </param><param name="controller" value="true">
    <embed src="http://yourblog.com/where_your_movie_is/movie.mov" width="320" height="256" autoplay="true" controller="true" type="video/quicktime" pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/">
    </embed>
    </param></object>

    Some important notes about the above code:

    1) This is set for autoplay and controller both ON. That is, the little controller bar with the play button and progress indicator is enabled. Once the download is reached a certain percentage (I think something like 10%), the movie will begin to play. Those both can be turned off in the code.

    2) If you leave the controller bar ON, then you have to adjust for the new larger height of your movie. For instance, if you movie were 320 x 240, then the overall height of the displayed movie will need to be 16 pixels larger for the bar. In the above code, I've already compensated for this. The new dimensions are 320 x 256. To find out the dimensions of your movie, open it up in QuickTime and go to Windows | Show Movie Info.

    3) If you want to center the movie or right justify or something, just wrap the whole thing in paragraph tags with inline style editing:

    <p style="text-align:center;"> ALL THE ABOVE CODE HERE </p>

    AB1, I forgot to add that my code works after what Avenir said. Upload your movie first, start a new post, and then past all that code.

    I have a video blog to share my Telly award winning PSA series...check out http://www.yaaaonline.com. View the source, and grab the embed code.

    As soon as I figure out how to make plugins, I'll create one for this method, so it's a button click away, and all you have to do is upload.

    Just make sure your vids are optimized for the web...
