Hey guys - I am super new to all this about 48 hours old :) I have a basic twenty eleven wordpress.org site that is self hosted (using bluehost).
My goal is to have a vlog where I have video content on the site 2-3x weekly. I am trying to figure out how to do this and having the hardest time. I am looking for the ability to upload my videos from my computer to my site (they are over 10 mb so I cant just use the post page).
I can't seem to figure out how to get them on my bluehost account and it doesnt make sense to me to pay for another video hosting service when I am already paying for bluehost with file space.
YouTube urls alone are an undesirable option for me because I have a lot of kids watching my videos and I cant control the content that shows up when the video is done (recommended video thumbnails). It was for this reason that I decided to do a site in the first place.
Does anyone know how I can get those files on my bluehost server and then loaded on my site . . . or . . . Is there a theme or a plug in that does this or do I just have to bite the bullet and find a video hosting service to get urls to embed?
Thanks so much in advance for your help - I have googled and searched WP codex for the answer for 2 days and still cant find what I am looking for.
Much much much appreciation - Rachel Kim
