  • Resolved Rachel Kim


    Hey guys – I am super new to all this about 48 hours old 🙂 I have a basic twenty eleven 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

  • user vimeo, as far as I know, they don’t do ads 🙂
    same principle as youtube but a much nicer company, they are the choice of a lot of artists
    it would be silly to host your own videos, though it can be done if that’s what you really want.. but check out Vimeo first, it just might be what you need

    It is perfect …thank you SO much for your time!
