I love the idea of using a service that is so tightly integrated with WordPress, though I don't really see the point of using VideoPress on a Self-Hosted website. If a person has the hardware, to host their own website, the could host their own videos, too.
I do see how publishing videos on both the self-hosted account and the WordPress.com account though, would help with visibility. Many thousands of people visit WordPress.com each day and with that kind of traffic, it is a great idea to have the videos there as well.
My biggest hang-up is branding. If VideoPress was a free service, I could understand the branding... BUT IT IS NOT A FREE SERVICE. If I'm going to pay for a way to publish my videos, I'm definitely not going to pay for a service where the branding can't be removed.
If I have to pay for VideoPress usage, then I do not want to see VideoPress anywhere, except maybe the WordPress Admin Area.
So, my question is:
Is there a way to turn off the VideoPress Logo, to keep it from displaying with my videos?
