With video, there are so menu thing that you can explain to your visitors. You can upload your videos on Youtube, Vimeo, depending on your preference and how long your video is.

Once you create an account, upload a video to Youtube or Vimeo sites, let’s see how to embed it into your WordPress page or post
WordPress now supports oEmbed to make embedding videos into your blog post even easier. oEmbed is a format which allows URLs to point to embedded content automatically. It will take a standard link, extract media from it, and embed it on a webpage. This has been integrated into WordPress fully for several versions.
All you need is to copy the video link URL from the browser, place its URL into the content area. Switch to “Text” tab before pasting the Youtube URL.
Your post editor will render a preview of the video. That way, you can see what it looks like without having to preview the post.
Let me know if you have any questions.
