We do not recommend to upload videos in your WordPress blog. Most of the WordPress blogs are hosted on a shared hosting platform and uploading videos would eat up more disk space and server resources. If the video gets huge traffic then your WordPress blog might get crashed. We suggest you to upload your videos on a third party trusted websites like YouTube, Google Video, blip.Tv etc. This would help you to save server resources and hosting expenses and you would get more visitors through these video sharing websites as well. It’s a dual benefit so don’t miss it.
