Easily upload and embed videos on WordPress
According to WordPress, this is “quite possible the easiest way to upload beautiful videos to your blog.” After uploading a video, you can easily embed them within your posts and pages.
This Jetpack option isn’t free, however; you must have a paid VideoPress subscription (at the current price of $60/year) in order to use it in WordPress. But the perks to using VideoPress as opposed to uploading your video to YouTube or another such spot, and then embeding it within your blog? VideoPress gives you seven:
- Ad-free videos
- Unlimited video length as long as your videos less than 1GB in size
- Unlimited bandwidth when streaming
- The ability to upload and share your videos directly from your iPad or iPhone with the WordPress app
- Share/embed these videos all over the Internet
- Your videos mimic your blog’s privacy settings
- Formats supported includes: MP4, QuickTime, Windows Media, Audio Video Interleave, and more
