How to Insert a video into your WP blog

This is part 8 of a WordPress How-to video series.

Not so long ago, inserting a video into your WordPress based site was a real challenge, however, now with the latest version of WP and the many easy-to-use plugins available this has become so easy and straight-forward.

A lot of scenarios are available for such a thing but I would greatly recommend uploading your video to a video-sharing site like YouTube or Vimeo, or similar the then including the link into your site.
