Interested in adding or setting up a video blog with WordPress? Michael Pollock of Solostream has written “Set up a Video Blog (or How to Add Flash Video to Your WordPress Site)” as a guide to help you.
Maybe you have a business site and want to provide some video for customers and/or potential customers. For example, when I designed a site for Hi-Way Campers, an RV dealer, I included video walk-through tours of some of the RVs for folks who started their RV shopping online (see an example here). Website video would also be great for restaurants, conference facilities, hotels, resorts, real estate brokers or anyone with a product people need to see.
Whatever your reason for wanting to add video to your site, it’s pretty easy with WordPress and a couple of other tools. Before anyone else mentions it, let me say at the outset that sites like YouTube, Vimeo, Google Video and the like also make it pretty easy to upload and share video. If, however, you’re a tad paranoid like me and you’d rather not rely on another service (who may insert ads into your video at some point) to help you share your video with the world, this tutorial is for you.
The instructions look fairly simple, a few WordPress Plugins and tools and you are off making your own home movies or whatever.
