Are there additional costs w/ video? Like hosting fees?
This question depends on what your goal is with video sharing. If you are trying to distribute and share your video among many sites, use free video sharing sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, Metacafe, or whichever you choose. But, be careful when using these sites. It is unprofessional to link a YouTube video to your website. It is reasonable for blog material, but not for your website. Save yourself the …
…embarrassment and do not link a YouTube video to your site EVER. Your website should have web videos embedded that are of good quality and convey a message. If you are a low traffic website, you can host your videos on your own web server. Since there is not a whole lot of traffic going your way, there will not be any mishaps. If you are looking to increase traffic to your site, use a hosting platform. We recommend Brightcove. It ranges from $30 to $40 per month and achieves what you want and more. With Brightcove, you have control over the player with a point and click format. Knowledge of programming is not needed with Brightcove which makes it that much better. The video will never be down on Brightcove. To answer the question, there are additional fees for hosting platforms, but it is a reasonable price and will generate traffic.
