Uploading Your Videos
IMAGES AND LIBNK <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Finally, you need to make sure your videos are uploaded somewhere for your buyers to download them from. One option is to use Amazon S3 (http://aws.amazon.com/s3) http://aws.amazon.com/s3) to host them, another is to put them on YouTube as unlisted so that only users with the link you send can access them. This latter choice can irritate some people though as they’ll be all too aware that they could have gotten them for free had they just found the right link…
Another option is to host your videos yourself on your own hosting account. While this is a good option, bear in mind that videos are very large files and so can put a strain on your servers.
There’s a video service called WISTIA
(www.wistia.com) which basically allows you to upload your videos and use their built-in video player.
It’s as simple as copying and pasting the code onto your website.
If you’re just starting out and on a budget, use YouTube as it won’t cost you a single thing. You can adjust the embed code to modify elements such as disabling the video title and not show related videos. Here’s how to do it:
Select the video you want to embed and play it as normally. Below the video you’ll find a ‘Embed’ option.
Click the SHOW MORE option to bring down more options. You’ll then be shown extra options.
