You can sign up and make use of the free file hosting and embed your videos using HTML5 tag / code to your blog. Replace link with individual public / shared links from the providers you signed up.
The second option requires at least a basic understanding of how HTML embed codes work. It’s not complicated, so don’t be scared off, but it’s also not copy and pasting an embed code from YouTube. You’re essentially creating your own embed code.
You start with the following HTML5 code as a template:
<video width="320" height="240" controls="controls">
<source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4" />
Now, follow the steps above on getting the link to the video. Then, where you see “movie.mp4,” you’ll want to replace this with that link. For example:
Next, you’ll want to adjust your width & height. You’ll want to use dimensions that best fit within your site. I use this handy little chart to help me figure out the best size to ensure maximum size compatibility.
When you’re all done, your embed code should look something like this:
<video width="512" height="288" controls="controls">
<source src="https://www.dropbox.com/s/os60r63ogwfl408/your_video_here.mp4" type="video/mp4" />
Now just post this code on your site and you’re good to go. If you wanted to play around with some different features for the embed player, here is a great resource for the different coding options.
