These are very reasonable questions that deserve well thought out answers. With a little research you will be able to make an educated decision that is right for you.
First it is important to understand why you should video host.

The answer to all of these questions: YES! Video hosting and video blogging ensures that your customer has a lean-in experience versus a lean-back one. Meaning they are engaged and involved with the information you are sharing.
Video hosting allows you to upload video to a host’s website and link to it on your site. That means your content is stored online in a way that you can access very easily. Since the host is storing the content on their server – you will have faster loading rates on your page. Host sites also provide code so that you can easily grab and paste the code into the application you are looking to fill. Sometimes these hosting sites are called video sharing sites.
There are free hosting sites like Youtube, Veeple, Vidilife, and Squidoo. Each is very different. The question we posed – to host or not to video host – the answer is yes. Please do video host! It is too easy of a solution to pass up. There are many benefits to video hosting, video blogging, etc. The hosting sites have taken all of the struggle and inconvenience out of the video hosting process for you. All you have to do is sign up for the service you need to serve your customers best.
Video hosting sites really have taken the hassle out of this process. Feel free to explore this option – you will not be sorry you did.
