Hey guys,

I'm not a blogger -- thinking about it, but my previous experience with journals gives it a lifespan of inside a week -- but I was curious if there are any blogs out there that can host video clips.

I'm looking for a place to store a .avi file from a movie that I'd like to use in a class presentation, so I'd like the video to be able to play, obviously. Also, it'd be kind of neat if I could create a little blog for my presentation in lieu of a powerpoint.

Has anyone hosted video clips? Can it be done?

Hi Katie - I have never done it, but I have seen video files on blogs. The videos are usually hosted by YouTube or Putfiles, and they play right in the entry.
I suspect it's just a matter of '<a href=...etc' Here is a couple of examples, maybe viewing the source will be of some benefit.

Some explicit content Here! But I had a hard time finding examples on the fly: http://anime-video-blog.blogspot.com/

Hopefully this helps.

That's awesome, Flood. Thanks so much. Now I'm going to have to figure out if I'm actually computer-proficient enough to actually pull this off... ;)

Hi Katiemac! Nice to see new faces here - You can also try your question in the techie thread - there are some really helpful peeps there, too.

Flood, thanks for doing the research.
