I put my video on Youtube, figuring that it would be more likely to be viewed (and thus the link to my site seen), and would be more likely to rank for a couple of phrases. It's getting views, and it does rank well for those phrases.
However, it's not doing my site any good, really. I have the better-quality, unmodified video on my site, and it gets a few dozen views a day.
All in all, the time spent on that video probably would have been better spent getting old-fashioned links.
If I'm going to do another video, it will have to be something unique enough and of sufficient interest to justify the time and effort.
