Ok. I have three websites on a web server A.
I have a video/movie file filename.flv
Out there there is YouTube
Do I upload the video to YouTube and then get code to embed in my webpages?
Is it that easy?
Anything important I should know about?

It's that easy. There are numerous settings in YouTube that you may wish to review when you are uploading the video, but beyond that, it's fairly simple.

I am looking into it more now..
I have :
filenameHQ.mp4 152,950 kb
filenameLQ.mp4 33,000 kb
filename.flv 30,900 kb
Does it matter which one I use?
Perhaps the first will be higher quality, but people will need to download much more data to see the video.
Wish I knew the filesize of videos I have clicked on to guage what is an acceptable download time.

Anyhow ... no worries ... You tube makes things pretty easy .. all done for the time being.

If you're uploading to youtube they will re-encode it unless it meets their specs. The best thing to do is to upload the highest quality video you have.

The filesize doesn't really matter becsue that is determined by length*bitrate, what matters is the bitrate. I believe youtube uses about 250kbps for regular uploads.
FYI you can serve this from your own server. For .flv all you need is a flash player.
