Iím new to the video thing, and was wondering how do I put video onto my website so that viewers can look at my demo reels.
I have a video production website that I am using to promote my business.
It seems that having the ability to stream video from your site is a plus.
Iím used dream weaver to build the site.
Thank for any help on this mater.
There are plenty of top quality (even free) Flash video playing widgets available and they are often quite easy to implement. They'll include the same preloaders/buffering, playback controls, etc... that YouTube offers. Try searching for 'flash video player' or something similar.
If you don't have no flash skills you should use any of the streaming video websites like youtube, metacafe, Google Video,... and so.
You should read which one offers you the best free deal. Search about their differences. I'm a regular user of youtube which has the information well organized.
Using youtube it allows you to embed your uploaded movie to your HTML file notice to the Embed field under the movie.
To upload it you must convert your movie to MPG 320x240 not more than 100Mb and upload it to your account.
All the best.

If you have access to Flash it is very simple to encode your own flv files (which is basically what youtube is anyway). In flash, create a new document and then 'import' > 'video' . This will bring up a dialogue which allows you to control the quality and data-rate (etc.). If you hit 'publish' it will produce a page of html with the flash object already embedded in it, and you can also control the output setting to alter how large the published file is. Since this is your demo real, it will also remove the annoying issue of having Youtube watermarks all over your video.
