B. to each user of the Service, a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free licence to access your Content through the Service, and to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display and perform such Content to the extent permitted
Does anyone serve their own video?I did for a while. I had a page with a half dozen MP4s. Went OK until a few forums hot-linked to them and kicked my bandwidth above limits which I was stuck paying for.
That's fine, but the OP asked about doing it yourself.
YouTube videos tend to rank well
Hotlinking is a big issue
we had to set up different formats (mp4, ogg, flash, webm, etc) for each video
