I've been looking for the best way to put video into this blog. I was hoping for some sort of Flash capture built-into Wordpress that would let me host the videos here (as I've mentioned before I like the idea of keeping all my content locally just in case), but all the plug-ins I can find host somewhere else. With that the case it seems easiest to use iMovie to record the video then use it post it directly to YouTube. I guess Google will be around as long as I will anyway. Then I can embed the video here. That's what I did below.
It takes a while for YouTube to digest the video, but at least I get the embed code right away. Of course I need something to say, too, but maybe as I get used to the idea of video blogging I'll find my voice.
