Videos on your website

Videos can add a lot to your website, a video says more than a picture. However, video files are often large so the space in your hosting can quickly run out.

Fortunately, there are several ways to achieve this on your website. In this blog post we will go through how you can best place videos on your website.

What can I use videos for?

Many people wonder what exactly they can use videos for on their website. This is a question that actually has no correct answer as it depends entirely on yourself.

You can use a video on your website to demonstrate something, think of one of your products. But you can also use it to promote something or even as an instruction for your product.

In an instruction it is especially useful to use videos, because this saves your visitors time. It is now a lot easier to watch a video of a few minutes instead of reading a whole article.

External hosting

A technique that a lot of people use is to load the video somewhere else. Generally this is done via YouTube, this is also called embedding.

This is mainly due to the fact that YouTube is the easiest way to do this. You only have to click on share and then on embed, here you will see HTML code.

Copy this piece of code and place it on your webhosting. When you have implemented the HTML code into your website you will see the video on your website.

Of course, at the end of a YouTube video you will always see recommended videos. In general, this is not desired, imagine that there are videos from competitors on your website.

Fortunately, you can do something against this, you can set it so that you only get videos from your own channel recommended. You can do this by adding a small piece of code to the embed link, this way you can send people to other videos of your own.

Pros and cons

There are of course advantages and disadvantages to embedding your videos, the biggest advantage is probably the space. Video files are often large and take up a lot of space on your space, if you host this externally it saves a lot of space.

A disadvantage of this is that it is almost impossible to check who exactly watched your videos. This makes it difficult for you to analyze what kind of people watch your videos.

If you have any further questions on this subject you can always check to see if there is a chat employee on the chat. If there is no one on the chat, you can send a ticket to the helpdesk. Contact via Facebook or Twitter is also possible.
