These days when most website designers feature videos on their sites, what they would do is first upload the clip onto YouTube and then embed it into their own webpage.  This is a cool option, but recently I decided to take a different route for a number of reasons.  For instance YouTube has the tendency to automatically play a really-short video twice (i.e. double its length by looping it), which I find really annoying.  So as an alternative, I wanted to try a technique which I haven't used in a long time - uploading a video onto my own web-hosting plan and then embedding it into a webpage using normal HTML code.
