    if yes, have a couple of questions to you:

    1-lets say i have 20 videos (they are my own content) in a category called tourism and each video got its description, lets say visitor will watch a video, after that video is completed, i want a the name of the next video appear with a countdown, for exemple after 5 seconds from completing the 1st video he will redirected to the next video if he is checking an old video, or the the previous video if he was watching the newest video, is that possible ? in my niche i only saw one site with that niche but he is not using wordpress.

    2- how do you monetize your videos, i was thinking about uploading video directly to my site without using thirdparty, like when someone likes the content and share it, he will automatically promote for the site, the service i'm selling, and bit of adsense, but i still finding this not enough.

    please enlighten me with ur experience!

    use youtube or it could get expensive to host your own vids, monetize with adsense via youtube. add share buttons to the page then they can share and the whole page including video will get shared.

    honestly moving to youtube will resolve tons of problems, but people may just check youtube and share it from there, i don't feel like youtube is enough, i want to promote the whole site.

    when they share the page of your site with the vid embedded it will promote your site. there is a chance they'll click through from the embedd video and watch it on youtube but it you make it so they can watch through your site then they'll stay put

    Add a link back to your site in the description on youtube also

    but i'm already using a premium theme (not planning to change the way my site looks like, it took me ages to do what i have done), and i'm only turning a section to video player area, thanks for trying.
