    Yeah, these days if you host your own videos, you could very well end up with a suddenly huge bandwidth bill at the end of some month. And if your ISP is not trustworthy and you have previously registered your domain with your ISP (you should definitely not do that) and if you don't pay the high bill, then they can and will take down your site and lock your domain until your cough up the overdue payment. I know that may sound very unfair, but I have seen this happen in the past on more than one occasion.

    So, yeah, just go with youtube or dailymotion etc. IMHO, one of the best video sharing sites these days is current.com. Very fast streaming, high quality video pixelation, no logos, and no ads. Check it out!

    Self-hosting will only bring you headaches and there isn't really any cons to posting your videos on YouTube and then embedding them into your website. I would also recommend that you watermark your videos before you post them to YouTube. If they are good and go viral this will be a good way of driving some traffic to your website.
