Add streaming videos with YouTube
It is easy to add video files in the Text and Image editor on any page of your site . However, the videos added this way, will not stream - and your site visitors may need to wait until the whole video loads before viewing.
Video streaming, on the other hand, allows you to watch a video while it is being delivered by the video provider. To add streaming videos to your site you may host your videos with Youtube, and then integrate those videos on your web page using the HTML Snippet.
