YouTube is perhaps the world’s best known and most popular video sharing platform, which is owned by Google.
A Bandwidth Saver
We often recommend to use services like YouTube to host embedded video in order to save bandwidth costs, and also because the platform may encourage additional views outside of your website.
YouTube is free – as in beer – to post to and playback from.
Native support in WordPress
If you are a WordPress publisher, YouTube videos are supported through native embeds, which means you may paste in a YouTube URL and this video will be embedded automatically, saving you much time, as well as bandwidth.
