Hi,

I have a video in youtube and I am directing users from my website to youtube to watch the video. Some people don't direct users to youtube and let users to watch the video while in their sites. Does this put extra work weight on my site, hosting, bandwidth etc? Which one is better?

Thanks

you have to think about the bandwith, the problem with youtube is ads, and user diversion to youtube.

It depends on the type of video. It could be a bandwith issue.

With your own content that isn't implicated by copyright restrictions, you can embed the youtube video on your site. That way you have no bandwidth issues, just the youtube adverts which pop up.
