I have alot of home videos I want to put on my website, and it seems that the easiest way to do it would be to embed it onto my website using HTML script. Problem is, I have no clue how to convert in into HTML script. Could someone please tell me how?

mostly,
embedded media players are like the <img> tag
they take a number of parameters, size, filename, filetype, a href to the codec where applicable.
the exact process, depends on the filetype of the video
I use wmv on my home vids, the format my camera takes the video html to display asf/wmv looks like this

<A href="http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/download/"><IMG ALT="Get Windows Media Player" SRC="http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/images/logos/getwm/mp11_88x31_static.gif" WIDTH="88" HEIGHT="31" BORDER="0"></A><br>

Again the code depends on your file type,
google for "embed ".$myfiletype." streaming media";

Why not upload to something like Vimeo ac just embed the code that it spits out? Use Vimeo's bandwidth!
