In order to upgrade our email newsletter & blog, we would like to include a video. But we are pretty clueless as to the whole process.
1) We have a Flip Ultra HD video cam that we will be using for 30 second "commercials". Other than the editor that comes with the Flip, is there an easy-to-use video editor out there that is either free or available at a minimum cost? (Once upon a time there was a pinned thread about free programs but I don't seem to be able to find it anywhere since the Board was re-organized.)
2) Can the video be imbedded in an emailed newsletter that is self contained? Or does it have to be hosted someplace? Unfortunately, the people that host our website say they don't have enough server power to host videos for us. So what is our alternative? YouTube is NOT a good option for us as a business, because it shows "related" videos including what would probably be our competitors. Also we don't need people to be able to comment on the video, just watch it.
3) If the video has to be hosted someplace, where can we go that is cost effective?
Thanks in advance for all your help,
