can short videos be uploaded, like photos, from a home machine directly?

I'm guessing the answer is no; only because of the size. It's limited even with photos and even the smallest video files are much larger than the largest photos (usually).

Sorry, no. But you can upload to Youtube pretty easily. And when you upload a video to YT, you have the option of having it listed publicly, listing it privately (which I believe requires a password), or having it unlisted (accessible to anyone, just not in the public directory).

ok........It's for a theme camp person, and, I know, or am pretty sure, youtube would not allow it....ergo, hoping to do it direct. the vids are of the Burn, but, with nudity and such, one might imagine it NSFW.

They don't check them unless they are reported, and if they aren't published and have no key words to have them come up in a search, I doubt they'd ever be discovered.

If it's for a specific person, perhaps a site like dropbox or yousendit would work?

Second the unlisted Youtube video, especially if the audience is going to be small.

The main problem with uploading videos rather than doing a youtube embed, is the simple mechanics of needing a player to play them. When you upload a video to youtube, it does it's own version of encoding and embedding it in it's own flash player. Just simply uploading the file won't do it.. you have to have some type of player/plugin to play it.

I suppose actually that it could be done.. but then also imagine the sheer server space that it would take up.

+1 for just youtube embedding it. Make it a private video and let 'er rip.
