I am pleased I was able to do a bit of cleanup on my website: I deleted some 50 videos (that had been downloaded from my computer) and replaced them with videos I had uploaded to YouTube. In the process I was able to save just over 5 GB (5000 MB).
When you embed a video from YouTube, the video plays from YouTube servers and it won’t take up your storage or bandwidth. The data transfer won’t take up your hosting account bandwidth.
When you upload a video to WordPress, you are taking the video file itself and uploading it to your own web hosting account.
What to do?
download a video to your computer
upload the video to YouTube and then
embed the video from YouTube to your website.
In this video I will show you how to delete uploaded videos to your website and how to embed a video from YouTube.
