For the longest time I was stuck at a crossroads. Any video I created would go up on my facebook page but the privacy settings of facebook would prevent me from embedding them in my WordPress blog. I was able to embed videos from flickr but they limit their videos to 90 seconds in length.
I’ve always disliked the aesthetics of youtube and was all ready to sign up for Vimeo but then I read that I had to pay to upload multiple HD videos AND pay for every play of an embedded HD Video. Fuck that noise! I broke down and finally signed up for a youtube account. You can find me at http://www.youtube.com/user/rioyanez. I’m finally able to share some of my videos that run longer than 90 seconds like this one of artist Melanie Cervantes sharing her thoughts on Post-Chicano art. Check it out!

Couldn’t you upload the video (quicktime format) to your server, copy and paste that the link from your server to your website? This shouldn’t be too hard.
I too have succumb to YouTube. But it does spread your work out to folks who wouldn’t normally get it.
Oh, I really love the interview with Melanie. She’s awesome!
I didn’t realize there was such YouTube hate.
I think it’s mostly an aesthetic issue.
