Better, Prettier and Simpler Video Embed
The Internet Archive is a storage platform and part of the WayBack Machine. It houses a lot of content from back when content uploaders and viewers were very few in number.
Uploads to The Internet Archive are pretty fast, as is the post processing of videos. Also every video you upload will be automatically reencoded into other formats (ogg/vorbis for instance), so you can use more than one "source" tag to maximize compatibility.
To embed the video, you can upload it to The Internet Archive then "call" the video using the HTML5 video tag, like this:
<video class="video" controls="controls" preload poster="/img/your_poster.jpg"> <source src="https://archive.org/download/yourvideo.mp4" type="video/mp4"> <source src="https://archive.org/download/yourvideo.ogv" type="video/ogg"> No HTML5 support. Update your browser! </video>

Embed videos will show on your page free of any tags, annoying overlays or ads. Like this:

Videos about "10 things I hate about cold popcorn" can be deleted without any warning. And they should, right?!!
