How would I put a video on my website from my computer instead of uploading it to Youtube and embedding it? I don't want to download Adobe Flash professional or anything like that. What would be a good HD video website if I can't do it from my computer?

You could convert it to FLV (e.g. using a FLV converter) and embed it (using <option>). You could also just directly embed it as it is, but don't expect maximum compatibility that way.

I was trying to do something similar, I used the windows media player object and added the video as a playlist. Converting the video to a streaming format will make the video load faster. If I remember correctly its .avi (that could be wrong)

Just upload the file to your server where ever you wish to put it. You can then use a variety of media embed styles for instance Windows, Real, etc.

<!-- begin embedded WindowsMedia file... -->      <table border='0' cellpadding='0' align="left">      <tr><td>      <OBJECT id='mediaPlayer' width="320" height="285"       classid='CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95'       codebase='http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701'      standby='Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components...' type='application/x-oleobject'>      <param name='fileName' value="http://servername/path/to/media.file">      <param name='animationatStart' value='true'>      <param name='transparentatStart' value='true'>      <param name='autoStart' value="true">      <param name='showControls' value="true">      <param name='loop' value="true">      <EMBED type='application/x-mplayer2'        pluginspage='http://microsoft.com/windows/mediaplayer/en/download/'        id='mediaPlayer' name='mediaPlayer' displaysize='4' autosize='-1'         bgcolor='darkblue' showcontrols="true" showtracker='-1'         showdisplay='0' showstatusbar='-1' videoborder3d='-1' width="320" height="285"        src="http://servername/path/to/media.file" autostart="true" designtimesp='5311' loop="true">      </EMBED>      </OBJECT>      </td></tr>      <!-- ...end embedded WindowsMedia file -->    <!-- begin link to launch external media player... -->        <tr><td align='center'>        <a href="http://servername/path/to/media.file" style='font-size: 85%;' target='_blank'>Launch in external player</a>        <!-- ...end link to launch external media player... -->        </td></tr>      </table> 

.avi is a hefty file type which doesn't scale very well from small to large, but it's not a bad file type and it'll serve you well with compatability, however, it is again hefty. You'll use up a heck of a lot of bandwidth, so I suggest converting. This can be done in a program called Avid media Composer or something similar, I recommend at the minimum WMA for streaming. ...
