An easy way to embed videos without Youtube

Here's a little known trick for video sharing using Google Drive. If you have a video you want to share but don't particularly want to share it on Youtube, you can upload to Google Drive and then embed wherever you like.

Here are the steps:

  • Go to Google Drive and hit the upload button (the one with the arrow pointing up next to create)

  • Find the video you want to upload and upload it. Choose the option to convert to Google format (I haven't checked if it works if you don't do that).

  • Open the video with Google Drive viewer

  • Click on 'file' and then 'Embed this video'. If you have set the share settings to public then you can embed it anywhere and people can see it.

For those of you who are wondering, what the video is, it is me sparring when I used to do boxing. I'm not so fit these days.....
