If you choose this option, keep in mind there is a 20MB per file limitation and you only have 100MB overall of file space on blogs.evergreen.edu. Uploading video to the blog server is only an option for host only a few very small videos. Anything larger will need to be hosted on a video service such a YouTube.

Another option is to use the Embed Video plugin. The advantage is that you can specify a movie poster as well as a download link for the files. See [[Embed Enhanced or Video Podcast - Wordpress]]. This will work for just video as well (doesn't need to be a podcast).
