    You need a website video player such as Flowplayer or JWPlayer. Or, if you want an easier option, you can upload the video to YouTube and then embed it (via iframe) on your site.

    That's no longer the best solution, due to the limitations of certain browsers (for example, iPhones / iPads can not play swf at all).

    For the best cross-browser solution, you should render the video to HTML5 formats (mp4, webm, ogv), and then use an HTML5 video player with Flash backup. That will cover pretty much all of your website visitors.

    Another good solution is to upload all your videos to AMAZON S3, its good for backup, and you can link to your videos from anywhere by going to link, and they have an automatic web player for all the video formats. if you also OPT in for AMAZON Cloudfront, which will make streaming the video faster. and its practically FREE for both services, i have like 1 gb of videos on s3, i got charged only 10 cents a month , pretty good! I Think

    I'd suggest you use a video hosting site and then use an embed code.
    Reason: a good video hosting site will deliver the content that will work with iOS and other devices.
