I am working on a website for my business and I have the need to store many training and informational videos on the site atleast 20-40 now and I am sure the number will grow quickly.  Using iweb, what is the best way to add these to my site?  is is possible to sort by category?
I was debating to use podcasts, but I will still need a way to organize and make the video size larger. Any ideas?

If you upload the videos to the site, you can reference each via a URL. You can categorise them any way you wish and reference them from within the web page.

Using iWeb, you can add the videos using the Media button, which will then give you a resizeable window for displaying the video on your site. You can also use the Quicktime button to adjust the settings for how it will appear on the site.

You also might consider uploading the videos to YouTube and referencing them from an embedded YouTube player.

Cheers,

Joel

Thanks. I have thought about that, but I lose alot of video quality when I do that. Ideally, I would have one tab for "videos" and then many other sub categories on that page.

I guess  there is no help here.  I keep getting emails that I have an open question, but no responses to what I need help with.

The quality you get will depend upon the quality of the quicktime video you provide. If you use an embedded YouTube link, then your video will be limited to the YouTube supported qualities. However, if you are providing your own quicktime files, then the video quality will be that that you provide. If you are hosting the video files, then you control the quality they are served at.
