How do I place a video on my website?

Hi All,
What is the best way for me place a video on my website?
I don't want to use Youtube as the user is enticed away as (un)'related' videos are shown afterwards.
I don't think I can use Vimeo as my website is commercial and they have a non-commercial use clause.   Last time I checked they don't have a Commercial product...

How do I do it?
Is there a applet I load or something?

Having it work in all browsers without the user being prompted to install additional plugin is very important to me.
I need it to be a well resourced site so load times are low and ability for it to steam is a must.

Can anyone point me in the correct direction?

My website is based on Wordpress.

Kind Regards
Karl

Last time i checked you could uppload Videos to Wordpress. Atleas if you use the WebApplication.
"Upload videos directly to your blog
With the VideoPress upgrade you can upload HD quality videos straight to your blog. You'll also have fine-grained privacy control over who can see your videos."(From Wordpress.com)

Most common way of placing videos in HTML is by use of the EMBED tag:
 
<embed src="http://www.tizag.com/files/html/htmlexample.mpeg"
 autostart="false" />

Open in new window


You can use the OBJECT tag for flash media:
 
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="550" height="400" id="movie_name" align="middle">
    <param name="movie" value="movie_name.swf"/>
    <!--[if !IE]>-->
    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="movie_name.swf" width="550" height="400">
        <param name="movie" value="movie_name.swf"/>
    <!--<![endif]-->
        <a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflash">
            <img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif" alt="Get Adobe Flash player"/>
        </a>
    <!--[if !IE]>-->
    </object>
    <!--<![endif]-->
</object>

Open in new window


Or, if you can get your videos in FLV format, my favorite player is flowplayer.  Very easy, takes only three lines of code.  You can see my post on http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Web_Languages-Standards/HTML/Q_27274501.html

All my suggestions will, but it really depends on the player, not the code you set on your page.  That's why my preference is Flowplayer, because with Flowplayer you supply the player and it will play on any site that Flash can play on.
