Apologies but this is rubbish. It was taken on a new HD camcorder and the vid is fab on my VDU. Obviously Blogger reprocesses it so it's not too big a file and teh quality has suffered badly. Does show the rel size wrt a Tufty tho'.

Hi John,
I'd recommend uploading to Youtube and keeping all your videos there. I've not noticed too much, if any, degradation in video quality after upload. Once there you can easily choose to link or embed the video via the share options that can be accessed from numerous locations on the site. I think that certain editing features are also available after upload, but I don't know much about them.
