make them smaller. Please help!

A week ago, I posted a comment saying that the method you posted worked.
Well, fast forward a week, and video doesn’t work anymore. I tried
copy/pasting the URL, as well as the embed code. When I would update, and
view the page, only the link would show – no video. Is there something I’m
doing on my end, or has something changed? Anyone else have this

Can you make a video explaining how to host your own videos? I noticed on
your website, the videos are self hosted. I would like to learn how to do
that also. Thanks
