I was wondering what the best way to take your own videos and display them on your website was.

Do you have a website already? Did you write it in HTML yourself? If you wrote it yourself and feel your visitors will be be using browsers that support HTML 5. I think this should be helpful:

One easy way you can embed video into your site is to use a player like JW Player which you can download and embed in your site. I highly recommend it and it comes with a ton of scriptable features that can help you control how you present the video (like Javascript hooks). It will also handle the whole HTML5/Flash debacle by allowing you to fallback to flash if the user is not able to use HTML5 in their browser.

For the most cross browser experience (and to work on things like iPad/iPhone), I would suggest you run mp4 videos through this player.

The quality and options on this player are great. I am not trying to push some player, but it is just that I have used this player a lot myself and it has done a great job for showing video. Tie it up to jQuery and you have tons of ability to create dynamic players.

Hope this helps. :)
