How to Insert Videos into a Blog Post in SharePoint 2013

One of the great things about SharePoint is the ability to customize the nature of our communications with others.  This includes the ability to add rich media to our SharePoint blog posts.  For SharePoint 2013, Microsoft has provided a number of options for inserting video and media, including inserting media directly from your computer, from a SharePoint Asset Library, and from a Web page.  In this article, we’ll walk through the different methods for adding video to a SharePoint Blog Post.  Specifically, we’ll show you how to insert a video from your local computer, an embed code, a SharePoint asset library, and a video address.
