How can I host a video on Salesforce.com?

How can I host a video on Salesforce.com?

Hi Venkatesh, 


The cloud data storage is cost consuming and not recommended to host videos. 

Every Salesforce.com org comes with a limited amount of Space for data storage, which however can be increased at extra cost but is not a right solution for storing Videos in Salesforce. 

Rather than that there are couple of options where you can host those videos directly in Youtube.com and add / Mashup / embed into Salesforce which is the best practice and solution.
