Question Embed video without using YouTube?

I have videos (some mpegs, and various other formats) uploaded to my website server and I would like to embed them in my webpage without having to use an external host like YouTube. Any ideas as to how to go about doing this efficiently?

Best bet is to get some type of flash video player for your site (you'll most likely need to convert the videos into .flv format).

Alternatively, you can look up in w3schools how to use the <object> and <embed> tags. I would not recommend this practice however because all browsers and users and operating systems have different codecs / implementations for embedding video in a web-page and it may not appear as expected. A flash wrapper is the only sure-fire way to give the user play, pause, seek, volume, etc... Plus using a flash player you can track how many times a video was watched, etc...

**EDIT: @CoolRabbit, I am also from Ohio. Whereabouts are you located?
