Solution: upload video to your own web space and link to it.
A colleague of mine is an advanced user of Drupal. It's a system that can allow novices (such as myself) to build more complex web sites. However, it can also manage very simple ones. Drupal is a little daunting to novices. So a personal mentor or taking a class may be a better way to learn it than solo. You don't have to know html, but it certainly helps. Drupal is a more advanced 2.0 tool. Drupal's advanced purpose is for users to create their own interactive web sites.
