TaIn the Gears movie I had challenged groups to film and explanation of a gear train that would need to extra text, after the groups had made their models we quickly, as a class, added the very short fragments together with QuickTime Pro and posted them to the blog.

 

QT embed code: http://www.sandaigprimary.co.uk/weemovies/

More recently I've experimented with edublogs.tv which allows you to upload video and provides embed codes for example Primary 2 Sandaig Tour

I've also tested vimeo and blip.tv both produce nice flash players. You can see examples on my Embed Tests page. I am leaning towards blip as a solution as you can upload m4v files and blip will give you an iTunes friendly rss feed that will play video on an iPod, quick video podcasting.
