If you plan on hosting the videos then be prepared for huge bandwidth increases, expecially if you get alot of visitors. A website with only a thousand visitors a day will use up your server resources and bandwith quickly. Be sure to optimize the videos to keep the file size as low as possible. Convert the video in MP4 is the format to keep the file size little and retain a quality view.
One way we found to be cost effective is hosting the videos at Amazon S3 and inlaying them on your site. The bandwidth costs are very inexpensive and the network is awesome at Amazon.
For high scale video hosting, Voxel out of New York is one I recommend to my corp clients.
