Video Hosting for WordPress Sites

Host video effortlessly and deliver it at high speeds to your viewers.

Looking for a better way to share video content?

Video is one of the most engaging forms of content that you can include on your website. In fact, Jetpack has been supporting seamlessly embedding video content from top services for a long time.

That said, hosting your videos on YouTube, DailyMotion, or directly on your own server has some shortcomings:

  • If you host it yourself, you may need to pay more for a better hosting plan and bandwidth.
  • Hosting on a third-party service like YouTube means that your viewers need to contend with third-party adverts (that you get no revenue from). Viewers can easily get distracted on YouTube and navigate away from your content.
  • Alternatively, hosting on an ad-free platform inevitably means that you need to pay more for the service.

Frequently Answered Questions

Answers to common questions we get asked. For advanced settings and trouble-shooting read our detailed support document.

How do I purchase video hosting?

Unlimited video hosting is included in Jetpack Security and Jetpack Complete plans. We’re building the ability to purchase video hosting by itself, so check back soon for that.

Is there a storage limit?

Jetpack includes unlimited video hosting. Please note that there is a 2TB soft-limit on storage to ensure legitimate use. If this limit is reached, please reach out to Jetpack support and we can increase it for you.

Is there a file size limit?

Video hosting works well for files that are 1GB and lower. It may work for files between 1GB and 2GB, but the larger the file, the greater chance for the process to fail. Most networks will time out before you’re able to upload a file that’s larger than 1.4 GB. We cannot support any files that are larger than 2 GB. Videos uploaded that are over three hours will be converted to standard resolution but won’t be available in any higher resolution formats.
