a ghost post from a file instead of a link? i.e. upload myvideo.mp4 and have it be embeded in the post like a youtube video would be?

Unfortunately hosting audio and video is expensive, difficult, and full of problems. The effort is not worth the reward to build this into Ghost or support it. Using external services who specialise in audio/video hosting is far and away the best solution.

The original thread is here:

Hosted audio and video, embedded in posts Ideas

The ability to add audio and video clips to posts would be a welcome addition. Video can already be added by embedding a YouTube or Vimeo video, but this comes with some restrictions such as being bound by the external provider’s terms of service. It also creates a dependency on centralised social media platforms.

I write these "Tech Tips" for personal documentation. Some you might find too trivial, some too hard. For some you'll find better sources elsewhere, sometimes mine are too difficult. I'm happy to make them easier and more comprehensive for fellow founders. Because I know that nothing is too obvious and someone most likely is looking to solve a similar problem.
