Plone4ArtistsVideo product lets you upload a normal File to your Plone site. The file is auto-detected as a video file, metadata is auto-extracted and an appropriate view is rendered (depending on the file format).
Plone4ArtistsVideo also lets you embed a video that is hosted on a remote video sharing site. Simply choose add new "Link" from the add new item menu, paste in a link to a Youtube, Google Video, Blip.tv or Revver.com video, and the video will be added to your Plone site complete with all the metadata.
