Where to Find Embeddable Health Information Videos

There are a good number of sources for online health information videos, but I tend to take special note of those sites that will allow me to embed videos on any Web page I want.

  1. Thanks David. I tested all out on the hospital lib. computers and I could view the videos from all the sites. My hospital blocks most streaming media. Only health realted things are allowed to be viewed. Sometimes their blocking software sometimes still blocks health/medical videos.
