Squarespace has not been designed to host video files directly. You can host your videos on YouTube (or Vimeo) without them showing on these services. If using YouTube, set the video to ‘unlisted’ when uploading it. You can then embed it using a Video Block, but it won’t appear when searched on YouTube.

This might be the workaround I've been looking for. I want to showcase videos I've created, but they all contain copyrighted music, which i bought legally of course from iTunes. Can anyone tell me if this "unlisted" mode on YouTube uploads will ignore copyright issues on music content after uploading the video?
