We can do it with images but what if I want to illustrate something with a video. Can I place a video file in the body of my question somehow or only hyperlinking is the way?

No, embedding videos is not supported (except for possibly animated GIFs). Linking is your only option.

    this is supported on a site by site basis. It's only enabled on gaming right now as far as I can remember. May 5 '11 at 6:10
  • @Jeff Isn't that just for YouTube videos, not arbitrary anywhere videos, though?
