Whether to host it yourself or have it hosted somewhere else depends almost entirely upon how much bandwidth you have to burn with your hosting plan as well as how much you expect the video to be viewed.
In the same situation if I had bandwidth to burn, I'd host it on my own server. Easier, cleaner and 100% control. That's not to say I couldn't also upload it to YouTube or one of the other video platforms out there to bring over traffic and gain additional exposure.
If I didn't have bandwidth to burn I'd host it on YouTube, Amazon's S3 servers or one of those other major services that have redundancy. Being careful to choose one that didn't contain additional advertising of course. You can embed those right into any page and get the page to rank well by including some text about the video's subject matter.

No, it will show the page it is embedded on.

I don't remember Matt laying out exactly what he uses to make his videos, but I doubt it's a huge secret. Of course I don't exactly worship at the Altar of Matt, so he may have answered the question already and I've missed it.
Depending upon what you're doing with the video (eg is it true video of someone speaking, is it a capture of something on ones desktop, etc) there are different software kits to do it. The software can have a pretty large effect, not only in capturing what you're trying to capture but in how it compresses the final video it produces. For the software many, many folks have used one called Camtasia. I've used it for years for different projects. Like most quality video capture software it gives you several different formats to choose from when producing the final video.
Beyond the software, having a decent camera and/or microphone are important in producing good quality videos. And a computer that is hefty enough to handle the data input.

Can you elaborate on that a bit more?

I don't see why it would make a difference, but perhaps I'm missing something. Wouldn't be the first time!
