optimise should be like quicktime, simple settings or custom if you
want and know what you're doing.
it should automatically extract a poster frame and make that clickable
to load the video.
both should be uploaded to your nominated server account.
posting should include appropriate metadata, including date, data size,
director/author.
metadata including clickable urls should be an option and presented
into the movie as text tracks.

but the above is imovie, why reinvent the wheel? a plugin for imovie
that did the poster movie and posted to a blog would do it.
