I want to create a hip hop media site that is based primarily on videos.
The two sites that I will be competing with are [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view]
As you can see there is somewhat of a basic format for this kind of site that I don't want to break away from. I do want to make some subtle changes to my site so that it stands out from the others and does not appear to be an exact clone but other than that I want things to be pretty much the same as the others since most of my targeted demographic seems to have become accustomed to this format.
As you can see the site will not require many of the features that other video sharing sites have such as user profiles, user accounts, or user uploading.
Some of the features I will require is a custom logo, favicon, video skin, water mark, some way to easily watermark all videos that are uploaded, a good search engine for the site, easy to edit ad placement, facebook and twitter integration, and a mobile friendly version of the site.
There may be some other features that are needed at some point but for now that covers most of it. I am not exactly sure how to go about hosting the videos either and what would be the easiest way to do this so a good knowledge of networking and server environments is also needed.
I have a pretty good idea of how I want everything to look already so the layout for the site should be fairly easy as well.
