I need a site that will allow people to upload videos in various formats (once they have picked a username and pw). The videos will then be automatically encoded and made available to anyone visiting the site on a page or series of pages (one for each of several categories that the uploader will specify) that will allow the videos to be viewed in a high quality streaming format. It is very important that the playback on the site be very-high quality, like the videos shown on [url removed, login to view], for example. We will supply the graphic design of the pages. We will need administrative ability to delete/recategorize videos and block selected users from uploading. We will also want to have tools for site visitors toe-mail to a friend, rate the video, etc.
This is admittedly a bit vague, but we're hoping programmers who work in this area will ï¿½getï¿½ what we're looking for. There are probably sites like it out there we could reference to give a clearer picture. (Maybe a bit like Flurl.com. or [url removed, login to view]).
Our budget is undecided, but we are definitely looking for something affordable.
