Posted:Ok here is an idea for all you guys. I have just been offered a great price for a huge upgrade to my site which will allow me to store several gigabytes of files with immense bandwidth. So instead of all the p2p rubbish and the rest of it. How about I store every video available on my website for you guys to upload. I can arrange several different ways for you to upload your files. I can give each video its own webpage that you are free to design for yourselves to put on my server. I can also provide you with stats with how many people have downloaded your videos etc..

I will of course only upload them with permission of each user and full credit will be given to each of those who want it.

Anyways let me know and I can arrange it. Plus for all those who already host their videos I am able to provide a mirror site for you as I can have remote file posting.

What do you think?

Posted:ok for all those who need me to host a video PM me and let me know and I will arrange it within a few days. Although the upgrade will not happen until the end of the month. So anyone needing very large files hosted should wait til then.

I am already hosting a few other files at the moment. There is a link to my website on my profile

Posted:Will we have to know you/be a known member to host things, or could anyone host things? I'm not exactly known on these forums but I'm in the process of making a fire video, and I'm in need of a host.

By the way, I think eventually you should ask for donations, you'll be doing the poi community a HUGE favor and the least we could do is chip in a few bucks to support his bandwith.

Ofcourse I mean crazy good.

Posted:Will we have FTP access, or have to send you videos beforehand? Bandwidth/File size restrictions? (Beyond the absolutely insane large files that no one could possibly host)

Posted:I am hoping to avoid ftp access until there is a more secure method. But if it is required then so be it.

As far as file size is concerned please compress your files to the absolute maximum of 50mb, if there are too many people giving me files this size that may have to be reduced. Bandwidth is not a concern at the moment as the bandwidth maximum is 50gb and I can increase that on the fly if necessary.

As far as donating is concerned, at the moment it is a free service but.. I will put a google ad banner on there to get some income, I will also consider having a private members pass for those who want to upload with a one off fee for as many uploads as they want.

However these are just ifs and maybes depending on the popularity of the site.

For now PM me and I will arrange a method for you to upload. However as mentioned before the upgrade is not until the end of the month so only the smaller vids will go up straight away.

Posted:This is a PM that I posted to someone asking me about the procedure and what the layout should be...

The current plan was to make sure all the pages which will be your video pages should adhere to the rest of the jez.i8.com layout including background colour, font size and type. Other than that the content is free for you to place pictures or whatever info you deem worthy for your videos. The plan was to still give some creative freedom for those wanting to upload to the site as long as it fits in with the rest of the webpage.

If I have to edit the pages you create, it will not be content based but purely aesthetical to fit in with what is already there.

Therefore what I need from each person uploading a video is

1. The video file
2. Html page for that file
3. Any pics which accompany the html so that the links work.

Be aware though that I may ask for changes to be made but all of those will be discussed with you first.

I do not want the process to be overly complicated and if you want me to build the html file then I will do but you will still have to email me what you want written.

Hope that makes things clearer!

Posted:u need content managment system on your site mate! i am waiting for one right now that will fit with the stuff i have been working on for the past 6 months.
jez i have a proposal for you but would need to talk in person and basically i think if you agreed and i think you would, your plans would fit tightly amongst mine and run combined. But also this would suit a lot of other people.


wooohooo new smilie

Posted:basically all you will have to do is upload your file to a folder via the website once jez has sorted all the bugs out in the site.

no designing of web pages or nothing.

though jez 50mb is a lot! i think 15max is suficient, think how many people in the long run are gonna use the feature nad how much webspace that is gonna take up!
