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:50mb allows people to upload more than one video each. I will change this if required later. Pk is right you do not need any html to upload files you just follow the very simple to use upload feature. But as PK says there are a few bugs to iron out but hopefully they will be sorted out this week.

Posted:I have moved server with loads more bandwidth and space. The site is now working although vids have to be emailed to me at email@poiintheparkex.net

emails should contain any comments like author, music by and any other details like performers etc... Then attach your vid and send it to me and I will put it up on the website.

If you have the video stored elsewhere then you can do it yourself on the website by going to downloads and submitting the info yourself.

Anyway the website is now up Poi in the park EX

Have fun

Posted:Hey all this talk of this being a good idea and nothing comes to fruition.

Oh well I have had one download submitted thus far. I hope all you guys who have videos submit a link and that way it should be easier to manage all these videos.

My site also have a place where each of the videos gets reviewed by the public.

There is also a count next to each download so you can see how many times each vid has been downloaded and also which is the most popular smile

Posted:I will upload the file to my server by FTP. But I cannot give out access as I do not want to compromise the security on my site. So if you wish to send me a file you can email me the file as mentioned above. Or you can write it to CD and snail mail it to me, but if you are really desperate and cannot do any of the above then I may give you instructions on how to FTP and where to put it.

That will only be done as a last resort.

If you already have the file stored on the net then you can either link to the file in my downloads section or I can upload the file to my server.

This applies to all of those who want their videos to be on my database. I know that their are an awful lot of you who have spinning videos and if you want to increase the amount of peeps who download your video you would not go far wrong from adding yourself to the database on my site as I do get a lot of traffic who download these videos. Even if the videos were made ages ago please feel free to add them.

Posted:Yea.. I think I'm gonna have to go with the 3rd option. I have a limit on how big an attachment can be on my email, and unless you can figure out how to compress an 8mb .avi file into a 1.5mb file.. then I think I'm gonna have to go the self-ftp route. And since I'm in the US, and you're in England.. I think snailmail woudn't work the way I would like it to. PM me with your ideas..

Thanks, Matt.

Posted:The only problem with that is videos are high bandwidth and on a free site you are likely to have your site closed. I have 100GB of bandwidth on my site so I have no problem hosting video files. I will arrange for Hexus to FTP just this once and I will set-up a temporary FTP account for him. Although if you did choose to get a free host I could pick up the file there and save it onto my server.
