  • Looking to Host a Streaming Site

    So a couple friends and myself want to set up a new site for streaming anime shows, I already have a fairly successful site with almost 2000 members so I do have some experience, I'm just looking for some opinions.

    I need a host that can provide large amounts of web space, bandwidth, and nice speeds, I want to my videos to buffer fairly fairly quickly. And of course it needs to have php, mySQL and all that other fun stuff installed. :P

    Any suggestions would be great.

    I suggest streaming it with Do you know what script you'll be using? Will the visitors have the ability to upload videos like you youtube?

      I would highly recommend you a Dedicated Server for streaming video website. Have you done any calculation for space and bandwidth you will require? There wont be any problems with versions of PHP and MySQL you'll require.

        Are you just embedding the videos on to your site? or are you actually hosting them and streaming them?

          I dont really want, a dedicated server right away, I don't want to spend the money unless the site actually kicks off. I was planning on starting with shared hosting.

          I've been looking into some scripts and software, but I'm not quite sure what I would use, would it be just a generic CMS system, or are there actually scripts out there, dedicated to hosting/streaming videos.

          And no I don't plan allowing guests to upload. At least not yet anyway.
