    Exactly. I was rather perplexed about that earlier comment.

      I don't think it would be the ideal thing to do it in if you really want some serious scaling. Perhaps I'm wrong.

        Hosting videos on your own forum is easy using jwplayer.

          PHP is pretty scalable when something is built properly with it (any bad developer can make *anything* not scale well on any platform).

          If you were going to build a video streaming application, what platform would you use (clearly you would not use PHP)?

            Facebook seems to do ok with it. The bottleneck with video is the bandwidth and any resources needed processing the file. It doesn't have anything to do with a language's scalability.

            EDIT: Sorry, that's already been discussed

              It is a good question, and one I don't have an answer for at this time. I was aware of past limitations (so I was told anyway) and that php was not the best way to do it. I haven't needed to sit down and task out a application to stream video.
              Finding out what the best way to go about it would be what I have to do first, and that's not something I have a ton of time for. Sorry for my misinformation

                The bottleneck for any large video streaming application is going to be bandwidth to actually stream the videos and just raw CPU power to encode the uploaded videos. Neither of which are language/platform specific...

                  I've coded php video walls using youtube hosted videos. The problem isn't php, it's creating a software platform that will play the videos in browser, and allow users to upload. If vb can integrate such an application into their software, the page can be easily coded with php, and scalable.

                    Right, I was talking about all of the backend stuff, not just displaying an embedded video, that is very simple stuff.

                      Just think, on VB5 you'll be able to do a real sidenote

                        Still off-topic (), but FWIW, let's not forget the possibility of calling external programs / embedding C extensions for compiling into PHP if you require to perform a CPU intensive backend task.

                          I consider people complaining about borrowed features to be trolling.

                          Does vBulletin 5 have feature X? Is it implemented well? If the answer to those 2 questions is yes, get over yourself.

                              Serving flash videos is not language specific. PHP still should load balance just fine (or any other language for that matter), it's more of a webserver scalability problem. And talking about facebook, they've started with MySql too...but then moved to Cassandra (although they still have some tiny pieces in MySql).
