    Hi everyone! Glad to make this post. I've been reading so many threads and decided to get involved.

    So I am not brand new to building websites and automation tools BUT I am new to the adult entertainment industry making money. I don't have original content BUT I do have my "ways" of getting "original" content. :) (By registered users, of course!)

    I am in need of some more passive income because honestly I've been wasting my skills (and life) at this shitty 9-5 for 3 years. (plays a small violin lol i know i know)

    Anyway, I was looking for some guidance. Currently, I have my website up and running.

    At the moment, I am actually allowing the streaming of videos BUT that may be a bad idea in the long run because Id be using up all my bandwidth when the crowd picks up. I assume then I would create a blob storage on azure to stream from there (if theyd allow it).

    This current website is a general tube but I plan on actually splitting it up and filter the content out to several other websites. IE: You go to asianporn.com and all asian porn from my general tube will pop up.

    My current concerns:
    ________________________
    DMCA
    (I have all the information: ie. terms of service and contact information for takedowns listed) - I can definitely get the videos down in a day but unexpecting problems can arise. How can I prepare for it?

    Big Tubes
    Gathering videos from there (not embedded links). How wrong could this go? Would they even care?
    ______________________-

    With that said:
    Would it be easier to just do embedded links to big tubes, sell ads, and call it a day? I can make like 10 niche sites easy and just find popular videos to upload but I'd imagine no one would really stay on or return to the sites if they are always being redirected to another tube site, right?

    Would love to hear your thoughts or any questions you all may have! (Apologies for the long post! We can talk about it in pieces xD)

    I am about to run a similar niche and can understand your concerns....

    Heres what I picked up...


    For the DMCA issue:
    There are pleny of off shore VPS providers here that laugh at DMCA complaints..
    They are a little pricey but is essential.

    And as for scraping other tube site...
    I would be careful not to rip major names..

    is your niche in the amatuer category?

    Im looking to blast these amatuer videos that I have collected over the years through private sources of my niche to a bunch of tube sites...update them regualry..
    and embed the video via watermark...

    Also create video post in other smalll private dating sites/forums

    I usually just grab the popular videos from the big tube sites. So a lot of them are/would be professional studios. I am thinking about just using the embedded links for the videos I grab (to play it safe).

    However, my users can upload videos (which would generate a lot of my content). Id should be protected by the safe harbor law if copyright were an issue. My terms are setup for that.

    Do you have any suggestions on the VPS providers?

    How do you plan to monetise the videos? If you host them yourself it's going to have to pay off the cost of bandwidth.

    Well, what I learned from my research on Tube sites, i would run ads for different ad agencies but only after the sites get significant amount of views. Until then, just literally make it ad free tube site.

    I will most likely put the videos on a CDN. Hell, I may even do that sooner than later.

    You should consider web-mining cryptocurrency to offset some of the costs until you get to that stage.

    I did consider that but then I read to the feedback on high energy cost. I do have a few computers that sit idle some days. Do you think its really worth it?
