    Hey guys,

    I've seen a moderate growth on youtube over the last 4 months and am netting a couple hundred bucks a month in profit if a video goes viral (and people click on the ads).

    I feel that step one has been achieved and now I move onto step 2. Creating a blog/video site to showcase all of these videos + ones that are too hot for youtube (18+) in order to increase my bottom line. My content is similar to that of a live-leak or wshh.

    Ive already bought a vps (2gb ram + 50gigs space + 2 tb traffic) that is set to be provisioned within that month and a decent url that it think can grow a following. I'm planning on using wordpress. My question is, how can i pre-roll ads similair to the way youtube does it so that if i locally host a video or link one from youtube, it will display within the same page before the actual video plays ? I know longtail has a solution but i need something cost effective.

    I appreciate any advice.
