    I doubt you can. If you're gonna host videos yourself, no way around it. You would need some beast compression algorithm, but you also need to keep the quality.

    You can, in fact you can buy youtube type scripts that you can install on your website. You will need to know PHP and data basing for it to work. In fact I could possibly set it up for you but I would ask for thousands of $$ to do it due to it being mind bending and time consuming to construct but it's very easily possible.

    The problem is bandwidth, and no hosting site is going to allow a youtube type website as a costumer no matter how much you pay.

    You will have to go it alone.

    What most of your cost will be is buying servers, and a lots of them. Even giant google, the ones who bought out youtube is having problems trying to hold all that data and bandwidth. So a small youtube type site might work but in the long run you will go broke.

    If you have the caps $$ I have an idea for a new social site that could possibly work and I would construct it too. But even though I would be doing most if not all the back end work I would need a partner with enough capital to get up and running. PM if you have the cash and the interest.
