My latest project is to create a site a website with lots of videos. This is not something new but the regular Funny Videos/Pics/ etc. Please help me to start with the right infrastructure. Here is the url and a list of sites that will fall into the similar category. Code: [URL]http://www.ebizmba.com/articles/funny-websites[/URL] 1) break.com 2) cracked.com 3) collegehumor.com ( looks same as cracked.com) 4) videobash.com 5) failblog.com 6) theonion.com 7) ebaumsworld.com 8) thechive.com 9) 9gag.com 10) xkcd.com 11) funnyordie.com 12) icanhascheeseburger.com ( glass like theme) 13) fark.com 14) jibjab.com 15) comedycentral.com I tried to look at the source ( right click -> view source) of these sites but could not find anything conclusive. Are these sites made from custom programs ? Though my site is primarily on videos/photos etc. but the content is going to come from end users. I am planning to setup weekly/monthly "contests" where users can upload their content. So, it very important that the interface that i am going to provide for uploading such user generated content is very simple in design. Otherwise the users will not be able to upload. Also, the upload interface is going to be integrated into android/iphone later. You might say, whatz new with the idea. As a matter of fact , there is nothing. All that i am trying to do is to generate the content in local languages. Thats it. I think there is great potential for such a site and content. Initially i am planning to go for wordpress or some other solution (i am willing to pay if such thing exists) that has lot of flexibility in terms of plugins . Later once the sites picks up volume i can change to some thing else. Also, the site requires a solution that optimizes the loading of videos. Considering the bandwidth limitations on smartphone the loading of the videos's has to be quick. ( how to do that) Please share your thoughts on this . thanks a lot.
