    Hey everyone.

    I've been working on an anime website since around September 2015 and I'm at a point where I need to go back to the drawing board. At first I kind of just dove right in and started manually embedding videos into my website, but that is sooo inefficient and time-consuming.

    Since I'm not that experienced in making a video streaming website, I've been looking around trying to find information that will help me with my problems. But I haven't really found the answers that I'm looking for.

    So could anyone help/guide me with questions that I have in making an anime streaming website?

    I have seen many websites just use Wordpress + plugins for video streaming. Are you planning to host videos on your servers or use other servers?

    If you are planning to embed videos from other sites, you should go for wordpress theme. Just go to wordpress theme page and search for video streaming themes. That should help.

    I'm not going to host my own videos (maybe in the future). I want to build a new system of adding/updating/removing content. So everything should just be a process (all I have to do is rinse and repeat). But the thing is I don't really want to use a wordpress theme because it'll make my website look like it's using a wordpress theme (I hope that made sense). I want to make a more sophisticated website and in the hopes that it competes with the big name anime streaming websites out there now.

    It's possible to have a good anime site that uses wordpress and all that, but I actually am trying to improve user's experience when streaming for anime content. I'm trying to apply what I think would be good features to an anime streaming site so that it will improve other user's experience. So I'm not trying to make an anime streaming site just for money. I know if I plan and put a lot of effort into my website, I will have an awesome site and money will come.

    So I'm working on just building the system of my website (as I mentioned above).
