    So I've got a relatively straightforward, simple business model that I think could compete with pornhub. I have a good idea of my aporoach, how to broach the market, etc etc. I have some background in IT (albeit on a broad level) but I'm trying to figure out exactly how I should be starting a video sharing website.

    The general consensus appears to be to host with wordpress, potentially using an amazon instance. Where I'm at a bit of an impasse is on how to host video content. Most people seem to agree that hosting your own content isn't smart (although couldn't a scalable amazon instance solve this problem?). So what's the alternative? This is porn, so I can't have material being pulled down, and it needs to be seamlessly integrated for the user to upload.

    Any advice is much appreciated!

    -p.s., if you're in the Richmond or DC area, I am looking for a CTO type partner for this venture. Let me know if interested.

    Let's keep it simple.

    1. Do you have a large budget and are you going to shoot your own videos (not copyrighted)? Then, host your own videos.
    2. If not, you will need to embed.

    I don't have a large budget at this point. But yes, I do plan to shoot myself and host other original content (not copyrighted material).

    Monetization will come through ads. So is there a scalable (opex) way to host my own videos that doesn't require much upfront capital, but rather an operational "pay as you go" model? I know amazon and pretty much all cloud service providers offer this, but I'm unsure of the specifics when it comes to video hosting (and again, I keep seeing people say NOT to host your own content).

    Alternatively, if I did go down the embed route, is there a way to A. avoid "unsavory" material being deleted / keep all videos private from whoever the host is and readily available in my own site? and B. integrate the video upload process so that the user doesn't need to go to a third party site to upload their videos?

    Thanks for the help!

    Yes it is possible. You should host yourself and keep the videos private if you plan to create your own content.

    A. It's impossible even when you have your own server. You can reduce the DMCA report by using captcha.

    B. You rent a VPS and let users upload to it. A VPS will upload that contents to the embedded host and delete these original files.
