    Hey guys,

    I've been working on this autoblog for a while now.
    Tell me what you think.

    h**p://tv.blogfreestuff.info/ ATM I've finished the code for fetching the video, thumb, and data. now I only need to write the script that checks an rss feed for changes and if any post them.

    I'm going to make money with it by using premium content gateways.

    The theme editing isn't finished either, just want to hear some opinions.

    Regards, Ruler0fAll

    You can probably find a script to do exactly what you are doing, but if you wish to code it by hand, good on you :) Looks alright accuatly, good job, keep it up! :)

    I don't think there are scripts that can get all the info from the html page including thumbnail video url etc. At least not for free. So i made this, just need to implement some kind of logging so it doesn't fech anything twice.

    Will start on automating it today.

    I really like the way it looks, everything loads quickly. If you're going to add a content gateway I would highly recommend getting the blackhatcodebreaker . com and adding your own offers to the list, don't use CPALead. You'll regret it, conversions are crap with them and they shave 99% of the time.

    The design looks really good. Now you have to find ways to automate everything. There are plenty post about autoblogs that could b helpful for you.

    I'm a PHP professional so making it automated isn't going to be hard, no need for guides.
    I might look at the gateway script on here, but so far cpalead seems to work just fine.
    But if I can make a gateway myself it'll be far more customizable so I might do that.

    Very nice RulerOfall. I like the Arclite them.

    The only thing I might suggest is to make your RSS and Comment links bigger or put them in a place they will be found easier. They're a bit hard to find.

    I'm thinking about making a general rss link somewhere.
    But for the comments, i've removed them from all pages because people should come there to watch video's right.

    I think only with hulu link you have basically limited it to a US audience.

    Update, i've now got a database of 701 shows from hulu that are fetched at random, but chance is 1 of five it takes a random show and 4 of 5 it takes a popular one

    Well this is a free wordpress blog i'm hosting on my own server. but with a normal one, I don't think so, well maybe you can by using xmlrpc but that wouldn't be able to assign categories.

    Update: Limited Categories in nav and sidebar to 14 and added a more button to both that goes to a web page with all shows.

    doesn't matter.
    However I don't quite get what you mean.
    I'll just answer my interpretation, so you mean that you can only modify the look if you host it yourself ? yes, only then you can change it to this I think. You could do this with a wordpress blog you uploaded/installed somewhere too. But most webhosts will ban you for the scripts I wrote as they are resource intensive.
