    We already builded movies/tv series streaming website and have some difficulties. Once the site was finalized(remained some trifles), we started uploading movies on videomega.tv (we chose as a host with the best conditions). In less than a month where uploaded about 150 movies and we were ready to start to advertise and promote the site. Unfortunately few days ago i loged in our Cpanel from video host, and there were only 4 videos. Previously we have not received any notification that any file is deleted from the host or breaking some policy rules, we tried more than 10 times to contact them and no answer.
    The main problem is that you can't upload more than 3 videos at once, you must wait host to convert them(it takes about 45 minutes for each). We already invested some money on hosts,website and similar and don't want to give up from this project, so am looking for some ideas and suggestions. We use offshore host from Abelohost and Cloudflare, domain from Goddady(with privacy protection) also web is Wordpress based and easy to management and use. I can share the link only in private message and with those who are really ready to help us.

    Files will always get deleted, so you have to have a workaround. I use an uploader
    Code:
    [URL]http://z-o-o-m.eu/[/URL]
    from here, it helps you with the uploading and all. Let me know if you need any more help about the topic, and I will try my best to help you. :)

    all the hosts delete videos due to dmca / copyright.some announce you, some don't.it is better to have 2-3-4 hosts for the same movie/ tv show available.
    if the video host does not support zoom, try one with FTP as it will reduce your time in case you have to reupload something.
    I am a video uploader for about 5-6 years, I am here if you have more questions.

    let me ask you something, why the hell you decided to upload them on your own host... there are so many scripts with their own players that allow you only to stream them but no host them form other sites...

    I don't mean to be a downer, but why are you making a streaming movie site? 5 or 6 years ago,sure, but now? you clearly don't have th power to compete with established sites and unless you are super super niche, there is no way i would ever use a site like yours and i use streaming sites daily.

    Really? it may not be like it was 5/6 year ago but for sure you can drive traffic and profit from it, you don't even need to be good in SEO, you can drive without any effort 200-300 daily unique visits from twitter along automatic with 2 fresh accounts posting only 20 times/day with a 2/3 hashtags, now scale that up and you could be making anything between 10-40+/day if you know your target audience.

    I started a movie streaming site and traffic started to come in fast, I just didn't want to continue with it so never really monetized the site and closed it down finally. But yes, I can vouch bringing in traffic shouldn't be a problem even with minimum promotion and no SEO.

    I don t get it but seem like you fix the problem by starting upload again? Also, sometimes you will need offshore with your fake detail and everything if you work on this movie streaming.

    Hi,

    Maybe some of you will find this technique unethical, but you can build a robot and get all the movies/tv shows from your competitors.

    No need to upload, you can get thounsand fresh movies in few days...and even build another robot that replaces all the deleted videos by new ones.
