    I would like to have a site where I talk about boxing or mma or wrestling, like a review. I would also like to upload HD video of what im talking about, the matches or fights. I use wordpress. What are my biggest challenges? I dont think I could host the videos. Maybe I could though, because I really just want the site as a hobby for myself and for my friends to be able to watch cool matches and fights and stuff. So not much traffic? I am asking because I don't think I can upload certain copyrighted content to youtube or dailymotion right? I dont want to have to be re-uploading stuff. I was gonna just blow it off as im busy at work, but to hell with it I figured I would ask on here. Maybe someone can recommend a good host site? Or just tell me to forget about it? If this is in the wrong section I apologize.

    If you're going to make a wordpress page, you should definitely use some type of external video sharing service for your videos. Zuffa and Top Rank and stuff will get them taken down quite quickly. Try to find a foreign video sharing website and go with that and just link to them or embed them on your WP Page. :p

    I think Vimeo is pretty chill about this sort of thing. I've seen videos on there that were deleted on YouTube and other sites.

    Daily motion is the easiest and most popular site in the entire internet. Some other video sites would be Metacafe, Revver, and Putfile. I'm sure there are hundred

    Nice I haven't heard of putfile. I need to check out metacafe too. But dailymotion is the big it seems.

    Youtube is the most protected and to much TOS to read. They forbide to much kind of videos.

    Vimeo and dailymotion are the most reliable ones
