    The easiest way would be through wordpress using relevant plugins. The best way would be to get a website custom coded which is going to cost you more.

    There's a difference between embedding and uploading videos. Embedding means they add a link to the site so that you can embed their videos that are hosted on other sites like Youtube. Uploading is just what it sounds like, uploading...

    You have three options, maybe four, options:

    1. [*=1]Find a Youtube clone script and use it straight out the box
      [*=1]Find a Youtube clone and modify it
      [*=1]Code your own
      [*=1]Hire someone to code one a script

    Youtube is such a unique script though, so you won't find one exactly like it. If you find a clone, it will probably be a clone of the 2005 Youtube or something. Also, keep in the mind the cost of servers, etc.

    If you start a website let me know. :rolleyes: Because in recent days YouTube started terminating my accounts for spamming. Now I'll start spamming your brand new site to drive traffic. ;)

    If you want to make a youtube like website, where you would only upload videos by yourself then go with blogger, create an account there and google it some video templates. you will get it for free .

    But if you want other users to upload videos then o for wordpress.
