Is there any software or open source that allows you to make your own custom video player like the youtube player, google video player, etc?

Yes, but it would be a large project.

i'd suggest searching google for some options.

You might need to pay something for a player for your site, though.

To answer the topic related question, yes Flash can do it. BUT like djr said.. I would suggest finding a premade version through google and going with that.

To do it in Flash you are looking at about 10 different application files and an AS file with well over 100,000 lines of code...

That sounds like a lot of fun.

Also, if you feel the need, you could include your version of program to play your new format of video on a desktop, and create your own file format.

Google is insane. But they're great.

Actually you could do the flash actionscript with less than 250 lines of code
i managed to do it with 198.
Anyway, its not as complicated as everyone makes it sound.
But if you are looking for a quick little thing you can use i suggest

Yes, and using AS3.0 I could write a working version with about 120 lines.

HOWEVER, it won't be secure, prevent auto downloads or linking, and on and on.

I found this a while back. Seems pretty high but looks like they stand behind it

Maybe their hosting guys have something

I really don't trust them. They're using copyrighted names ("you tube") which is just stupid, and they're using the logos for iMovie, iTunes and Preview (mac default image viewer), respectively. Not a reliable company.

I second that. I get the feeling of the "we only need one" syndrome. Where they charge you a monthly base to cover their dedicated server costs, and then a "one time" set up to cover their beer money.

I would step away from them as well. For that money you can get your own dedicated server and do it yourself. Probably for better, and cheaper in the long run.

Nope, i use AS 2, and it is secure (Not the ones on programmer 2, those are just demos).
Trick is to make it object oriented.

And you don't think I could grab your oop?

You missed the point though, it wasn't an attack ;)

suzysuzy: It's not a plug-and-play application that will come up with full features. Of course you need to make your own authentications and uploads. You've gotta learn HTML/PHP if you want to make all those and I don't insist you to use Frontpage, just a suggestion though.

Good Luck.

Features
YouTube Video Applet Feature Gallery

Full screen view permits the viewer a cinema-style display of the video, with a close button in the lower-right corner to return to normal view. view

YouTube - like interface to rate videos is shown at the end video playback. The system advances to the next set of videos from videos.xml automatically. view

Option exists to show the currently played video at its original size, or open a new window to show the video in full screen view. view

Video paths and titles are stored in an XML file, alone with rating and view information. This file must be CHMOD'd after upload to your PHP server. view

In config.xml, you may set the e-mail formatting options for the video sharing feature, with a link to view the video on your server, just like YouTube.com! view

Over two dozen XML configuration options exist to adjust various aspects of the video applet, like color, video path, autostart, and other common options. view

When users share a video, a YouTube-like email is received with a link to view the video on the server. view

When a video is rated, the user's IP is recorded along with the file that was rated, to prevent duplicate ratings. view

100% of the Flash 8 Pro source code is included with the purchased version of this applet, including the .fla file, and all .as (ActionScript) files. view


Sounds like it is pretty much upload and go to me. As are all of tufat's scripts. I use a few myself. Set up your database, upload the files it tells you to. Browse to the install.php page and follow the instructions.

Doesn't get any easier than that, except if you can make someone else do it.

Oh.. and drop front page. The only thing worse than Front Page.. is using it.
