    Default Where can I get a "Youtube" type script???

    Hi folks,

    Where can I get a script similar to what youtube.com. (Preferably a free script ) I am also assuming there will many other such sites as these.

    The basic idea is to have a website where people can upload their own video.

    Or better still, I think a better question would be which amongst the free 'clone scripts' i the best. And can any1 advice me how much it could possibly cost to modify such script to suit my needs.

    Thanks for your help.

    Edit: No sites with ****ographic material, thanks. - Moderator

    Consider that youtube has many fulltime expert programmers working to keep the website active and develop the code, and that it has developed over much time. This is a difficult, immense project, and I strongly doubt you'll find any prebuilt "scripts" for this. Also, when you're talking about something this big the term "script" falls short-- this is a management system of sorts, complete with users, administrative options, and file storage, among other things.

    There aren't any free scripts that can rival YouTube. If you're looking for one this tells me that you probably don't have the needs or the means to build something like YouTube.

    At a very basic level, you need a PHP upload script. There are tons of free ones on the net. Google will turn up some good ones. Then you need a flv player. This is a very good one.

    By no means will the above get you a working website (nor anything remotely close to the functionalty of YouTube). There needs to be some PHP integration done but they'll get you started in displaying a .flv video file on your website.
