Get The Most Diverse Range Of Video Hosting Solutions At Certified Hosting02/09/2012
Video sharing websites such as YouTube, Vimeo, and DailyMotion make big bucks by providing an easy way for people to upload and share homemade videos. To give you an idea of the scope of the user-generated content revolution, consider that YouTube alone serves more than 3.5 billion videos every day – and that number keeps growing. Now add all the videos uploaded to Facebook, MySpace, and other social networks, plus the millions of self-hosted videos, and you can start to form a vague idea of about how many clips are played on the Internet on any given day.
Without doubt, the public is hungry for videos. The demand is present. Now it’s up to you and other Internet entrepreneurs to provide the supply. Certified Hosting puts at your disposal a diverse range of video hosting solutions, all of which come with unlimited disk space, bandwidth, and domains. In this post, we explore the video web hosting applications supported by Certified Hosting and how to choose the most suitable application for your needs.
VidiScript video hosting
VidiScript is a free and open source video sharing web application that comes packed with resources usually only found in paid applications. The application is search engine friendly, enabling you to tap into the all-important search engine traffic. With VidiScript, you can build a full-fledged video sharing site using features like memberships, groups, channels, comments, history, profiles, ratings, and many others. What’s more, you have complete, in-depth control over how your website looks and behaves.
ClipBucket video hosting
ClipBucket is another free and open source offering you should consider as your video hosting solution. The application is relatively new, but it has become quite popular and boasts an active community that can help with your projects. ClipBucket supports JWPlayer and Flowplayer, two of the most popular online video players, but it also allows you to embed YouTube videos easily. ClipBucket offers more than video sharing capabilities – you can use it to host music and photos in addition to clips. If you’re looking for a cheap but feature-rich video web hosting service, ClipBucket may be worth a look.
PHPMotion video hosting
PHPMotion is a solid, entry-level video hosting script that is a great option for beginners and for those looking for a hassle-free video web hosting solution. PHPMotion lacks important features such as SEO-friendly URLs and integration with forum scripts, so make sure you check the official feature list before committing to using it. The software is easy to customize in terms of appearance due to the CSS-based templating system. PHPMotion supports MP3 uploading and photo galleries, as well as blog posts that you can edit easily with the WYSIWYG editor.
vShare video hosting
Labeled as a YouTube cloner, vShare does exactly what it claims – it allows you to quickly create a YouTube-like video portal. vShare is available for a modest price, but if you want to remove the vShare copyright notice, you will need to pay another small fee. The software offers everything you would expect from a video hosting script – users and groups support, personal profiles, playlists, comments support, a rating system, etc. vShare does not have a strong community like some of the other solutions, but you can get help from an active support forum.
ClipShare video hosting
ClipShare is available in two versions, Lite and Pro, with the Pro version offering advanced functionality, including RSS feeds, video admin approval, avatars, a stats box, and a background conversion process. ClipShare is more expensive than the other solutions in this overview. The cheapest option is ClipShare Lite , while the high-end special bundle (ClipShare Pro plus free upgrades, plug-ins, and installation) cost quite a bit more. One common complaint about ClipShare is the inadequate support – our advice is to consider it only if you’re confident about your technical skills.
