I want to create a site that would be a cross between a YouTube clone and an article site like EzineArticles etc. Might be able to modify one of the many video sharing clone scripts available, or just add video upload functions to a article site script.
Because of cost and time considerations I would like to start with an out of the box script and modify it.
We need some of the functions of a youtube clone like video upload and conversion, copy and paste code to share video, viewer comments/questions, related videos, etc.
But we need the organization and left hand navigation of an article site.
Also need to be able to upload an article and still pics to accompany the video.
Not sure if the clones have this feature, but it would be great if the author/contributer would recieve a email when comments/questions are posted on their video/article so they can reply.
And of course the almighty dollar, I'll need to be able to place adverts to monitize the site.
Hope this is clear enough, please ask any questions you may have.
