How do I host videos from my computer? I don’t want to upload them to anything like youtube, I just want them to be directly from my site.
Freeware and tutorials would be great. Also, do I need to have anything from my host to play them?
Another thing:Allow certain people to upload videos.
Nothing with a userbase though. Anybody can upload.
Do you really intend to pass such an expensive and complicated process? You should know your site would be unavailable whenever your PC is turned off, and you’re leaving yourself open to attacks. Moreover, you need an internet connection with about unlimited bandwidth! So I recommend get a reliable company to do that in return for a few dollars.
As an experienced webmaster I recommend BlueHost service which I’m sure it would work for you and fulfill all your requirements. They have a really great offer for hosting & I have used them for over 3 yrs now, and have never had a single problem with them. I own a multimedia site including several hundreds of video/music files.
