So my new pet project is creating a YouTube-esqe site for my family, where all of our family videos can be shared amongst relatives, without having to deal with YouTube, or other existing video sites.
My question to the community is if anyone knows a script that satisfies these requirements more specifically (I'm a firm proponent of not re-inventing the wheel).
More specifically, all the site needs to do is the following:
1) Maintain a list or dataset of the videos, with metadata such as date, location, description, etc.
2) Display FLV files through as a low-quality version of the video (for sharing, or previewing)
3) Maybe allow for customization? Tags, direct links to the raw video, etc., would be nice.
Encoding isn't an issue, since all of that is being done on my computer. The original plan was to write all of this on my own (developing in PHP is what I do), but I have a gut feeling that someone, somewhere, has made something similar.
Thanks in advance.
