Video sharing site


#1

Hi, we have a client who want a video sharing site and we are asking our
self if Rails is good for it or if it’s better with PHP. We see a lot
of video sharing site with PHP but maybe one or two with ROR why? Is it
that PHP is better for a video sharing site. What is your thought about
that. PHP or ROR and why?

Someone have an idea?

I’ve seen a decent amount of video sharing sites using Rails. Probably
the
most well known is http://www.funnyordie.com/.
I bet it is not what you mean by a “video sharing” site, but the open
source
app I work on does video sharing among other things:

http://kete.net.nz/

http://horowhenua.kete.net.nz/site/all/videos/

I was just looking into putting some polish into the presentation of
uploaded videos yesterday, namely adding thumbnails for video and
perhaps
FLV conversion. Seems straightforward enough. This thread might point
you
in the right direction:
