Video sharing site project started today

Soon I will release a video sharing site - just to give it a test run and see what this is about. I'm still in the process of figuring out my language support and general theme of the site, while I get some more experience in FFMpeg hosting in general.
In basic it will work much like the famous YouTube everyone knows. Should be possible to upload videos of your own choice and have the ability to send video comments in through your own webcam.
Will try to build a community around the site and make it a site where you can easily host your videos.

A general themed video site will probably be to big a mouthful to take and YouTube is great at covering that market. I believe this video site should be on a specific niche for most success.

I'm testing several finished scripts available and will determine if I can use anything already build or if I should built my own. Hopefully I can get my long list of requirements fulfilled by the first choice, and thereby save a lot of time in development.

I made the mistake last time on my Danish News Site to reveal the domain name while I was still developing the actual site, which ended up in a big amount of new visitors and general users who was using an unfinished site. Gave me a bit of overwork - so this time I will just reveal I am working on a site to share videos and the actual domain will come later as I am pleased with the result.

To be continued.....

    Cheers Lars.
    The project has been put on ice for a couple of weeks due to another project I got my hands on. ( I will probably write a post about the new project ), but the video site will be realized within reasonable time. Got the hosting and domain name covered now.
    If you got any good ideas to a niche to cover, be sure to let me know.
    The video site will probably be in Danish.
