would be nice to see something like this as a one click install http://www.phpmotion.com/ would solve a lotta problems for me and i suspect a few others as well .

i'd install it myself but im unsure if dreamhost has all the required elements to do so .. Anyone else know ??

On the face of the documentation provided on that site, you *could* install the application on DreamHost, but you would have to install all the supporting software yourself, and install a custom PHP version configured per their instructions. This is not "trivial" to do, even if you are highly knowledgeable about such things. Wink

That said, it would likely not run well, if at all, on a DH shared server.

The primary issues are:

The required execution time setting (would likely run afoul of DH's "procwatch" program which kills processes consuming too much CPU or RAM resources or running too long)

The requirement that you are able to run "background processes" (depending upon exactly what they mean by that, it could be a TOS violation and/or another resource usage problem that would attract the murderous wrath of "procwatch")

High memory requirements/consumption.

Additionally, the number of concurrent connections such a site is likely to attract is generally not appropriate for low-cost shared servesr, and should probably only be attempted on a dedicated server (or possibly the new DreamHost PS service?).

Managing copyright infringement issues with such a program is likely to also be a major PITA for you. Wink

I agree, it would be nice to have such functionality for the price of a DreamHost shared server account, but I don't see it happening anytime soon. In time, who knows?

In summary, I am *sure* it could be installed, but if you managed to do it, I believe you would not be happy with its operation and IMO it could lead to your service being suspended for excessive use of resources.

wow thanks very much for an extremely comprehensive answer . For what i was actually looking for this script is really big overkill but its the only one that i can find that i can remove pieces from and make it run how i want .

There is in fact no need for me to have user uploaded videos and a wide variety of the functions that go along with them can be removed as well all i really need it for is to update a main page and archive pages of flash videos and maybe the comments boxes thats about it ..

thanks again for your speedy and comprehensive answer any idea where i might be able to get such a script or is hiring a coder my only option ?

You're welcome! While I have not seen anything that offers *exactly* what you are describing, what immediately comes to mind is using WordPress (with appropriate plugins) or Joomla! (with appropriate extensions).

You could use other software to create the .FLV or .SWF flash videos on your own computer for uploading *or* just use the DreamHost provided media.dreamhost.com video conversion tool to create your .FLV's.

This way you would have an easily updated CMS system, easy display of online video, built-in commenting functions, and easy updating of other components of the site.

From what you indicate your needs to be, this would probably work very well, and is worth investigating. Wink

thanks again after i posted i went skirting around the streaming media (i think) forum and came up with a cms that i think will add up the files (havent a clue how the guy did it but he is on dreamhost and using this cms so i know its possible http://www.emalbum.com/ is what he is using and he's using the paid for ($25) version i think maybe i'll have to see how he's intergrated that to run with the dreamhost tools .

both wordpress and joomla are way too advanced for what i need if you know what i mean but as the site is going to use wordpress also maybe i can find a way to pick out the videos from the blog pages on my main page hmmm thats food for thought ahyway thanks again for getting back to me its nice that people reply Smile

No problem. I'll admit I'm a little confused now though, as emablumn is a very different type of script than a video hosting site. (in fact, it seems to pretty much do the same thing that the one-click "gallery" installation on Dreamhost does). Wink

At any rate, it looks like you are well on your way to finding a solution, and that is good. You might want to take a look at at a DreamHosted site that has a lot of video embeded in a Joomla! installation to see what I was talking about with my suggestion regarding using Joomla! or WordPRess as the *basis* for a video archiving site:

ah ok check this out its actually posted in this forum http://discussion.dreamhost.com/showflat...=all&part= sorry for the long link .

the site using joomla is very good but i still cant help but think joomla is a little overkill for what i need . i dont need anyone to log in post comments etc i just need the site to show movies like the gallery in the example above

im now looking into a plugin for gallery2 to see if i can achieve the same thing with that Smile

Ah! Very nice.. I now remember that discussion. Smile

I see what you mean about the simplicity aspects of it..and I'm sure you will be able to find a plugin or workaround to use gallery2 to display the videos. Good luck with it, and let us know when you get it set up, ok? Wink
