I need a simple video upload script, sort of like a youtube deal. Many websites offer CHEAP youtube clone scripts, but mine needs to be slightly modified. I need to be able to have people make accounts just like youtube, so that they can upload their videos, but every week I need to be able to allow only 300 of our account holders to upload a video specifically to be voted on by people across the world. So at the end of every week I can come on and announce the winner of the votes. Eventually I need to set up a way for those 300 people to pay a set price$$ for their entry video. But for the first few weeks, it will be free. I want to make sure that people can't vote for themselves multiple times, so someway to record the IP address of each computer would be needed, or another mechanism that could stop repeat voters. Also, before a user uploads their video, they'd need to agree to a terms of service disclaimer.
Another option would be to allow users to upload their videos to youtube, and then just use our site with youtube plugins to display them in their profile, and enter the videos in the pot if they were one of the 300 picked to be voted on that week. This would save a lot of bandwidth and make it less costly over all for me.
If anyone has bids or more ideas to contribute feel free! Thanks!
