Business Idea / Help

I’ve been looking everywhere for a PAID service that lets me use the YouTube-like features, but without all the YouTubishness. I like:

  • Uploading my videos on a 3rd party service.
  • Free bandwidth.
  • Being able to embed videos into web pages with code snippets.

…these are all things so many YouTube clones are giving away for free. I’m surprised no one has an upgraded paid version where I can host my videos but customize them for my own businesses.

Does anyone know of one??

If not, this would be a great business idea to implement. Although it would probably be best for one of those bigger sites to just implement this. I would LOVE to pay YouTube $20/month to use their existing service, but allow me to customize the logo on the embedded video:

Not only that, but also I’d like to promote my own videos at the end, or at least post a link to another product, or perhaps show a special promotional announcement.

Of all the YouTube clones and wannabes out there, it seems everyone has been trying to directly copy the YouTube strategy, and no one remembered to CHARGE people, even if they want to pay!

    If you use a Dreamhost web hosting account, they include video hosting (without any embedded logo) for $7.95 a month – less if you use promo code 40BUCKSOFF (save $40).

    See for details.

    They offer a 97-day money-back guarantee and don’t forget to use the promo code 40BUCKSOFF when you sign up to save $40 instantly.

    I’m with you on this, and would like a similar solution…and if there are two of us, I’m sure there are many more. Regarding the above comment, I think Nev is looking more for a solution where you can just upload a vid easy and it does all the converting to FLV and all that jazz.
