Video host script project php mysql

After the massive popularity of youtube there were many niche video hosts created and so here's my take on it with a friend's idea and my programming skills...the website is called (defunct) and since we didn't have the funds after getting over 100s of hits/day in first week it went down to a steady 5/day so I decided to put out the source code in hopes that someone will find it useful, as always feel free to improve, remix, re-use!

If there's enough demand may place this on sourceforge and continue development.

-Flash player (flowplayer) with controls (pause play, full screen and seek)
-Video page with description, title, date posted, count views, thumbnail (image) and the flash video
-Share video on Twitter
-Share video on Facebook
-Share video on Google plus one
-Commenting on videos with Disqus
-Next and previous videos buttons
-Random Video button
-Pages (pagination)
-Featured page with thumbnail images, title and short description, order by newest first
-Most viewed page, same as featured but ordered by most viewed
-Search videos (with google custom search)
-auto tweet to twitter when new video added/uploaded
-auto generate sitemap when new video added (great for Google web and custom search)

-Unzip the contents and upload to your root directory
-modify the db.php with your database info (database info will be added soon)
-modify the index.php with contact info (email, facebook and twitter if you have it) and about info
-if you want twitter status updated when new videos added follow the twitter developer instructions (will be provided later)
-database structure (sql download) provided at the bottom, upload it to your mysql database host

How to use:
To post video go to post.php (no login authentication yet) upload via ftp (no browser upload yet) the flash video (.flv -- no conversion yet) to videos directory, upload the image thumbnail to images directory, past the name of image, name of flash file, add title and description, choose date or leave the existing and click to post the video.

The rest will sort it self and work on it's own, featured goes by latest page, most viewed or popular by most views on individual pages. Share them and enjoy!

There's many features that I would like to have done for this project but the development has been halted as the project came to an end and no further videos have been added, if someone is interested in helping with posting new videos I may continue the development with the following being ideas for new features:
-Add html5 video player support (so videos can be viewed on iDevices-ipod,iphone,etc)
-Add tags and keywords to videos for better SEO
-Ability to upload from browser (now it's only text addition in browser, upload files via FTP)
