1. What is YouTube?
---------------From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
YouTube is a video sharing website where users can upload, view and share video clips. YouTube was created in mid-February 2005 by three former PayPal employees. The San Bruno-based service uses Adobe Flash technology to display a wide variety of user-generated video content, including movie clips, TV clips and music videos, as well as amateur content such as video blogging and short original videos.
2. How to design YouTube Website?
To design a website like YouTube, there are 3 main tools that you have to use. They are Web design software like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and tools for active page development; sever-based video to flash video converter like Adobe® Flash® Media Interactive Server 3; Web FLV player creator like Moyea Web Player. Then I would like to show you how to design a YouTube website step-by-step.
Firstly, to design a website, we have to use some web design tools. Currently, Dreamweaver and FrontPage are commonly used by most web designers. You can streamline your development workflow by creating and editing images in Fireworks and flash works in Adobe Flash CS3, and then import them directly into Dreamweaver. Then you must develop a login, logout and register system, upload system, database system to store the videos uploaded by customers, which require active page technique, like ASP.NET, PHP, Java…
Secondly, after the web page completed, because it’s sure that the videos uploaded by people would be much unorderly, then YouTube must contain a video to flash video (.flv) converter that can convert all kinds of video files which are uploaded by all customers to flash video (.flv) format file; YouTube needs software which can make these video files standardization including format standardization, size standardization, WxH standardization, etc. More important, this software must have the ability of contain any numbers of video files that are uploaded by the people all over the world to flash video (.flv) file. Meanwhile, this software must have the ability of crop and trim video files.
Other importent things i know about website creation are those one must have a little command over adob dream weaver or tools such like that. becasuse with your this skill you will be able to design your youtube like website more efficiently and easily.
