Home video sharing - .02 from people doing this
 
ok as the kids are growing, I have around 1T of video converted since they were born. I want to put them online, safe to only people I share with, give access to, etc. I was thinking youtube, but not sure. I have access to my own linux webserver, so thought about the following options;

1. Push to youtube. Make them unlisted, then use the wordpress api, have them login there and have access.

2. Another video site such as vimeo, etc. (are there others, how is security)

3. Push them all to my webserver. My problem is how to embed them, as a link will just download. So do I run a vncserver or something?

Thanks ... these are pricessless and I do want friends, etc. to see, just not the world!

Thanks.

HTML <video> Tag
Code:

<video width="320" height="240" controls>
  <source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
  <source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg">
  Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>

hmmm, looks pretty simple enough, I thought I would need some server in the background to buffer, etc. but will gladly give it a shot.

Tnx

oh there was also something that you had to put this line before head
Code:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

You don't need the xmlns attribute. It's for XHTML. The video tag is supported in HTML5, which is not XHTML.

Nope, I don't think that youtube would be a good place to put them. Probably multiple hard drives.

another way would be, convert the videos to flv, upload to webserver, use flowplayer
or some other flash based solution
you could also write a simple PHP script to automate this by scanning the directory and creating links to play the videos

Yes, but don't convert them to flv. Convert them instead to to either H264 video with AAC audio in an MP4 container, or VP8 video with Vorbis audio in a WebM container, depending on which browser you like. Then you can play them directly in the browser, with no need for Flash or any of that crap.

for very safe and ONLY the people you want
have a look at the F2F program "oneSwarm"
it is fully encrypted and requires an encryption hash to access
it also has a web interface
