Firstly, I need help building a web site for a streaming video on demand web site. This is for the creation of the web site only. I will handle creating the graphics and design as that is still something I am good at.
I am looking for someone to code the site and it will require a fairly simple database for the member activity and profiles. Prefer php and MySQL.
This means that the person will code all the graphics I provide onto the site, create all .php pages and files and make as template driven as possible for easy updates, make sure all code is cross platform compatible, make sure all coding is implemented for functionality of the site and service (basic shopping cart, able to set exp date for video on demand, integrate existing affilate pro php program so video owners can get commission on purchases and view real time purchases, member profile area, etc)
So to be more specific:
1. Create PHP web site extremely similar in layout and programming/features to an existing web site (see below) utilizing my graphics that I will provide. Template driven for easy updates and additions.
Member Profile area (login password, order history, edit member profile, link to streaming titles purchased to be able to view, will need to set expiration date for access to video purchased and set start date to begin as soon as credit card is processed)
Admin area for access to member/site activity, orders and to add new content to site
Basic checkout for purchases - Paypal Merchant Pro will be the gateway and merchant provider and small snippet of code on checkout page so the video title purchased is referenced correctly in my Affiliate program software (purchased Affiliate Pro and very simple application).
Fully tested and functional
YOU will be responsible for testing the entire site functionality on various browsers and operating systems as well as the php/My SQL to ensure site is bug free.
I want the layout and features identically to this section of this site:
[url removed, login to view]
Basically a cookie cutter version, banners on the right, flash dissolving banner up top (which I will design as well as banner ads, menu, logo etc), All the main site menu links will be very similar with a view modifications (no blog, dvd catalog, our artists, sales)
The main differences are that the categories will be entirely different (different type of instructional videos) and I also want am additional drop down menu by instructor). Again, I want this as easy to update from the back end (admin) as possible for new content. There will be no DVD sales, strictly streaming VOD.
The site should be ready for me to just plug in new videos and add/remove categories and instructors etc.
The My Account section will have identical features to the ccp site. (I have a CCP member login and password that I can provide to the developer in order to be able to view the features I want that I have already mentioned above).
I will be using Viddler for the video hosting part of the site. From what I can tell they will handle all aspects of ensuring video is streamed for each member specification (iphone, browser/ISP speed, html5, flash, etc). These videos are an average of 60 minutes long.
If you do have experience with video on demand/video streaming that is a plus but not necessary. Just need basic advice/instruction on uploading video files to Viddler and discuss pros/cons of segmenting video into chapters or one full file, etc...basic stuff.
When you respond, I would prefer not to get a cookie cutter response but a response that reflects how your experience is a good fit for this project as well as some links to "relevant" projects you have done.
