The only solution to allow digital streaming of video and audio which can also be recorded and converted is an FFmpeg hosting site. This means that anyone can upload normal video formats to the server and perform a conversion to the flv or flash video format, which is essential to stream videos online. Many try to create a good video hosting site based on normal web hosting platforms, but it is very difficult to set up and loses the flexibility. With the help of an FFmpeg hosting site it is very easy to create and setup a private web page that includes streaming and online editing of video and audio.

Creating up a website with FFmpeg capabilities is not very difficult. Anyone with knowledge in webhosting can easily set up one.


Choosing a web host

The first important thing to look for is the features available in various hosting sites. Many hosting sites give a large amount of web space, others give more bandwidth, and some have many more capabilities than just simple hosting some static web pages. So according to the requirements, good choices should be made to get a good site.

FFmpeg capabilities

This is the next most important part to have a video and audio streaming website. There are many variations to what might be done with an FFmpeg web host. There are many popular libraries available like Mencoder, Mplayer,  Libvorbis, Libogg and Lamne MP3 encoder. PHP versions 4 or 5 may also be required to make dynamic scripts and give a good amount of functionality to the website.

Support for popular scripts used in video web hosting sites

Many popular scripts are available. These include clone scripts of Youtube, Clipshare, Vidiscript, Rayazz, vShare, Phpmotion etc. the web hosting server should be compatible with these scripts because these enable the webmaster to easily edit, modify and create video and audio files from any other file formats.

Other features

Many web hosts also feature many other extended capabilities like flash web builder, c-panel interface for easy administration of the web server, and other utility software. Though much of these may be unnecessary for an advanced user, but it would be very helpful for a beginner. For a beginner to know everything to setup a simple video hosting site is a waste of time and energy. Better it is, if the web hosts provide the services for easy setup of the site.

Reliability of the web host

This is one of the most important criteria for a good video hosting site. Since the videos are reviewed over tens and hundreds of times so reliability of the server is must for a good service.

For an inexperienced person it is very important that they pay attention to every detail and not take the things casually if they want it to be successful. This is because beginners cannot perform complex tasks or write scripts themselves, which makes them largely dependent on available codes to do their work. Hence, making the right choices will get a video hosting site up and running in a few hours.

Best ways of online video marketing

Best ways of online video marketing

It’s a very well known fact that the most vital component of business is the promotion of the product, so as to make the people aware of the product being launched by the company and also to make the customers aware of the various features provided by the product which may grab their attention of the customers. This promotion which in other term marked as marketing leads to segmentation of the market and this tries to convince each and every segment of the market on behalf of their product. There are various modes of marketing for promoting the product like giving textual ads in newspapers, distributing pamphlets and email marketing and the other one is the visual form of advertisement through television ads and online video marketing.

Best ways of online video marketing

Today internet is becoming a major source for companies for promoting their product. This is done in two ways; one is the email marketing where one company sends mails to customer’s mail id for promoting their product and the second one is the online video marketing which is done by hosting video ads on internet and distributing the link of this video to the customers.

Some vital points to be kept in mind before indulging into online video marketing procedure:

Brief description

In this busy scheduled life no one has ample time to devote in watching online marketing videos. So, if the length of the video is very large, the probability that video will be viewed decreases exponentially.  The solution to this problem is to make the video concise by giving only a brief description of the product but it should be attractive enough to grab the attention of the viewer.

Fair business

If a person thinks that in online video marketing nobody will be able to cross check the points given in the video, so the viewer can be easily fooled then he is very wrong. This is because the viewer can be initially fooled by the video but later when that person comes to know the reality, he may report abuse against that video on net and will also not promote any of the promotional videos of that company to his or her friends which will adversely affect the business of the company. So it’s better to do a fair business by giving the customers the correct information which will be beneficial for the company in the long term.

Impressive and attractive

The online video meant for marketing should be made attractive as much as possible so that the viewer feels like going through the entire video. Some suspense should be inserted some in the beginning only to be revealed at the end. This is another way to force the viewer virtually to see the entire promotion.

Best ways of online video marketing

Online video marketing has entirely revolutionized the field of marketing and is becoming much more popular day by day. It is far cheaper than promotional ads on television though not so effective but still keeping in considering the cost incurred it is an effective means of marketing.
