Sean Effel from recently created an excellent Feed API + Emfield Recipe video tutorial.

He shows you step-by-step how to take a video feed from Blip.TV (or any other provider supported by Embedded Media Field) and aggregate it on your own site, videos, thumbnails, and all, automatically turning the remote videos into nodes on your site, ready for theming, comments, and anything else you want.

That would be fine to sharpen video feeding and aggregating the same on my own site for better theming, comments so on and so forth. Lesson on how to take a video feed is very helpful for me.garage door price

This can be the core of a web app

This video feed technology could be used to make a super cool video web application like YouTube, except it's your youtube ("yourtube"?). :)

If I wasn't totally overloaded with work I'd build it myself.

First, bring PHP memory down

First, bring PHP memory down to about 32MB. 128 will kill your server with any reasonable load. Secondly, you're doing everything right. However, FileField is undergoing changes that currently breaks this great combo. You need to wait a week or two, sorry. (You could, however, develop the site in Drupal 5 if you can't wait that long, as the combo still works there.) Things will certainly work soon; there was just some confusion concerning the releases of that module.

That's why

That's why Drupal keeps making me want to move from wordpress, the community behind Drupal is so involved. Pretty powerful group.
