Presales question - video or file?

#1 Postby secrethq » Nov 26, 2013 6:11 am

Trying to decide which script to get.. Just looking for a personal video site, 1 uploader.. no front end.. encoding probably predone.

All help is very much appreciated.

..so - filesharing (xfs) with video mods.. or videosharing (xvs) script?

it seems common practice in these forums: users take xfs + video mod + ads over video + nginx and run with it.

but can more be added to the filesharing script?

is xfs compatible with xvs mods?

Time Slider mod
HD / Mobile encoding mod
Watermarking.. etc.

Sorry if this is a noob question spelled out somewhere already.. - I did search around a little first.

and also.. if you would be so kind.

We already use leaseweb for several other niches.. but,

what is a good main server for this script? dual core? more?

the script/videos will see 250k vid calls per day. 80Mb vids.. from day 1. (or as long as it takes to get 1 video on the site anyway.. lol :p )

not sure if you need more info..


Again, thanks for your time.

if encoding is predone, go with xfs; you don't need xvs

xfs can be customized to use those xvs mods, but do you really need it ? your the only uploader and already have the needed traffic

you would need atleast a quad core for your main server

250k * 80Mb = 20TB approx, you would need atleast 4-5gbit of dedicated bandwidth to push that kind of traffic

Mods are not compatible.
So, if your videos already encoded - get xfs (howerver, you would not be able to use HD/Mobile, Timeslider, etc mods).

Thanks for the quick replies!

last question before purchasing..

is the nginx mod with xfs the same as the Built-in nginx support for xvs?

instead of paying $200 for the 1st server and $50 for the additional server on xfs..

is that coming included with the xvs setup?

Thanka again.

Yes, you're right. File servers in XVS using nginx as a web server by default while XFS is using apache (nginx is optional mod).
