    A content management system (CMS)…?
    There are several ways to have users on your site: a blog, a forum, … What do you want?

    I would like memebers on my site that can upload videos, but when they upload videos, I have to approve them. I also like the members to have their own page where they can edit themes and add text. No HTML, just themes.

    This is harder then you might imagine... Some CMS stuff migh offer the stuff you want. Other then that you will need to learn PHP or hire somebody to make you a script that does this.

    So you essentially want something like youtube? The problem is you would either A) need your own server as well as access to the server because you need to install ffmpeg or B) pay a few hundred dollars and pay for the software that everyone like youtube and google video uses.

    If you don't want the videos converted to .flv then what format would you need them to convert to?

    A project like this would probably cost you anywhere from 700-1000 US dollars. Thats on the low end.

    For a beginner, neither software is easy to use so you will likely have to hire someone who knows what they are doing. As to your server. If you are able to install software on it meaning you can physically access it then you should be able to use ffmpeg which is free which will cut down on the cost.

    I see, would it still cost more, if I ONLY have one thing for users and it is for them to sign up and make a page of their own/profile. No videos or anything.

    I think that is VBullentin or another bullentin / forum system, If you have not enough time to create one. The bullentins's user system have already fields such as username /userid / email / birthday... and I think that's enough. Of course, the best way -> create one yourself

    Just a login and user-profile system would definitely reduce costs opposed to both plus a video system. You may even be able to find both login & profile scripts for free from like hotscripts.com or a similar site.

    Its better to go step by step ... it will be hard enough to make a clone of youtube.com ... I don't know if u use orkut or not... you personal life was accessible by everyone who uses orkut now they have restricted to certain levels ... by friends only, friends' friend, everyone and yourself.

    Its better to get know how about php ... how scripts works ... work like system analyst...

    (X)HTML -> CSS -> PHP -> Web re-usability etc

    atb!

    well you would search for what you want. in this case, you want a member system & profile system.

    therefor, your search terms should be something similiar to:
    member system
    profile

    really, these things aren't very hard to figure out. take a risk, try it for yourself. get your hands dirty rather than asking everyone for something very simple. you'll learn how to answer your own questions, and if you can't do that,at least you'll know how to ask good questions.
    along with the knowledge that you did try and figure things out yourself before having someone else fix your problems.
