Best platform for self-hosted video viewing on a website?
If somebody wanted to start a website that displays a handful of new videos each day, what kind of platform should they start with? Wordpress?
The plan is to have each day - have 5 new videos. If you click on a video, you can choose next or back to see the videos in line, or you can click 'random' to view a random video.
It seems simple on the surface, but when you start thinking about doing it manually with HTML, you can see how it will start to get complicated with a couple of hundred or thousand videos.
Also, it has to be optmized for mobile as well.
Should I just start hand building this site with multiple html files for each video page, and then hand link all the pages together? I was thinking of created a folder for each page, and then place the .html file and the video in each folder.
not sure how I would do the random script.
Any input or advice would be greatly appreciated!!
