Few video-related questions:
- Are there Discourse forums that are Reddit-style where posts are mostly about video sharing?
- What’s the best video hosting service to use that will be easy for the users while still giving us control over data (so we can manage the archives better)?
- We have a native iOS and Android app where the videos are viewable for playback (and stored in AWS). This is where the videos are generated and what we want users to share so the best case scenario is to allow users to download it on their phone and have a direct post to our forum. What’s the best way to do this?
We want to create a category of “Share your funny videos” and ask our users to submit and vote but since Discourse is not a video-hosting solution, some users will upload to YouTube, Vimeo, Dropbox, Facebook, etc. and put links. This will cause issues and poor user experience because the videos are everywhere and the posts will not be consistent - some preview, some aren’t onebox, etc. We also don’t expect users to understand using HTML tags. Any tips?
New to Discourse. Thanks a lot!
