Default GARS Video Support?

Hey Geek,

Been a while since I've been around. I've been working for a video startup website so I've had little time to work on my own projects. I'm just getting back into it and have been researching out-of-box video websites. I've come to the conclusion that they all are lame, too much like youtube, have horrible support and limited features.

So I came back to vbulletin in hopes that someone might be trying to tackle video. And there are a couple, but they have a long ways to go.

I think GARS naturally lends itself to video as you already have custom fields, custom modules, robust ratings, multiple pages, etc.

You can even utilize it to embed video.

However, there is no way to actually upload video, get it transcode to flash and have it work on a custom player.

I know video handling video isn't always that easy and that it takes more resources than usual to transcode files and serve.

It would be great to see the next version of GARS support video. You already have a head start, if you added video support you'd blow the competition out of the water.

PS, Youtube has a new API that allows people to upload to Youtube via your site. Maybe that's a good 1st step...

I would like to see GARS with video support, especially Flash video. It would be very useful for my tutorial site.
