    How can my users upload a video to my site - what do I use?

    Hi there,

    I run a marketplace and I'd like my users to upload a video upon creating a listing which then displays on their listing page to the public.

    What's the best way to do this? I tried Uploadify but it doesn't seem to be working for videos larger than 10MB, I need a 50MB limit.

    Also, is there a way to allow users to OPTIONALLY upload video using their YouTube video link, for example, they fill in their YouTube video URL which then displays the video on the public listing page?

    Thank you so much, I'm at wits end with this!

    Thanks for the answers. Zabi, what do you mean you would suggest YouTube. Can you elaborate, is there a piece of software I can use to allow my user's to use their YouTube links to then display their video on my website?

    most commonly used method is copy, paste embed code from youtube. yes there are ready made scripts that will even work with just link,

    Yeah, copy their video URL and paste it onto our site. Do you know any of these ready made scripts?

    Our system is coded in PHP. I took a look at EasyBox, not sure that's quite that same though.

    Ideally, I'd like my users to paste their YouTube video URL during the auction/listing creation process, which will then appear on their auction/listing page.

    :/
