I have an idea for a site but I've hit a few roads blocks. It's basically a video sharing site, but I need to users to be able to buy credits, and reedem credits. The basic idea is you can purchase credits, and then donate them to a user to view their video. Than the person can reedem the credits for cash.

I don't have a clue how to get started, I am pretty sure I am going to go with the clipbucket script. Does anyone have any idea if a programmer would be able to build these features into the script?

Also, do you guys usually use local programmers, or say someone from odesk? I would feel much more comfortable with a local guy but not exactly sure how to find one.

First thing I would say is find out if there is a demand before you potentially waste your time. What need are you filling? Just because you build it does not mean they will come! I'm not saying there isn't a demand, or that its a bad idea, but I'd be damn sure there's a need before you put funds into building something.

That's a giant market that you may not have bandwidth and promo cash to compete with. But don't let me deter you... there's tons of video cms clones out there that do this with a couple simple mods... google it. ;)

It's a niche site, as far as I know it's the only one like it. Yea I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with clipbucket. It's free. On a side note though, most web hosting companies don't allow video sharing sites. I have a few websites with hostgator, and they don't allow it so I will be going with a diff company for it.
