I'm looking to start a video sharing site. And have been trying to decide on video sharing software/scripts.
I've looked at clipbucket and phpmotion so far.
What do you think of those two scripts?
Which one would you go for? If you know of any other scripts out there, post them here.
I'd go with clipbucket. I've used it for a video sharing site before. Keep in mind though that it's gonna cost some good amount of money to host a video site.
They use a lot of ram. disk space and bandwidth. I had to shut mine down because I couldn't afford 2 dedicated servers at the time.
I had it on shared hosting as I wasn't expecting it to grow so fast, but it did. Got 500 unique visitors a day within 2 weeks of being online.

Another vote for clip bucket. They also did have a paid template that would match up with youtube's design.
Sorry but I don't know about both scripts but my suggestion is if readymade script gives you robust, scalable, user and search engine friendly, SEO friendly, responsive and unique design, taking less time to load, 100% copyright and ownership of design, images and database then purchase it otherwise custom development solution is best option to get lifetime sustainable profitable business. I have checked good reviews of NCrypted Technologies to get customized Youtube Clone. I know very well that custom development solution is more expensive but think about future and one more thing is that yet I haven't seen that any big clone players are using readymade scripts.
I choose ClipBucket after testing AVS (ClipShare), PHP Motion and ClipBucket. ClipBucket is the only opensource and there are regular updates, I have read on the forums about the new version releasing in May (2016). They have cut the prices of their products and introduced new premium Packages which makes it very affordable. AVS and ClipShare are the same script now and they are the second best, They have good plugins and support but ClipBucket have a lot more to offer in premium plugins.
