    Hello! First, let me tell you I love your plugins!

    I’m creating a social media website and I’m wondering if I should allow the members to upload videos and if I do, how long those videos should be. My disk space on A2 hosting is 25gb and the cloud traffic is unlimited. I hope that my website will have 50,000 active members +, and I’m wondering if videos would clog the traffic or not and if not, then how long should they be for the optimal performance of the website?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Kreatsya,
    Thank you for using our plugins.

    If you are going for video upload storage and distributions will have a huge impact on your visitors. If possible, you should offload it for better performance.

    For a community of 50,000 active members, 25GB will not be sufficient. If you a really need users to upload videos, using a cloud storage is suggested.

    For smaller communities, local upload will work well too.

    PS:- Our cloud storage plugin will be available by the end of this month.

    Thanks, Brajesh, that’s what I thought. I’d be sure to check your plugin when it comes out.
