I'm looking for a host personal use, here are the details:
5000 mb web space
100 GB bandwith
cpanel cron jobs
codecs istalled, like xvid, mpeg4, etc (and h.264 would be good too, but it is not a problem if is not installed)
max file size limit about 1,6-2 gb/file
allowed htaccess and php.ini (i don't like script time outs, with about 10 s max script running time, etc)
The main purpose would be to hardcode subtitles to videos, so i can't lower the max file size, sorry. But it would be for personal use only, so not will be a hardware killer.
If i can't add subtitles with mencoder, i'm not interested in your hosting, so this should work:
Budget:3-5 $-s/month (for 3 i can get cirtexhosting)
$encode_cmd="$mencoderPath -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=460 -sub /home/user32/public_html/familytrip.srt -o $destFile $srcFile";
I can give out 20 $ for a vps too, but in this case, i need about 40 Gb space and 150-200 gb bandwidth (upgradeable just in case)
For vps, i need the functions mentioned before, but in that case i would like to use torrent client on that too (for personal use of course - max 3 torrent running at a time)!
And of course a little help in the beginning, because i never used vps before (but i found a lot of tutorials on the web).
