    So your wanting to upload 100 MB+ video's (or even 50 MB+) to some server over cellular, wait a few minuites, then download the file again with equal size over cellular onto your phone?! Thats going to take FOREVER

    Or, you wanting to encode the video on your phone, melting your phone and killing the battery?

    I see no market for this... People that know what encoding is would simply plug their phone into a computer and use their favorite encoding program

    I am only interested in speaking with people who want to help me with how it can work not with people who just say how it can't work.

    Thank you :)

    There is a lot more to application development than "having a server", is what the user was trying to say. Serverside applications are a bad idea for large video files in general - takes lots of useless transfer. I'll look into what can be done on phones though..

    Yes I know that there is more to it than "having a server"...I am a sysadmin with LAMP experience , so im familiar with what it takes to run an application (funny because its been my experience that programmers don't)

    In any event I was just saying that I have access to many servers (farms) if need be...

    All I lack is knowledge in programming language :\
