The last iphone app a company I have worked with dropped about a half million for their iphone app.
They had it done in South America and your 20K (USD?) would be eaten up in about 2 to 4 trips to see the developers.
You might want to think about your idea as there are alternatives to YouTube already plus you have other than iPhone users out there.
I want to develop my own website of video hosting similar to YouTube, Vimeo, where it will be relying on (user generated content).
I don't know how to approach this project, whom to go to. Should I go for a freelancer, or an established company specialized in developing softwares and websites.
I am only putting down 20k for this website.
My objective is not to generate money as much as to find an alternative of YouTube.
My questions are:
Do you think 20k is enough? as a start
Do you think I should approach companies or freelancer?
Also I am developing an iphone app for this website as well.
Please include references to programmers and developers if you have anything in mind.
