Video hosting with gamification

The Client

A private investor turned to Azoft with a startup idea of an entertainment web service for uploading author's videos.

The Scope

To develop an entertaining web service with double functionality. First, it has to provide an opportunity to upload and watch videos. Second, it has to be based on the game principle when users can guess the description of the author’s video and win money.

The Solution

The resulting web application is developed in a way that authors of the videos can not only upload their videos but also make money on the attempts of other users to guess a video description. At the same time, users can get a profit if they give a right answer.

The system is targeted to two categories of users: customers and administrators. Customers get access to the following features

  • Registration
  • Authorization
  • Video upload
  • Adding key phrase to the video description
  • Monitoring statistics for their own videos
  • Managing the personal financial account
  • Video guess
