what are some of the video and photo providers we should support:

Live.com
picasaweb.google.com
Flickr.com

any others?  As a local resource I guess?

Well, for video we should definitely look into YouTube for searchable content. There are a few sites that host videos, but looking into storing in a local location on that server could be an option. I know that's where I'll store my pictures and videos.

Looking at the YouTube API, it would actually be easy for us to add :

- Simple youtube search and display results, that we could stream through silverlight
- Accept a username/password to retreive that user's specific videos (what he/she uploaded to YouTube)
- Let a user upload videos to YouTube directly through our GUI, using a cool uploader like http://www.codeplex.com/SilverlightFileUpld for instance

Unknowns: Can you use YouTube for private videos, only available to you? Or is everything that's uploaded on YouTube available publicly? If that's the case, then maybe YouTube becomes a "nice to have" rather than a good source to store a user's specific videos.

Thoughts?

Here's a .net API for flickr as well, if we choose to go down that route: http://flickrnet.codeplex.com/ . Briefly looking at the code, there's a lot of stuff in there so it must be fairly complete! Definitly worth looking in to.
