You bring up some interesting points, Veign. I'd love to try another way of doing this, but keep in mind that it is very important that I am familiar with Wordpress. My partner is also familiar with it, and he knows even less about computers and programming than I do.
i don't want a custom website, because I want to have some kind of gui type backend that I can mess around with. I don't want to get into php code, or java, or stuff like that. I can handle css and html to style things, but that's it. So what are my other options?
And, really, I don't understand why you say wordpress can't do this. I trust you, since you know more about it, but I don't get it. I mean, we have plugins like Nextgen Gallery, which can do all sorts of cool things with images and image galleries. You can stick it anywhere on a page or post. Why can't the same thing be built for a video gallery?
