Camaro5FestIII - Ideas for GoPro and other videocamera file sharing

I've got a question for any IT guys out there.

How difficult would it be to have an ftp server set up so that any/everyone with a GoPro or other digitial video camera can upload their raw video footage from the Fest and share it with the Camaro5 video editing community?

My thoughts are, I don't think every Camaro5 member should have access, because that would mean the server would have to have some SERIOUS bandwidth allocated. But maybe give out the login and PW for anyone that requests it that either has stuff to upload, or has shown they know their stuff when it comes to video editing.

I can already forsee that the server would have to have at LEAST a terabyte storage capacity, but that doesn't seem like it's too unreasonable now-a-days.

And I think organization could be done pretty easily. Just create a set of folders on the main drive for each day of the Fest (and each day of the caravans both before and after). And nested in each one of those, there could be separate folders for each event that was going on that day.

For example:

Code:
ftp://ftp.camaro5.com/2012-08-03/Autocross_Session_1
And then each member that uploads a file just name the file with their username and a sequential number to indicate their run if they made multiple passes during the particular event:

CamaroSkooter_1.mp4
CamaroSkooter_2.mp4

Or, if you've got multiple cameras on your car, you could label them:

CamaroSkooter_1_back.mp4
CamaroSkooter_1_ahead.mp4
CamaroSkooter_1_driver.mp4
CamaroSkooter_1_rear_suspension.mp4

And so on and so forth.

I don't know that the ftp site HAS to be through Camaro5's website; I was just using that as an example. But regardless, how difficult would it be to set something like this up?

I know that last year I tried to coordinate with CamaroSpike to share my raw GoPro video footage that I took during the Fest with him, and it meant FedEx'ing an external hard drive back and forth, which was a real pain in the rear. With an ftp server, this would be a much simpler process, and it would mean multiple people could share their video and potentially have some really wicked YouTube videos created to share amongst the community.

Thoughts?

Our club website (which is still under construction) came with unlimited bandwidth and space (supposedly). I can create an ftp site for storing all the C5Fest footage.

You may want to make sure of that prior to committing. I can see this using up a LOT of bandwidth if the login is not limited to just people who will actually upload files or use the footage for video editing.

Remember, Camaro5 has over 64,000 registered members...

I'm looking at the control panel for my site, and it says I've used 1.3 MB of Unlimited on both BW and space.

I'm not doubting you at all. I just want you to be aware of just how much bandwidth this could potentially use up.

Just one day's worth of raw video that I took at C5Fest2 is roughly 50GB in size... (I'll have to double-check that once I get home)
