Interesting thread title huh? haha..

I'm curious and haven't been able to locate the right answer, or maybe I have and don't know it. But what is the right name for media sites like iTunes and Napster?

I'm looking for something that's either a similar software I can buy to make my version of those sites or a clone software but I don't know what those sites are called as far as how to Google it goes.

I know if I want a dating site script or clone I can Google that. I've tried iTunes clone but I don't really want to sell mp3 files. I want to sell videos and pictures mainly.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks.

Well, it's not a site. Sure, it's hosted via servers, but it's actually a piece of software. As far as naming it, well it's a media store.

How could you set up one like it? Well, ink some deals with popular media companies and purchase the rights to sell their media. Then, hire a programmer if you can't build the app yourself and then promote it. It also helps if you have the world's most popular media players. But that takes even more R&D.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Welcome to Mac-Forums

Like cwa107 says it's gonna take alot of time to setup such a site. Also the cost of making one and buying the rights etc is going to cost a small-medium fortune.
