I just propose this... I am waiting feedbacks
WPES (WP External Storage) is project that will allow bloggers to use other
kind of storage for upload files (images, videos, audio) with an easy
The planed build-in drivers are the Amazon S3, FTP, Picasa (for pictures),
YouTube (for videos), also another important part is define an API to add in
the future other storage.
It will be as the WP upload box, but instead of upload files to the server
it will do to another storage, then when it is upload it will generate the
HTML and XML (rss and atom) to integrate it with the entry. This will be
possible with the great PHP Stream Abstraction available since PHP 4.3.2.
The greater benefit is that WP user will be able to have podcast and their
video or audio will be hosted on other server, really useful to offload
traffic of blogs with huge audience.
Another utility is the backup of files, useful for don't lose data or "easy"
migration of hosting, because the files will be on another server restore it
(or link it) is easy.
