Recently I had the opportunity to build a website for the folks over at Egg to Apples. The website was a little unique in that it provides an entry for businesses who want to work with an investor, similar to Shark Tank®. The competition is for beauty products and ideas. While the majority of the content is on a one-page, responsive layout, the homepage pulls from various custom post types for the Panel section and the Pre Screening Judges.
The user is required to upload a video of his pitch in a form, built with Contact Form 7. The video can be up to 2 GB large, so it is chunked using Plupload and a custom plugin that inserts the Plupload video upload code into the contact form. I hope to release the plugin at some point, if its desired or I need to reuse it.
Once the video is uploaded, it is sent off to Vimeo through the API and stored there. A cron job removes the video from the server to save disk space after it is uploaded.
I’ve attached some images of the website below. Or you can view it here.
