Allan is giving you outstanding advice. I recently created a closed membership "YouTube" for surgeons at http://www.surgeontoday.org and although I won't let you in the site unless you are a surgeon or create medical videos specifically, I went through the process of creating my own site from scratch.

So the first thing I would ask is this: do you want to just show videos, thus you may only need to show them through progressive downloads, or do you want to stream, which is a live event, and are you wanting to produce the streaming aspect of it? Progressive downloads are simpler, and mostly you have to concern yourself with the pipeline of the host and the type of video player you incorporate. Allan's recommendation is excellent; look into an OVP.

Second piece of advice is if you are constructing the site yourself, you will need a video player, and I use a Flash Player on my site using H.264 mpg4 codecs, although Flash Player does not play on iPhones and iPads. I constructed it before the war between Apple and Adobe. I will soon construct an HTML5 version of the player, to roll back to the Flash Player when it detects a browser that isn't HTML5 ready. So whatever service you hook up with, you might want to take that into consideration. Not everyone has HTML5.

All this being said, unless you are very handy at working with writing code I would go with the OVP.
