    Skills you need: PHP, MySQL, HTML, CSS, (JavaScript)
    Time to get there: depends on persistence and talent – but a year minimum.

    scratch or modules

    If you are starting from scratch and want to do it yourself, I'd think a year is on the low side. However if you just want a site up that includes those features there are easier ways to do it. Consider using a Wordpress site and look into plugins for register users. Similar kind of open source solutions exist in other platforms as well like joomla, vbb, etc. Depends if you just want it done or if you want to do it yourself for the experience.

    PHP is the one you need most, but learn html first. Before you can produce a site like youtube, it will take you about 3 years of learning, unless you are really fast at learning, then it would take 2 years.
    Rowsdower! has accused me of having mental problems, and the administrator allowed it. What a great forum huh?
