Thanks guys, that is a lot of input.

How is the support of OTP for multimedia content manipulation, transcoding
etc? Or you advice to do it at the C level and communicate it to Erlang?

Also, if someone has already invented the wheel of how good Erlang is
compared to PHP, please share it with us.

We would like to have a mega site purely on Erlang and C.

Thank you.
