Improve UI/UX & functionality of (5-level) category search function on my website

I have a video website. The differentiation is that they are short clips, also that you may discover targeted content quickly and effectively. We do this by allowing videos only under 3 minutes, but more importantly, with a (5-level) categorization system. When posting videos, users define the category of their video with 5 levels of granularity.

For example

Level 1 - Sports

Level 2 - Basketball

Level 3 - Offense

Level 4 - Ball Handling

Level 5 - Cross-over

This way, when a user is looking for specifically this skill in a search, they will not get irrelevant results and be able to find their specific target content quickly and fully.

The current function works, it is just not optimized and on a level fit to compete in the market effectively. I need you to bring it up to speed and be professional, user friendly and viable, and a better solution than the competition. It also does not have a clean and modern looking UI, that could use a better plug in or template to be used.

Skills that would help is previous experience building web applications that involve search, querying, database, crm, converting excel data to web based, online databases, enterprise databases, etc. In addition, good web design & UI/UX expertise.

The upload process (where categorization is selected & defined) & the search process where the user finds the categories/content they are looking for are tied together, because the categories the uploaders assign to their videos is the search results that are going to come up for users looking for that category. It is like crowdsourcing using categorized search results, instead of the algorithm for search results Google brings up.

If this is a type of project you have expertise in, and can deliver a smile to the face of the users looking to learn in a quick and effective manner, I am looking for you! Let's talk.

Advanced Search Area:

To Fix:

- After selecting to search the selected categories, it takes many seconds to recheck the selected categories, which looks unprofessional

- There are duplicate categories that occur, possibly due to bug in the code, or due to there being no safeguards that categories are not added twice, when videos are being uploaded

- Selecting multiple categories function and population of categories in a sub level should be improved and bugs identified throughout the entire UX & process

- The results should be optimized & bugs removed

Upload area (As shown in picture) (must be signed in):

[login to view URL]

This is where the selection of categories occurs with the uploader (user). The website is driven by user-generated content. The quality of categories that are available in search is dependent upon quality of categorization during upload, as well as administrative management of categories.

- Steps in upload and categorization process: Upload video, select beginning and end time of clip, name clip, add description, choose option to monetize, add 5 levels of categorization, and post.

Based on performance, I may have additional projects for areas to improve on the website.
