Dynamically change video URLs [message #180555] Tue, 26 February 2013 03:26 Go to next message

I am new to PHP and Javascript, but I need to develop a website that hosts video files.

I want to have one page that lists all the video with a thumbnail, title (which is clickable), and short description. But, I'm confused as to how I would make each link dynamically direct to the correct video URL/file (using the video.js HTML5 player).

And I would like the video URLs to be placed in an external file and referenced in each link.

Is it possible to do this using PHP and Javascript? If so, can I please get help?

If you have a concrete question to PHP code you can ask us.

But there is no "how to teach programming in 10 lines".

I am sure if you produce some html to display at least one link (not
dynamic) the folks here might be able to help you do the same with PHP.
But you need to take the first step.

What he's saying is this is user-to-user help. If you have a specific
question about PHP, this is the place to ask. If you aren't sure
whether you need html, javascript, php or something else, you have more
basic problems this newsgroup won't be able to help you with.

You need to get a basic understanding of the technologies involved and
what gets done where. Then figure out what you need to do and try it
out. If it comes down to a specific PHP problem you've tried to resolve
but can't, then come back here.

P.S. Please quote the relevant part(s) of the message you are replying
to. The majority of the active users here use usenet readers, not
google groups and the previous message may or may not be available.

Thanks.

Merely looking for help/guidance in achieving the task I want, from developers who know the language and what they're doing...that's all. But, the previous two posts answered my question. I've looked elsewhere.
