    Help Please Chris!

    Mike and me are trying to work something out on my new site...

    Some of the music videos have two speeds, which are different movie files, and we are confused about how to get it so php wont think they are different movies or php wont crash. Can you help us please.

    To extend...

    There will be two different speeds in one row, so it will be hard (or impossible?) to echo them seperatly I think.

    Btw, regarding the title, I'm sure it doesn't have to be Chris who answers

    Hmm - I don't see any PHP on that page? How exactly will PHP be used? Will it be used to create the pages dynamically?

    It's just my html.

    I'm converting it to PHP.

    We are trying to make it so there is 1000's of music videos on one page, and a few other php files for category pages. The probelm is that some music videos have more than one stream. We can't figure out how to make it so they don't appear as seperate videos, but allow the user to select the stream they want.

    Can't you just point to different streams based on what speed the person selects?

    Why not have the video links brought up based on title only, and when the user clicks on them they get a pop-up asking them to select connection speed? Then you just have DB fields with each video record, for the two different video files. If ya get me.

    Your telling mike how to do it...

    I told him what Mark said, just as an extra page, not a popup, but Mike said it was impossible.

    Sorry incka but I have never said that was impossible. In fact, I don't think I said anything was impossible, but anyway...

    I'm not sure I get what you mean Mark Could you explain please?

    Sure

    The videos are for songs, right?

    So each song will have a record in the database such as:

    id
    songtitle
    bandname
    albumname
    video_lofi (containing the lofi filename)
    video_hifi (containing the hifi filename)

    So, you will do a call for all the videos (or by whatever category criteria you want) such as "SELECT * FROM videos WHERE blah='blah' SORTBY songtitle ASC" ... or whatever

    The results will be links. These links will launch a window which will then call the contents of the song's DB record. From this, you will be able to create two links - one to the lofi version, another to the hifi version.

    I hope that explains it a little better

    Ah, I get ya

    Thanks Mark

    I wouldn't have seven different speeds for one song, as you mentioned before Sean. The way Mark has suggested will make it a lot more simpler, and still make it so you have two versions for different speeds.
