I've been trying to create an application where an input through a form would change the src of an video.
Here is the code
and here is the html.
<video width="640" height="360" src=<?php echo $_POST["test"]; ?> controls autoplay>
<p> Try this page in Safari 4! Or you can <a href="http://www.youtube.com/demo/google_main.mp4">download the video</a> instead.</p>
I hope that you guys can see what I am trying to do through this code.
<form action="test.php" method="post">
URL:<input type="url" name="test" />
<input type="submit" value="Play" />
Other than not putting quotes around the src attribute of your video tag.....I don't see anything wrong.
Some issues with using <video>.
I haven't looked into whether they have been resolved yet.
thank you for the quick replies. I know I forgot the quotes, but I tried it with them and it didn't make a difference. I put the quotes here if thats right
And tirna, what kind of problems are going on with the <video> tag? I think I read about html5 problems, but I couldn't find any particular problem specifically for the video tag.
src="<?php echo $_POST["test"]; ?>"
the issues with <video> are described in the link I posted.
I don't know what error messages you are getting or how exactly <video> isn't working for you, so the issues may or may not be applicable to your case.
