    $_POST help

    Hey everyone,

    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

    test.php
    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
      <head>
        
      </head>
      <body>
    
    <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>
      </video>
    
      </body>
    </html>
    and here is the html.

    hello.html
    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
      <head>
      
      </head>
      <body>
    
    <form action="test.php" method="post">
    URL:<input type="url" name="test" />
    <input type="submit" value="Play" />
    </form>
    
      </body>
    </html>
    I hope that you guys can see what I am trying to do through this code.

    thanks alot!

    Other than not putting quotes around the src attribute of your video tag.....I don't see anything wrong.
    I've switched careers...
    I'm NO LONGER a scientist,
    but now a web developer...
    awesome.

    Some issues with using <video>.

    I haven't looked into whether they have been resolved yet.

    thanks

    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
    Code:
    src="<?php echo $_POST["test"]; ?>"
    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.

    thanks again!

    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.
