I've googled this question in several versions but no luck in finding a definitive answer.
So the scenario is simple. I have a MySQL database that contains links to educational video resources on YouTube. The database contains details of the video content and the actual embeded code for the YouTube video as an <iframe> (e.g. $video1= <iframe>some_link_code_to_this_video</iframe>
So a user clicks a hyperlink from a list of video resources and this takes them to the relevant page to view the video. Is it possible to then action the content of $video1 in that page so the vidoe is ready to view and if so how?
