can i play dynamic Video?

Im trying to create a video lessons page for a client, shes an artist and wishes to be able to have video lessons she has created on her website. Now it needs to be dynamic and work just like a results and details page as if using an Image bit this will be using video. I know i will need a Plugin to do this as was thinking of usng WebStunnings video player. Or if possible the new html 5 <video></video> tags nut again would this be possible? Once i have the plugin in place how do i get to work? ive tried binding the Video tag etc but nothing seems ti work. I have added the details page for you to view, pls help as im finding this very difficult.

you would need to use a plugin for showing the video.

It would probably be best to set up the video plugin on the details page.

in the plugin, where you spicy the file name of the video, you can use the recordset instead.

If you need one on one help setting this up, we can help you through a premiere support appointment:

is the video located in the same folder as the details page?

that will only work if they are in the same folder. if they are not in the same folder, you need to add the path.

say for example that the details page is at the root of the site:
http://www.mysite.com/details.php

and the videos are stored in a subfolder named videos:
http://www.mysite.com/videos/video1.mp4

the source for the video:
<source src="<?php echo $row_WADAvideolessons['Video']; ?>" type="video/mp4">

would need to include the folder name:
<source src="/videos/<?php echo $row_WADAvideolessons['Video']; ?>" type="video/mp4">
