    Hi Everyone, I am creating a very specific website. It would be nice if I was able ot allow people to upload thier own pics and vids. (I'm not trying to recreate a You Tube or anything so don't worry)

    I am ussing Dreaweaver 8 to build my site. Does anyone know how I could put in this language or even where to start to put this feature on my site?

    The vids and pics would also need ot be shown in a thmbnail type format on my site.

    Thanks, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You'll need to use PHP/MySQL for this type of thing.

    There are many tutorials on uploading photos and videos,
    by searching Google. You might even want to find a free
    script that sort of already does what you want.

    This is an advanced deal ... so we can help you solve some
    script problems, but nobody has the time to make a script
    for you. Writing something from scratch is very time consuming.

    You'll use notepad for all of your PHP coding, or the text editor
    on Dreamweaver. You upload your scripts for testing, because they
    won't run on your computer unless you have your own server.

    Thanks mlseim,

    I am setting up my computer as a server this week and am getting all of the required programs to run php and MySql, etc.

    I found all kinds of information on how to upload vids into Dreamweaver but had a hard itme finding a tutorail on how to "let people upload thier own vids and pics" or even add thier own content.

    I know creating the algorithms and PHP language form scratch is gong to be tough.. so if anyone can refer me to any good sites that would be great!

    Have a good one.
