    okay, i have a folder on my web server that has .mov files that can stream to other computers that i have. i just go to the directory in a browser, and there is a list of the files. i can click on them, and they play in the browser. works great.

    but can i have a html file that can play them? or php would be even better? maybe be able to make some sort of playlist?

    thanks

    You can embed them on an HTML file for sure. Embedding on a PHP file wont make a difference to the streaming video because that PHP file will use HTML code to stream the movie. However, the PHP could become useful for writing a playlist. But that may be a bit complex for a beginner to PHP.

    Here's a link on how to embed a .mov file into an HTML page:

    well, here's what i have going on:

    i have a php site that has a list of the songs/movies on my server. it displays 'name', 'views', and 'url'. if you click on the url, it goes to another page that updates the database, and then to the url of the file. it plays in the browser.

    but to get back to the index, i have to press backspace, or hit the back button.

    is there a better way to do this?
