Little Advice

Hey Everybody,

I'm working on a site that I can upload my videos to and allow others to download them (as long as they are registered), I have my layout I just need to get into the coding but i'm not sure how I should go about making my tables for my database. In specific I don't know how I would do my video database should i have the video in the database as a LONGBLOB or is there a better way to handle the video. I would like to upload the video from a page that only I can access when logged on.

I should move this... but... whatever.

Don't store your files in the database.  It's inefficient.  Create a directory on the server for your videos and store them there.  In the database, store records referring to the name and location of the files you're storing.
