php video upload and play different formats

Recommended Posts

Hi, we are developing a video upload website. Client will upload videos into different formats (avi,mp4,flv etc). Video upload to server by not playing. Only mp4 playing avi etc not playing. How can i play all video formats in php. Or we want to convert all video to mp4 at the time of upload using ffmpeg.

Please let me know a solution, we are using dedicated server fr this.

Video playback requires support from the browser. I suggest converting uploads to one standard format.


Install ffmpeg on your server, then either run the program from your PHP code manually, like

`ffmpeg $various_arguments_here`;
or use something like PHP-FFMpeg.

The time to upload depends on the user's connection speed and your server's connection speed.

The time to convert depends on how powerful your server is and how busy it is running other tasks.


The two are not related.
