I have searched, promise! great site btw.
I work for a small video production company and we often post work in progress to our website for clients to check out and comment on. I do this by encoding a video, uploading to our server and creating a static page, embedding the video in a player on the page, it's a fairly laborious and long winded process I'm sure you'll agree.
I would like to streamline this process, I have set up my video encoder to automatically ftp my files to a folder on my server and I would like to create a script that will build pages based on the contents of that folder eg, If I upload a file called dave.flv I could then go to a page called www.dave.com/dave and see a web page with the movie title wrapped in a h1 at the top, the date it was uploaded and the video.
My limited experiencetells me php can help here, any pointers would be massively appreciated.
