Hello,

I am currently allowing users to upload videos via php $_FILES[][] and then converting them using ffmpeg.

I am wondering if there is a more efficient way to do this than using php. I have read that ajax might be useful (that's what vimeo uses). Could anyone point me in the right direction?

Also, I have googled it. I'm having trouble finding anything that combines ajax with php/ffmpeg to convert.

thanks in advance,
megachip

AJAX isn't a specific coding language, now i don't know how familiar you are with AJAX, it is, bluntly put, a php script that can get executed with java commands like onsubmit, onchange etc.
every time a javascript call occurs, a php script can be executed without having to reload the page.

I'm no expert in video uploading, quite the contrary, but if you just look up the basics of AJAX, i'm sure you'll get a long way
