Hi all, I need a code that i want to set an anchor tag to flash file , Bcz i want to count the clicks on the flash file and want to save into my DB . Is there any way for that ? I dnt need getURL(); It will take user to the page directly .
Hi tiggsy, Thank you for reply, I have a site , One of my customers give their flash adds to me, SO in this case i want to send report to them how many users clicks their add , They were giving flash file which includes their URL, Some other gives me a GIF image, thats not a problem , Simply i added a HREF tag to that image and count the clicks to MySql DB . When going to flash i cant able to do that . Is there any way to give external link to flash object .
Set up a page (maybe showvideo.php). I've used table name visitcount and field name visits for storing the counts, doubtless you use a different name.
$video = $_GET['v'];
//put your increment code here, this is an example
include "includes/mysql-connect.inc"; //if you haven't already connected to database
$query = "update visitcount set visits=visits+1 where video='$video'";
$result = mysql_query($query);
<!-- all your regular stuff for the head section -->
//put your embed code here. use $video where the name of the video goes
//(2 places in many embed codes, depends which one you are using)
//also ensure the height and width are set to the correct values - again, possibly in 2 places
echo "<object classid=\"clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000\"
width=\"320\" height=\"400\" >
<param name=\"movie\" value=\"[B]$video[/B]\">
<param name=\"quality\" value=\"high\">
<param name=\"play\" value=\"true\">
<param name=\"LOOP\" value=\"false\">
<embed src=\"[B]$video[/B]\" width=\"320\" height=\"400\" play=\"true\" loop=\"false\" quality=\"high\" pluginspage=\"http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer\"
Then, instead of linking direct to the video ("filename.swf") link to showvideo.php?v=filename.swf
I've just noticed that you're wanting to use this for "adds" - you do mean advertisements? If so, you might want to do something else, which is use a redirect code instead of the url it's going to. Maybe use one generated by eg. bit.ly or one of the other services that keep stats on clickthroughs. This would be a LOT easier
