Upload and Store video using PHP

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to create display upload and store video using PHP.


A PHP script can be used with a HTML form to allow users to upload files to the server. Initially files are uploaded into a temporary directory and then relocated to a target destination by a PHP script.


Step 1 :- Create table in database.


CREATE TABLE `elevenstech`.`videos` ( `id` INT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT , `title` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL , `video_path` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL , PRIMARY KEY (`id`)) ENGINE = InnoDB;


Step 2 :- Create Video Upload Page (index.php).


<form method="post" action="" enctype='multipart/form-data'>
      <input type='file' name='video' class="form-control" /><br>
      <input type='submit' class="btn btn-primary" value='Upload' name='upload_video'>


Step 3 :- Create connection to the database (index.php).


<?php $con = mysqli_connect('localhost','root','','elevenstech'); ?>


Step 4 :- Create Upload video folder to store videos



Step 5 :- Write Php code to upload video (index.php).



        $maxsize = 5242880;
        $title = $_FILES['video']['name'];
        $image_upload1 = @end(explode('.', $title)); // get the extension 
        $videoFileType = strtolower($image_upload1);
        $new_image_upload = time().'.'.$videoFileType; // concat the extension to another name
        $image_upload_path = 'upload/'.$new_image_upload; // set folder path here to store video

        $extensions_arr = array("avi","3gp","mpeg","mov","mp4");

        if( in_array($videoFileType,$extensions_arr) ){
            if( $_FILES['video']['size'] >= $maxsize)     
                echo "File size should be less than 5MB";
                if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['video']['tmp_name'], $image_upload_path))
                    // insert query here
                    $query = "INSERT INTO videos(title,video_path) VALUES('".$title."','".$new_image_upload."')";
                    echo "Upload successfully.";
          echo "You are uploading wrong file.";



Step 6 :- List uploaded videos.


      $sql = mysqli_query($con, "SELECT * FROM videos ORDER BY id DESC");
      while($row = mysqli_fetch_assoc($sql))
             echo "<div>";
             echo "<video src='upload/".$row['video_path']."' controls width='320px' height='200px' >";
             echo "</div>";
             echo "<p>".$row['title']."</p><br>";


Hope this will help our developers.
