My site allows people to upload videos. Currently it sucks because people have to upload an image along with the video, and it never works anymore. It used to work but something broke and now they always show up as missing images and the videos don't play, so i have to delete each video that's uploaded.
I have a linux dedicated server that I would like for you to install ffmpeg. After that please modify the video system so that when users upload a video, they do not have to upload a thumbnail of the video. Also as I mentioned for some reason it stopped working properly, please fix this so it works again.
There are 4 or 5 other php pages that currently show videos based on thumbnail, these may or may not need to be modified with new dynamic link code. One example would be if you registered on my site, viewed my profile and clicked the link to view my Video Gallery. It shows the videos that have been uploaded by me, of course using thumbnails that have been uploaded.
The ffmpeg if I'm correct should allow for dynamic thumbnail generation. I'd prefer this, and also a reprogramming of the video upload system because even when the video system did work, most of the time the videos uploaded would have a thumbnail, description, but if you tried to watch it would be 1 second of nothing. I think the code in the video system is poorly written as was the majority of the code in my premade script.
