Hello Experts,

I don't know if i am asking this question the right way...
i know how to make websites in html, flash, php, etc.
i am not an expert doing this, i just do it for my own. :-)

So not long ago i enter into somebodys page and saw this nice script
this person had a YouTube combine with a combobox in which there
was a way to select video 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc. thru the same video player
this way all videos can be played in one single video player isntead of
having many videos in the same page.

How could i accomplish this into my own page?

As far as I know, you can create a custom Youtube player with a playlist, here is the demo of how to do it:

This looks nice, but i didn't get to see a demo on how this look like,
the one in the YT video guy, he doens't show the demo on how this look like.
i wonder if it have combobox or like tiny video frames on the site.

I download the script from www.php-help.ro
and it does play but when is time to select a new video or another video,
it does not change, it stay in the same video, then the page at the buttom
the left hand size corner it show an error. maybe something is wrong with
the script, cuz i did nothing just unzip and execute the index.html page.

Do you think i can re-open a new question base on this question?
cuz after checking this two advices, i see that is only for videos
base on YT scripts and all of that.

i would like to find something that it will do not just youtube but any
of my videos on my web hosting, like .flv videos and others.

Thank you

For that you have to write your own javascript.
Create a div tag for holding the youtube player.

Now onChange action of your dropdown, get the video id of the selected item and set it to the swf path of the flash ebded tag and do a rewrite.

Hi deepanjandas,

this doesn't make any sense to me unless you explain what you just mentioned.
