I have been struggling with this for quite some time and I feel as if this should not be such a difficult task to achieve.
What basically happens on my site is that each user is able to stream a video of their own. The streamed videos all come from a single source link on the server, with the final part of the video link being the current username.
I have read about child themes and user fields ,etc.
I would however like to know if a) There is a way to customize the User page with HTML to embed a video player that can play a users video or b) create a new page with menu link for all new users like “My Video” and embed the player on this page with the username used as the last part of the video link.
Thanks in advance for your response and assistance.
To your question a) & b)
yes you can code a custom (user) profile page. And yes you can use a player on it.
But all depends of the number of videos attributed to each user, how many user will use this, the config of your server and of course your personnal knowledge about templating BP and php coding.
Also, embeding hosted videos on profiles from official WP providers is very very easy – and powerfull. Doing the same from your own server is a bit more delicate to handle. https://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds
If you have questions, please ask only one by topic and try to be very specific and detailed.
what you want to do
what you already did – give example or pastebin your code
and what you think should work and doesn’t.
thank you !
