My question yesterday was too broad on this subject, so I will be specific:
I teach music classes and at the end of the class, we record several short (30 second-3 minute) videos for the parts people are learning. Up until now, I have directly uploaded all those videos to my network attached storage (NAS). My students have access there. That works great for me, but it is difficult for the students because they need to download each video manually and then play from their computer.
Our school has a WordPress site, and I want to be able to send students to a password protected page where they log in and are presented with several folders (a folder for each song). When they open the folder, it takes them to a page that displays all the videos and the users can click on the video and play them directly from the browser.
I downloaded the WordPress iPhone app and tried to:
- create a page.
- Pick the videos from the phone
- Upload to the page
This sort of works, but every other video is giving me an upload error (IE I think they are too big and time out) and it is very time consuming.
Part of the issue is how WordPress handles uploaded media in the library-since there is no subfolder, I don't see how to easily batch upload to specific pages.
I downloaded "Media File Manager", but that doesn't work because you have to first upload the files into the library and then move the files manually into the subfolders.
So there are the details. Now my question:
Is there a way to:
- Ppload individual videos into sub-folders in the upload folder (I can create the sub-folders with my FTP) (I already know how to do this.)
- Have individual pages that treat those subfolders as separate galleries.
- Have the page display all items in the gallery (as playable videos).
