So I have a custom post type in WordPress that displays html5 videos. Is there a way I could automatically play the next video once it's over and still remain on the same post? I'm thinking something like this would be the perfect example.
Here's a link to what I have so far.
I have a custom post type called
nowthisearth_post and a custom field
nowthisearth_media_url that is pulling in the link to the MP4 file. Right now there are 6 posts and would like for it to proceed to the next one after the video ends. Here's what I have right now..
I started off using the
get_next_post(); function but it doesn't seem to work. I'm thinking maybe it would need to be converted into some sort of video playlist with thumbnails at the bottom.
<div class="container-fluid nowthis-header"> <div class="container" style="z-index:11;"> <div class="row"> <div class="col-12"> <?php $mrssfeed_url = get_post_meta(get_the_id(), 'nowthisearth_media_url', true);?> <video class="nowthis-video" style="" width="1280" height="720" autoplay="true" controls loop> <source src="<?php echo $mrssfeed_url ?>" type="video/mp4"> Your browser does not support the video tag. </video> </div> <div class="col-12"> <?php $next_post = get_next_post(); if ( is_a( $next_post , 'nowthisearth_post' ) ) : ?> <a href="<?php echo get_permalink( $next_post->ID ); ?>"><?php echo get_the_title( $next_post->ID ); ?></a> <?php endif; ?> </div> </div> </div>
