View Full Version : What language for dynamic?

I am looking into adding a video section to a site and well I wish for the videos to update themselves and change from video to video.
Say about 6 videos in a row and then it would change to another 6 videos. Like on the youtube home page wher they videos change.

I am unsure exactly what language I should use. Javascript or DHTML?.
Any help would be fantastic.

PHP or any server side language is what you are talking about that can randomly change or update the content. Javascript (DHTML is not a language just a concept of using Javascript with HTML to make it Dynamic) only works on the client side (i.e. the browser) and cannot pull things from a database or update from a list of new entries without the aid of PHP or ASP or Ruby, etc.

I don't know what is best for you because I don't know what your host supports or what kind of programming experience you may have.
