upload video files to server sent by email

5+ Year Member

Msg#: 4526132 posted 6:27 pm on Dec 8, 2012 (gmt 0)


I have a site where people can record videos and also upload videos.

All works well. A new feature I have to implement is allow people to send the videos by email to any specific or secret email address with video attachment.

So once the person sends the video in attachment, I need the details on how can I have my php open that email message and take the attached video and upload it to my server?

Please help with basic details also.

Thanks a lot.

If you use cPanel, there is the option under Forwarders to pipe emails to a (PHP/Perl) program. Is this the sort of thing you are referring to?
