Is there a way to embed the login credential to an external site like youTube into the hyperlink that takes you to youTube, or any other server? This way the user does not get stopped by security at the external site.

I don't think you want to give away the data on your Youtube account, because otherwise you would be flooded with revealing videos.

You are right. I was merely using it as example of playing a file on another server or the same server, but a different project. Can creditals be past on in the button being clicked to link to the video contained in another project. (It is a websiteX5 site as well.)

Hello Gregory

Whether or not you can add pieces of code to an URL to auto-perform a login is up to the service you're linking to and not the link website you're currently on itself

In the case of WebSite X5, websites made with the software do not allow for this possibility, so your user will still need to log in manually after they get redirected to a protected page

I remain available here

Thank you

Stefano, is there one partular file or group of files I can grab from my first project and copy it to the second project so that when the second project site gets uploaded, the registered users are in both sites.

This became an issue when the 1 GB video buggered up my first site. Until I got it sorted it out, I removed it from my first project and created a new project just for the video.

But frankly, if I make changes to the first project and upload files back to the website, if the video file has to load, it takes about 20 minutes. If the video is in it own project, the updates to the first project fly. The whole site can upload in seconds, not minutes. So there is some efficiency to keeping it segregated from the first project, other than the duel registration and the having to login into two sites rather than one on the vistor side.

Hello Gregory

As of now, there is no way to sync manually registered users from one project to another but to duplicate the entire project

This can only be done for Automatically registered users by duplicating the Database table and changing the table name to match the new project's ID.

As of now, I'm afraid that there is simply no other way to get around this

About the video instead, I would definitely recommend uploading big files such as this directly onto the server separately, and then linking them in the project

This will make the management of the project much faster and lighter

I remain available here if you have any other question

Stefano

I like the idea of manual linking. Do you have some instructions on how to do that?

...as I have already reported to you, ... I do not recommend the presence of an extremely heavy video on your server / site, it could make it impractical...
... however it is all said in the Guide:
>> Step 4 - Pages > Video/Audio Object > Commands in the General section:
>> >> Internet file: if you select this option, enter the URL address where the video or audio file is located on the Internet.

Very simple...
1. Create a folder via Filezilla e.g. "videos".
2. upload the video via Filezilla into the folder videos
3. in WSX5 at the object "Video/Audio" at the path "URL or file in the internet" take the path e.g. https://www.yourdomain.de/videos/name_video.mp4
