I would say either use the YouTube Module (and modify it) and host the files on YouTube or look at the Gallery Module as it pulls images from a specified directory and will show you the setup for adding the correct db and cms fields to your HomePage type. Hope this make sense

thanks for your reply
Yes you are correct it does make sense but the problem is when i try to read all the video the video is not getting played as we need specific code to play a video and also we need to change the video format into flv so tht it can be viewed in pages

I believe flash version 9 can use an external .mp4 file this is the standard for vodcasting I have used [url=http://jquery.lukelutman.com/plugins/flash]Jquery Flash Plugin[/url] to generate the embed tags and load a flash player I wrote in actionscript basically just loads/plays the movie via flashvars

$(function(){
$('#vodcast').flash(
{
src: 'website/flash/vodcast_player.swf',
width: 240,
height: 205,
flashvars: { src: 'somefile.mp4' },
       wmode: 'transparent'
},
{ version: 9 }
);
});

You can see an example [url=http://www.optimalessentials.com/vodcasts/]here[/url] the whole vodcasts are controlled in the backend by silverstripe so this is possible!

1) Create a flash file that will load and external .mp4 file via flashvars using flash 9.0 AS3 Netstream

2) Download [url=http://jquery.lukelutman.com/plugins/flash]jquery.flash.js[/url]

4) Create your video page type and a holder page type

VodcastPage.php

class VodcastPage extends Page
{
   static $db = array(
      'Episode' => 'Text',
      'Date' => 'Date',
      'Summary' => 'HTMLText',
      'RunningTime' => 'Time'
      /*'Archive' => 'Boolean'*/
   );
   
   static $has_one = array('MP4'=>'File');
   

   
   function getCMSFields()
   {
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
      
      // remove default fields.
      $fields->removeFieldFromTab('Root.Content.Main', 'Title');
      $fields->removeFieldFromTab('Root.Content.Main', 'MenuTitle');
      $fields->removeFieldFromTab('Root.Content.Main', 'Content');
      
      $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new TextField('Episode'));
      $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new TextField('Title', 'Title'));
      $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new TextField('MenuTitle', 'Menu Title'));
      $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new CalendarDateField('Date', 'Date'));
      
      $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new TextField('RunningTime', 'Running Time (HH:MM:SS)'));
      
      
      $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new HTMLEditorField('Summary', 'Summary'));
      
      // file upload
      $vodfile = new FileIFrameField('MP4', 'Upload MP4 File (.m4v)', NULL, NULL, NULL, 'vodcasts');

      $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", $vodfile);
         
      return $fields;
}
   
   function Mp4File()
   {
      $file = DataObject::get('File', "`ID` = '{$this->MP4ID}'");
      if($file) {
         return $file->First();
      }
   }
   
   function Mp4Download()
   {
      $file = self::Mp4File();
      header("Expires: Mon, 26 Jul 1997 05:00:00 GMT"); // some day in the past
      header("Cache-Control: must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0");
      header("Last-Modified: ".date("D, d M Y H:i:s")." GMT");
      header("Content-type: video/m4v");
      header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=".basename(str_replace(' ', '_', $file->getFilename())));
      header("Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary");
      readfile($file->getFullPath());
   }
   
   function getFilename()
   {
      $file = self::Mp4File();
      return $file->Filename;
   }
   
   function getFileURL()
   {
      return self::BaseHref().self::getFilename();
   }
   
   function getFilesize()
   {
      $file = self::Mp4File();
      if($file) {
         return $file->getSize();
      }
   }
   
   function getFilesizeBytes()
   {
      $file = self::Mp4File();
      if($file) {
         return $file->getAbsoluteSize();
      }
   }
}

class VodcastPage_Controller extends Page_Controller {
   
   function init()
   {
      parent::init();
      
   }
   
   function download()
   {
      VodcastPage::Mp4Download();
   }
}
?>

VodcastHolder.php

class VodcastHolder extends Page
{

   static $db = array();
   
   static $has_one = array();
   
   static $allowed_children = array('VodcastPage');
   static $default_child = "VodcastPage";
   
}

class VodcastHolder_Controller extends Page_Controller {
   
   function init()
   {
      parent::init();
      Requirements::JavaScript('website/javascript/jquery.flash.js');
      // important the src varibale will need to be modified and retrieve the lastest Vodcasts file path you will have top work this out as I had this in the template this was before silverstripe put all scripts at the bottom of page
Requirements::customScript(<<<JS

$(function(){
$('#vodcast-playnow').flash(
{
src: 'website/flash/vodcast_player.swf',
width: 240,
height: 205,
flashvars: { src: 'somefile.mp4' },
wmode: 'transparent'
},
{ version: 9 }
);
});
JS
);

   }
   
   
   function iTunesLink()
   {
      return str_replace('http://', 'itpc://', self::AbsoluteLink()) . "rss";
   }
   
   function LatestVodcast()
   {
      $page = DataObject::get_one("VodcastHolder");
       $vodcast = DataObject::get("VodcastPage", "`SiteTree`.ParentID = $page->ID", "Date DESC", NULL, 1);
      if($vodcast) {
         return $vodcast->First();
      }
   }
   
   function LatestMp4()
   {
      $vodcast = self::LatestVodcast();
      $file = DataObject::get("File", sprintf("File.ID = %d", $vodcast->MP4ID));
      if($file) {
         return $file->First();
      }
   }
   
   function LatestMp4Filename()
   {
      $file = self::LatestMp4();
      if($file) {
         return $file->Filename;
      }
   }
   
   function LatestMp4Filesize()
   {
      $file = self::LatestMp4();
      if($file) {
         return $file->getSize();
      }
   }
   
}

5) Create template for VodcastHolder

<% if LatestVodcast %>
<div id="latestvodcast">
<div class="inner">
<% control LatestVodcast %>
<h3>$Episode $Title.XML</h3>
<p class="date">$Date.Day, $Date.Long</p>
$Summary
</div>
<div id="vodcast-playnow"></div>
<div id="vodcast-info">
<span class="running-time">Running Time: $RunningTime</span>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<span class="filesize">Size: $Top.LatestMp4Filesize</span>
<span class="link"><a href="$URLSegment/download">Download full size video</a></span>
</div>
</div>
<% end_control %>
<% end_if %>

Sorry I can't explain in more detail but gives you the general idea on how I did it, hope this helps some.
