I hope you aren't planning to autoplay the files. And if it's up to download, then mp3/mp4 would be a better option (in my opinion).

Never trust users inputs and ALWAYS use ORM or at least PHP-PDO.

I figured out the problem... in the generated SQL the question marks had quotes around them ('?') which to the SQL looked like a value rather then a parameter/variable (whichever one it is) that is needed to be bound.

Sorry, this was a silly question indeed. Just after a while of not coding I forgot things!

I have to include the file outside the function and set-up global at the beginning of function.
PHP Code: [ Select ]

  2. {
