To view videos in a Laravel project, you can follow these steps:

  1. Store the video files in a publicly accessible directory within your Laravel project. You can create a new "videos" directory within the "public" directory of your project and upload the video files there.
  2. Create a route in the routes/web.php file to handle the request for viewing the video. For example, you can create a route like this:
1
2
3
4
5
Route::get('/videos/{filename}', function ($filename) {
    $path = public_path('videos/' . $filename);
    
    return response()->file($path);
});


  1. In your blade template or view file, you can then use the video tag to embed the video in the page. For example:
1
2
3
4
<video width="320" height="240" controls>
    <source src="{{ url('videos/myvideo.mp4') }}" type="video/mp4">
    Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>


  1. When the user accesses the specified URL (e.g. /videos/myvideo.mp4), the video file will be fetched from the public directory and displayed in the browser.


Note: Make sure to properly handle security concerns such as authorization and validation of the video file paths before serving them to the users.
