    This maybe sort of a dumb question but is there a way to create a timer of some sort in WordPress? Anyways I soon may have a client that wants a web-page with a video stream embedded into it. That’s easy, I know how to do that and the type of software, etc. that I will need. This client runs a children’s daycare.

    My problem is they want to have the children’s parents be able to login to their website and view a live cam and watch their kids play. The part I can’t figure out is they want a time limit say of 2 minutes that a parent can watch every hour. So, how would I go about setting up a feature to limit the time they can watch a video feed? Is this even possible? I mean if they were to look at the source of the page im sure they could see the feed location.

    Any suggestions are helpful.
    Thanks,
    Jake

    Okay i’ve got a kinda simple yet unique method.

    To allow the parents to actually view the video, make them click a button. Then, using Javascript, time that button for two minutes, then an alert will come up, which you can then redirect to a page explaining their time is up.
    JS:

    Code:

    and then the HTML:

    <form>
    <input type="button" value="Time limit!"
    onClick="timedMsg()" />
    </form>

    then you can use another delay of 60mins to wait for the other two minutes.

    I know i’m kinda "noob-ish" but it is a very simple way.

    :D
