FTP Files Encoding

I am building a website on which multiple users can upload videos. All videos will be uploaded to my folder in ftp. I want all videos to be played using JW player. Can you please let me know how can I encode all videos, Although I have worked with the platform API, but that is uploading the videos in my JW player Account . I want them to upload to my FTP and Encode it into JW Player.
Please Reply.

I would assume you would need some automated process that latches on to the API from your FTP. At the moment, you can encode your own stream but we perform the transcoding process on our end. I assume you have our API but I’ve included it anyway for reference:

I have used this coding in my file

</head><script src="jwplayer.js"></script>

<body><div id="myElement">Loading the player...</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
file: "PHP cURL Tutorial Part 1- Basic Structure.mp4",

image: "/uploads/myPoster.jpg"


But this work only for one file, What about the multiple files.
