    I was trying to move the player on a platform. But I have enough problems with the colliders. Does anyone know of any tutorial for FPS regarding the subject?

    The easiest way to do it is to check for a collision occurrence. Once the player collides with the platform (assuming you check that the play is actually on top of the platform), simply set the player as a child of the parent platform.
    That is, whenever the parent object moves, the player should also move the same distance and same speed. Whenever the parent object rotates, the player object should also rotate that same amount.

    The implementation really depends on the engine you're using, if any.
