Got the email, and it works great. I sent an email but figured I’d post here – once on the page with the embedded media, all I have to do is hit ctrl+U to view the page source, and the actual URL of the page with the embedded media is shown, as well as the location of the source file. Any way to make this more secure/less obvious?May 5, 2010 at 1:15 am #16819amin007Participant
Yep, there are a few things you can do:
1. Embed your video in a plain HTML page and then use the URL of that page as your Pay Per view content. Similar to what I have on the following page as an example:
If you do a view source on that you can’t find the URL of that page because when I made that page I was careful about it. If you use WordPress posts or pages then remember WordPress will include all the common headers which will have the URL of the page. I have embedded YouTube videos there so it has links to YouTube but in your case I am sure you are not going to upload your secret videos on YouTube. So just use relative URL (e.g. videos/video1.flv) to embed the video on the page and no one will be able to know the actual URL of the video file either.
2. Embed the video in a PDF file then use the URL of the PDF file as your Pay Per View content. Browsers can render PDF files but if you view the source it will be gibberish.
3. Use HTML source encoder to encrypt your HTML files so when someone tries to read the source it’s unreadable by human eye.
Bottom line is that the Pay Per View content option of eStore has it’s usage but ultimately if you have super secret and valuable content then using a Membership plugin (e.g. WP eMember – http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/?p=1706) is the way to go.May 25, 2010 at 6:28 pm #16820adherentMember
I’d really like to use this feature too. I’m using estore v2.8.6. How may I get access?

Hi, The following post will explain how updates are handled:
If you have any questions please let me know.

I’d need to do that too:
– a customer buy the video
– he’s subscribed into emember + he receives a secret link to the video.
I want him to display the video at any time without expiration (or a big one, one year)
But I don’t want the other member, even with the same privilege level (premium for instance), can watch the video if they bought another one.
Each one of them can only view their video.
So I guess I have to tweak it with estore only? not emember ..?!
any ideas would be welcome
all the best,

Use the multiple membership levels per user feature explained here:
Categorize your videos into different membership levels then based on the video a member buys, the corresponding level will be added to his/her profile and will allow that person to see that video.
