How do I know if there has been an update to the plug-in?
Thanks for the reply. So it isn’t possible to turn off the quantity in the shopping cart for specific items? Perhaps that could be a future feature.
Thanks again for such a rapid response.
“Viewing” is exactly what I want the users to be able to do. My client calls this an “online rental” function. We want users to have a link to stream a video as often as they want for a period of 24 hours without them being able to download it.
I thought the “Pay Per View Content” option would do just that. (Lightbox is not a good solution because I do not want the movie to pop out but just be on their browser screen.)
For the “Pay Per View Content” option the text says, “For pay per view content, the true URL of the page where the content is embedded (e.g. a steaming video) does not get revealed.”
If the video is embedded into a html page than what keeps the user from viewing source and seeing the location of the video file?
Can the shopping cart create a direct link for viewing the file for 24 hours without being able to download it?
I realized that I had not properly configured the S3 add-on settings so I corrected those.
When I purchased the test file earlier I used the Downloadable setting to make sure that the strict download would work without masking. The download worked without a hitch from the S3 server.
I continued testing by changing the settings to “Pay per view” and re-purchased the digital link. When the email arrived with the link for the streaming video I noticed that the link was identical to the previous link. I went ahead and clicked on it figuring that the shopping cart would resolve the link using the new settings.
Unfortunately, the entire test file downloaded to my Mac. Do I need to delete this product and add it again with the pay per view option selected? We only want people to be able to rent the training film for 24 hours without getting a downloaded copy.
What should I do next?
I was impressed by how quickly you replied before!
The file I am trying to view is 1.05 GB so I decided to try the Amazon S3 service. For testing purposes I used a test .mov file that is only 40MB. I moved the test file to their bucket and attempted the purchase again.
I got a similar error but it references a different line of code in the mask.php file…
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 39284013 bytes) in /home/content/86/8319386/html/wp-content/plugins/wp-cart-for-digital-products/mask.php on line 60
I do not want to host the site on the S3 service, just the digital download. If the server where the web site is hosted is doing this masking than I do not understand how the S3 service is supposed to help…
