Can membership inhibit click ability on an embedded video thumbnail?

On my membership site, I have the members area completely locked down.

If I want to open it up for viewing only, to the public, to entice membership and to help with seo, I’d need to protect viewing of the videos, which are embedded, and use the more tag, and downloads protection for non members.

How can I inhibit the ability to click a video to play it, or have a prompt for membership when they click, if they are not a member/subscriber. Does membership allow this kind of thing or is there some other wordpress function that will help with this?

    Greetings william_bronson,

    Thank you for this great question and a significant item to bring up.

    You should easily be able to lock down the videos from none members by using URL Groups to deny access as you see fit.

    Simply include the video url in a negative URL Group.

    Cheers, Joe
