Security questions about Pay Per View

Hello everyone,

I bought Pay Per View and i want to ask you two questions.

1) I have embeded a video and I want users to pay via Pay Per View to watch this video.

What if a user pays and then get the direct link to the video?

Could he watch or download video later, without need to visit my website?

For example if video is located on mywebsite.com/videos/movie1.mp4 and I embeded it to mywebsite.com/movie1 . The user paid to watch it on mywebsite.com/movie1 and then he opened source code of this page and then he found the direct link to video… Is this a possible scenario?

2) What if a user pays for a one month subscription and then give his username/pass to his friends? Could they watch videos on my website using his account?

Best regards,

Nikola.

    Greetings Nikola,

    Welcome to WPMU DEV!

    Thank you for the questions.

    If within the time frame allowed by you they can look at the video via your web site until the allotted time expires ~or~ they clear their cookies.

    For example if video is located on mywebsite.com/videos/movie1.mp4 and I embeded it to mywebsite.com/movie1 . The user paid to watch it on mywebsite.com/movie1 and then he opened source code of this page and then he found the direct link to video… Is this a possible scenario?

    They cannot see the source link destination.

    2) What if a user pays for a one month subscription and then give his username/pass to his friends? Could they watch videos on my website using his account?

    It is controlled by cookies there is no user name and password.

    Thank you for being a WPMU DEV Community Member and have a GREAT week!
