I have a client, (dance school) who has 3 shows a year that I video & create DVDs to sell to parents. The school wants to do away with the DVDs & have the parents pay for & down load the video from the internet. When a parent down loads a video the client wants the parent not to be able to share the video with another parent without paying. One show is approx 3 hrs. the other 2 shows are approx 1 1/2 hrs long. I edit with Adobe Premire Pro. I have a Smug Mug & Drop Box acc.
Please advise me on what to do.
Thank you in advance.
For added security, my download files reside on Amazon S3 buckets without public access. https://aws.amazon.com/s3/
So even if the download link falls into wrong hands, they can't access the files without 1) a special encrypted key and 2) a link that originates from my servers. Additionally, the links expire after X number of days.
"the client wants the parent not to be able to share the video with another parent without paying."
No-can-do. Once a file is downloaded, parents can do whatever they want with it. There's nothing you can do to prevent sharing on social media and e-mail. It's out of your hands.
