I'm planning to run a membership site that hosts videos and I've got many ideas about how to build membership sites which make me really confused:confused: due to the variety of recommendations on membership sites' building process.
As far as I'm concerned, the perfect way to start is:
1. Build a WordPress content site.
2. Promote your membership site from your content's blog.
Nevertheless, the following are typical ways to start:
1. You should protect your videos from being downloaded.
I know that you would recommend easy video player (EVP) since it's awesome, powerful, etc..
But due to the high price they charge for this software which is $127 as of the time I'm posting plus the $77 for commercial license. I think, as a starter, I can find a good alternative (What do you think?)
2. Host your videos/files on amazon S3 account
P.s I like the fact that S3 costs you pennies for someone to watch your videos (you don't have to worry about the money being paid for streaming as long as you get more and more members).
3. What is the best membership plugin do you recommend?
Is there any all-in-one solution that combines video streaming software with a membership plugin + theme?
Thanks for your time,
