I'm working on building a Joomla website for a client and need a solution that would allow them to play, (not download,) video content, specifically mov files after they have paid for them via PayPal.  I've looked at several options but I really need something that will be easy for the client to update new content.  Any ideas?

I use AllVideos to display the content in articles, but the issue I am struggling with the most is storing these videos somewhere that they can't be accessed unless the user is logged in and has proper permissions.

I think the best solution for this is to use something like Community Builder or JomSocial. You already have the video component down, now you just need to add teh community aspect of it so you can charge a subscription to view the movie.  Both Community Builder and JomSocial have that capability.  It might be worth your while to check out CB as it's free.

Using CB with CBSubs to allow the paid features and controlling access to the articles in which the videos are embedded, due to issues with AllVideos and the .mov files not being able to show full screen I went with Flowplayer Reloaded display the content, but of course lost iPad support for the .mov files themselves.  As far as directory protection the solution offered in CBSubs is not a good solution as client will not want to enter in password each time to get to protected directories, so I'm working on a different solution for that.

Thanks everyone.
