Posting on demand video on my site

Posted on 2011-10-30

I have some videos that I would like to have them in my site. But want the first 2 for free but the rest of the courses/classes to be viewable after visitor pay for the course and obtain user name and  password.

I have no clue on what to do. I don't want to reinvent the wheel. If there is a site that can host my video and I can link to it, i think that will work. I am open to any suggestion since this is the first time for me to try something like this.

    If you looking for a more secure solution you could use a video hosting provider like Playstream for a fee and working with them on the how to protect your content

    Another option would be to deploy your own video streaming server of which there are many options

    I know that this is just touching the surface but
