A quick question on VideoPress functionality. A lot of the documentation for VideoPress is for the WordPress.com videopress, and this is a SELF-hosted blog.
My site is a video website, where *paying* members can watch videos. So, before I fork over the $60, I have a few questions:
1.) Can I block videos from bein watched unless they are logged in to the website?
I'd like to "Post" each video on the blog, and only if the visitor is logged in can they actually play the video. I want the video window to show in each post as I add them for all to see, but just not actually play the video until they have logged in. I know I can restrict access to areas for members only, but I want people who arent members to see that there is content being added all the time, but only see the actual video if they are logged in. If VideoPress cant do this, is there a way to do this where non-members will still see that there is content being added all the time but just not play it?
2.) I have 100GB of videos already on my web server in mp4/wmv format. Is there a way to tell VideoPress to use them rather than re-uploading each one painfully slowly over DSL again? If not, is there a plugin that would allow me to import the videos already on the server into VideoPress? I have "Add From Server" and I can already add mp4's this way but it doesnt have anywhere near all the features of VideoPress. But, Add From Server does import the movie into the Media Library. Can VideoPress choose from the media library?
That's it! Thank you very much for your help and support!
