    Hello

    I’m trying to use url of download-file as the source of html video tag, sth like:

    <video controls=”controls” width=”100%” height=”100%”>
    <source src=”https://www.example.com/download/544&#8243; />
    </video>

    The problem is that it plays about 3 seconds and then stops, or sometimes it doesn’t play at all!
    however, videos play smoothly when source url serves from wp-content (unprotected videos)

    I’ll appreciate any help
    Thanks!

    Hello,

    Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Please note that the files uploaded using our plugin are saved in a protected folder. So it should not play any videos at all. If you wish to play the videos, then you will need to use the direct video URL’s.

    Thanks for your help. Yes you’re right but if I upload my videos to wp-content Folder and use its links to play vip-videos, I’ll lose protection and my vip-videos will be for public and even may get indexed by google which is not what I want.

    Any help on how I can have Download Monitor protected folder functionality for my videos beside having them played smoothly for vip-members only?

    by the way I don’t wanna use heavy plugins like restrict content

    I’ll appreciate any help
    Thanks!

    Hello,

    I regret to say there is no way to protect the videos and also allow them to be played. You might need to contact a 3rd party developer to create a custom solution for this.
