Client tired of getting tutorial movies stolen and distributed on PTP networks.

client wants:

"For 1.99 user can get a time limited password to a non saveable movie file"

"user can watch the tutorial movie for 2 days for $1.99"

How could this be implemented? Payloadz issues temporary links to paying users but users download content. I need to know how to issue time limited links to movie segments and hopefully something automated so I dont have to administer every sale.

Would it be easier with flash,mov,WMP,Real?

Pure stream with Real is your best bet, AFAIK. If you try and do anything else, the file will be found in your temp internet files dir, so anyone with half a brain could still yank it out and pass it around. The same goes for flash files.
Using a Real server will permit you to stream the data through the player which can be embedded. Like internet radio, nothing get's saved in the temp internet files except for the placeholder -- an alias or pointer.

Cheers.
