Video Content for paying members
I am going to post videos of our meetings on our website. I want to restrict access to those videos to only paid members.
The videos will be 1 hour in length so they will be large.
I am willing to pay for a third party service and do some one time development, but i want the process of uploading a new video to be something that a non-technical (yet competent) user can do. I want to restrict the video to paying members (we will have non-paying members as well).

we use www.audioacrobat.com and keep videos to 90 minutes maximum. However, depending on the enduser internet connection the buffering can take awhile
AA gives you a link that can be used on a password protected page and not be downloadable.
I am checking out VIMEO to see if the streaming option is better
You can use Vzaar http://vzaar.com
Have you considered Vimeo OTT?

Perhaps you could embed a private Youtube video into a members only page.

I opened the post for commenting - may be some other developers will be willing to help and share the experience.
Sorry, I cannot help with instructions on now to setup streaming to members only.

The link provided was not helpful because it did not address the problem of video files exceeding the 100MB limit. Although I did not mention it in the post most people want to stream video, not download it. So we would like a streaming solution; not a downloading solution.
Do you have any instructions for how we would add streaming videos that only our members can access to our wild apricot website. I am happy to use some paid CDN as long as what we are doing is simple and mainstream techniques.
