Best Practices for videos in Member Areas?

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://atlschoolofphoto.com/

I'm wondering if anyone has experience creating a Member Area with videos.

I'm interested in creating a Member Area for my students to have exclusive access to Zoom recordings of virtual workshops.

The videos are already uploaded to Vimeo.

When I create a Member Area page, I can add these videos from Vimeo.

My problem (logically speaking) is when I upload the videos to Squarespace in the Member Area, should the videos be password protected? Should they be public?

If they're password protected, this is just another step our students would need to take to see the videos.

If they're public, what's the point in having a paid Members Area, when they could just view them for free on our Vimeo page?

Anyone find a good solution?

Thanks in advance!

Sarah,

I use Vimeo to host videos for a personal side project and subscribe to the Plus Plan which allows me to remove the videos from the Vimeo website, restrict what domains the videos appear on (so only my website) and prevent it from being embedded on another site.

This would enable you to host videos for your class in the Members Area without students being able to find them on vimeo.com.

I think I already have that plan, this is PERFECT. Thank you!!
