Ive purchased the Videopress upgrade as a solution to post video on my self hosted site.
I have no trouble uploading a video at WP.com and posting it on my self hosted site.
The problem is this, and it's no small problem.
There seems to be no way to enable embedding without ALSO enabling DOWNLOADS.
And I mean, full out download of quicktime files onto your hard drive.
Allowing anybody to download my videos is 100% not OK. I know of no other streaming video solution that actually allows downloads. if there WAS such a feature there would certainly be the ability to restrict downloads and still enable embeds you would think , right?
No - This doesn't seem possible on Videopress. I either allow anybody to download my video onto their hard drive or I lose the ability to enable embedding.
OK, so I'm thinking I can go into the Videopress code and change something to create some duct tape workaround. I don't see a way.
Now understand, I want to enable embedding.
I just don't want to also enable DOWNLOADING.
Please tell me that there is at least a work-around to this rather frustrating limitation.
While you're at it you might help me speculate as-to why Videopress would not see this imediately as a mistake and update the player.
This issue is holding up the launch of my site. Your help is greatly appreciated.
