    Posted: 06 Sep 2020 at 18:40
Hi,

I want to create a page that can only be accessed with password.
The page will have a video.

Questions:
  • Page: The hosting suggested to create a subdomain with one page and the video, and then included the password to access it. Is this the best/easiest way to do it?
  • Video: Is there any way to avoid that the video is downloaded (or is only downloaded with another password)?
Thanks

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} \.(mp4|mp3|avi)$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://sample.com/.*$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^.* - [F,L]

The first line %{REQUEST_URI} will prevent getting the file through the web browser or through curl. The second line %{HTTP_REFERER} will prevent accessing the image/video using HTML tags <img> or <video> from any website except the exception ! you provide instead of http://sample.com/ which usually should be your website itself.

You can also have a look at my question and the accepted answer here for more tricks on the browser side.

Create a new php page and add the packs (UserSpace01) to your site to manage password protection.

Allways make a full project backup prior to modify your site.

So, to make my life easier ( and the overall touch & feel consistent) I was considering to make this new page with the video based on one of the pages of the actual site.

 I have created a subdomain AND a new subdirectory in which this new video “page” will be saved. In this way, the regular site and this one for the video will remain completely independent and whatever I do here will not affect the regular site or saved info. The site would remain as it is now (mydatamygain.com) and the subdomain would be MDMGVideo.mydatamygain.com

 The page should have the same  touch&feell as the standard site, so I thought I could use the structure of the "News" page  I created based on the the sensode black template https://mydatamygain.com/actualites.htm , but with only one set of the sequence "anchor - FENETRE_MODAL -cadre"

I would keep all the rest of the components -including the top menu and the languages-, and I would ensure that those links are directed to the regular page https://mydatamygain.com.

I order to include the modifications in the htaccess that you recommend, the first step -I think- is to know what should go in that subdomain and subdirectory to achieve the above.

 So, Can I make a copy of the existing site, pass it to the subdiretory,  delete all unnecessary files and keep just the actualites page –rename it to become then the new index page (for the video) and then modify the access file as you suggest?

 I am sure that the above description is too crude, but something around that idea should be possible?
Any guidance will be more than welcome

The new page does not need to be an index.htm page.

You can use OE site explorer to create the new sub-directory.  Then duplicate the news page and move the duplicate into the new directory allways using OE's site explorer.  Therefore all OE utilities will know about this page and will be able to handle it.

On the server side, your sub domain must be assigned to your subdirectory.

So I created a folder -within oe site explorer- , cloned the actualites page, renamed it as video and put it in that folder.
Then within that page got rid of everything except one cycle of anchor - FENETRE_MODAL -cadre. I got rid of the columns and only left the space and there I pasted a Video HTML 5 element.

I uploaded the video to Project - Resources - Video files and the Video works well.

Questions:
  1. What size should the window have? I put 960w x 640H, and the video itself at 100% but I do not know how will that work in Mobile.
  2. I cannot find how to point this folder to a new subdirectory on the server side. This is that I have the subdirectory created in the server, I have also created the subdomain.
I can point the subdomain to the specific subdirectory in the server but I do not know how to "tie" the other two since from what I see, the video is a resource -therefore saved in the same Files(Image, Media, Video)  folder of the oe site file, and I cannot find how to point this particular folder to the subdirectory in the server.

Once I have that solved, I will start trying to make the password access and no download limitation.
Again thanks so much for all your guidance

Use this element instead https://denislafrance.net/Element/ResponsiveHTML5Video.en-us.htm

use the Edit Media utility to fix the width for each proposed media.

Thanks for that Hobby001

I had it already installed and running with the video adaptatif (you mentioned the element in previous posts)

I am sorry to insist in the other question.

How do I point the Video folder that I created within the project  to a different subdirectory in the server?

Thanks again for all your guidance

When you select the video file check External URL and point to your file
