    Hi,

    I'm building a video website with Wordpress, JW player & aMember (trial), before I buy the pro version, I'd have one question.

    I'd like to show a video preview (video A) to visitors while browsing a webpage . Once they registered and purchased the video, the same page should display the "real" video (video B) .

    => Is it possible to switch from video A to video B on the same page with aMember or should I create two different pages for video A & video B respectively?

    Thank you, (and keep the good work!)
    Fred

    You should be able to do this with the amProtect plugin. It lets you control access to specific pieces of content on a page with short code.

    You can have one video that is only visible to visitors and one video that is only visible to those with with a specific membership.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your answers.

    So there's no way to do it without Amprotect (in any case, it's fine as the pugin looks very good!)?

    Besides, is there any way to do this at the product level? For example, if a user buys a specific video
    - he'll get access to the full version of the video he purchased
    - he'll be shown the preview of other videos he didn't purchase

    Thank you,

    yes

    Not sure about that- I havent tried that yet, i have my teaser video set to display for nonmembers (no products bought).

    Think the problem is if members are active for product 1 and 2, where 2 is the premium, they would get the teaser too if set to display for nonmembers or active members of product 1.

    That's my biggest concern, as we plan to sell access to video at the product level => members active for product 1 should only get access to the prview of product 2... Any thought?

    Thank you

    I'll talk to Ken about this (plugin creator), maybe he can add an [amprotectelse] [/amprotectelse] or [amprotectnot=] code.

    This is exactly what amProtect can do with the short codes that work for particular products and the [amelse] short code, which is the key.

    Here is an example page where I did exactly what you are describing...

    http://kencinnus.com/training/customer-agreement/

    You put both videos on the page. Let's say the product id is 90 then this code is what does the work...

    [amprotect=90]
    real video embed code goes here
    [amelse]
    preview/teaser goes here with purchase button
    [/amprotect]

    And that's all there is to it.

    @kengary : Awesome, I allready was amazed by your plugins (so many to buy!) but now I'm 100% convinced!

    @davidm1 : thank you for your time and explanations, it's good to know there's an active community behind amember

    Thanks for the update Ken- I'll be using/teaching that method for now on.
    Great Plugin!!!

    Didnt see it in the "how to use" section of the plugin- needs to be added?
