    What is the best way to deliver a video program?


    Hello Devshed;

    I have built a website with php mysql and I sell a 45 minute video program which is about 500 mb on disc. I have set up the database and orders so I store each paid email address in database (Paypal IPN).

    What is the best way to deliver this program?

    1 - Get them to pay online and send them a hard copy.
    2 - Get them to pay online and send them a temporary download link and let them download it with php?

    Thanks

    Seems like the second option would be a lot cheaper and more convenient.

    Personally I have no problems with download a 1 GB file.

    I thought I give them the option of both stream (jwplayer) or download. At anytime. But stream option will expire in 6 month.
