Paid Video Downloads

Post by bulldogpete » Thu Oct 29, 2020 4:09 am

A client would like site visitors to pay to download videos currently loaded onto Vimeo.
Is this even possible?
There are plenty of options to download files from the Media Manager, but I don't want to upload mp4 files to the server where the Joomla site is hosted because they will take up too much space.
Anyone got any suggestions?

Hi there,

Yes, you can. But you need a custom solution for this requirement. Vimeo is a separated platform, but you can connect your site via API, and then add the payment solution.

Also consider that basic users can't download videos from the platform, so you also need a membership to provide this functionality.

Find more info about the API in
