Digital/streaming delivery for Dance Recitals

I know there are a couple of other discussions on the subject but they seem to also be aimed towards USB delivery, which is not something I am looking into due to it not really meeting my business model + cost of the items.

I wanted to look at Netflix style streaming, but I couldn't find anything out there commercially available that met the need, so decided to design something from scratch.

You can see a couple of examples published on under the examples heading.

The idea being we offer 3 options:

1. Public viewing - open link (so it can be shared to anyone that they want to see)
This option is not very common but a couple of college level schools want it to showcase their end of year shows.

2. Show code - the company hiring me pays a fixed price and then I give them a show code. they can then share the code, parents still have to register on my site and then they add the code to get the film added to their library. Each year they can simply add the next show to their existing library. This is my target process.

3. Purchase code - Each parent can purchase a code from my website and that gives them access to add to their library. I have this to meet the needs of existing customers that want me to deal only with the parents/students.

The key to this is that the shows can only be watched by streaming on our site. No option to download, no option to watch embedded on anything but my site.

There is still the potential that parents could make one purchase and share the login with others when using option 3, but I have yet to see this happen, and I also can see how many views are being made concurrently so if it happens I can at least investigate. But to date, no one has.

Also, option 2 is what I am promoting, which for one customer this year means we have published 21 shows for them and only offered distribution this way.

I have also given the option for a cheap DVD purchase also should it be needed, but just disc only, no complex menus, just simple and cheap to make and post should someone want the physical disc.

Has the option to add scenes as well. Would be interested in feedback on what people think, I am very happy with the product after using it for 6 months now, considering there really was nothing out there (not that I could find anyway) it is great to have a future model for delivering on a medium other than DVD, and great to be able to give nice HD.....
capture it as it happens...with motion and sound.
