We have the same task as this project:
[url removed, login to view]
We want to add streaming functionality to joomla/virtuemart.
a) the user should be able to pay for a movie and watch it, as streaming movie, from within the site. The movie should be available for a specific amount of times and duration (e.g. max 5 times, max 24 hours). The above should be editable from the admin of Joomla/virtuemart.
b) The user will be able to watch the movie, after payment, but he will also be able to see a list with all his "orders", where he will be able to select which movie he wants to watch, and be informed if no more times/hours are available. This is similar to the downloads feature of virtuemart. We basically need a "hack" to change the flow of virtuemart and add streaming video playback instead of downloading.
c) we should be able to add the urls of the videos from the admin of joomla/virtuemart (videos will be hosted (and streamed) on an external provider)
We need a joomla/virtuemart installation where the above flow will be available, so we can build the actual site.
We are going to have several similar projects so we are looking for someone we can communicate in a flexible and reliable way.
Thank you all for your time!!
