It looks like I will be delving into the realm of DreamObjects, as I have a project coming up that sounds like a good use-case for this. I am curious if experienced devs might agree, and any other thoughts before I start?
A client of mine would like a WordPress site where he can have videos that can be purchased for streaming OR downloading.
The videos are ones he makes…something to do with meditiation and yoga…so no pirated content or anything like that.
My first thought would be to use Youtube or Vimeo for the streaming, but then I thought this might a good chance to try out WordPress’s built in player. This would also make uploading each video a one-time thing since he wants his website visitors to be able to stream or download.
By using DreamObjects, I hope to avoid any run-ins with Dreamhost about taking up too much space or bandwidth.
Also, I have a vague impression that using DreamObjects would be slightly speedier for downloads…not sure where I got that idea from…read something somewhere.
At any rate, I will be doing some home-work on this today, but would like to hear from anyone who has inside knowledge on the proper use of DreamObjects, how it works with WordPress, good experiences, bad experiences, etc…
