Serving Videos with LC/iRev

Instead of hiding the URL, you could write a script that creates a key 
depending on user credentials and a unique number, say the time, and add 
it to the URL. The code should follow some some rules, e.g. the last 
part of the code could be a hash. Encrypt the information in your app 
and decrypt it on the server. If the user credentials are correct and 
the unique code is correct and hasn't been used yet, send the video, and 
reject the request otherwise.

Kind regards,
