Hi Mark,

That sounds good except that the user is purchasing from me through a third party
and I have no good way of validating.  I can attach a number to the URL but that
same number will be on every unit purchased and visible to the user.  I can’t make
it unique for every unit purchased.  That’s why I’d rather jump a couple of URL’s and
have the last one hidden or unknown to the user.

Other ideas?

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.
