Hi Rick,

That third party must have an API for it. If not, you need to change the 
vendor. I can't be that e.g. Apple sells music, while everybody is able 
to download the content once it has been bought by one person. Can you 
tell the name of that third party?

Kind regards,

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.
