Sounds like the LC/iRev script will not solve your problem either. 
Even if your server obfuscates the real URL, people can simply pass 
the link published in the ebook. It seems to me that the real issue 
for you is how to uniquely and reliably identify users who are 
authorized to see your video. I venture that you need to somehow tap 
into the unique identification attached to each online purchase.
