    Does anyone know how to setup, for example, a video that you want to sell on a site. The payment is via paypal and once this payment is confirmed that the client would receive a unique url to the video that they could download.

    I was thinking of an automatised script that would change the url for each user or the url changes after the user has linked to it.

    Any suggestions or how i can approach this differently?

    There is a tutorial on NetTuts that would allow you to do this. … -with-php/

    If the idea is that the video is otherwise locked down and can only be downloaded by purchasers, you might want to look into something like FoxyCart or E-Junkie which offers digital delivery of files. Otherwise, software like aMember to lock down particular areas of a website only for paying members.
