We require help in building a fully working site to deliver paid video content via rss feeds in itunes but outside of the itunes store.
We need the ablitly to add content to the site and also profiles for people appearing in them ( ie Bands ) to the site as well as have the most popular episodes shown on the from pages. Something very similar to many of the "band" or Mp3 sales sites on template monster but i guess something like [url removed, login to view] is closer with the video content that they provide.
Visitors need to be able to watch a short free preview of the podcast ( hosted by us, played in flash most probably ) , but have to purchase the full video, so Paypal integration is essential.
PLEASE BE CLEAR ON THE NEXT PART
We need the system to be able to create the unique download RSS feed on the fly so that if customer 1 buys episode 1 then an RSS feed is created along the lines of itpc://domain/[url removed, login to view] so that they can then click this and itunes subscribes and download that link automatically this needs to be shown in their purchase history. After 24 hours that link expires ( or we can expire it at any time ) . Within 72 hours the customer can ask for a new link to be sent and another is generated in their accounts page. We believe this cant be done using a database as iTunes will not be able to pull media from a database unless you know otherwise .
To begin with we would be happy with people having to buy podcasts one buy one but we would much prefer that people can buy an X Epsiode pass ( say 5 for Â£5 ) and get the next 4 epsiodes sent to them via the subscription link automatically without the need to come back to the site. Obviously this link needs to expire after the 5th episode is shipped.
URL for project will be given and you'll get a much better flavour of what we are trying to achieve .
We would prefer this to be an ongoing arrangement with new features etc etc being worked on as and when we need them or when the chosen supplier thinks they can create something that offers unique value .
Any questions please email or post in the forum
