Private videos on your Joomla site, on a shoestring budget

Video, although projected to make up 76% of all web traffic in 2018, can require a lot of expensive server disc space and internet bandwidth.

If you're on a shoestring budget, but still need to serve private video content on your site, it can be challenging to answer the age old question "how do I show my site's users and members private video content and keep the costs down?"

In this week’s blog we’re going to show you, from start-to-finish, how you can share and add a private video from Dropbox, Google Drive, Youtube, Vimeo, ... on your Joomla site using DOCman

  1. For any file you uploaded to Dropbox, click on the file's share button.
