You are here: / / Hidden Download add on does not work with any settings
Hi. We desire to offer simple downloads for products. I find that Estore does not work for video files. We Downloaded the download monitor and purchased the hidden download add on.
The download monitor works great both for products on our site and for vimeo video download links. But, for vimeo, I desire to hide the download info. I cannot seem to get the hidden download add on to work with any combination of settings, either for files in my wordpress media directory or for external files. Any guidance? Thanks

Vimeo doesn’t allow you to do hidden downloads (similar to YouTube). That’s their business model. You need to host the file on your site if you want to really hide it from other people discovering it.
Most people use Amazon s3 or dropbox to host their video files (if they are going to offer private videos) that needs to be protected. The download monitor has an integration with S3 also.
Wow. I use vimeo premium to get a vimeo player with no vimeo branding, so I am surprised that the download links do not work. I am trying to phase our downloads on our wordpress server – Let’s talk abour dropbox. Does your dropbox add on allow for hidden downloads on its own, or would I still need the hidden download add-on or some combination? Thanks
The Dropbox addon works on its own (the hidden downloads is not required for dropbox integration). It uses the API to retrieve a file from your Dropbox account and then serve that file to the user.
