    I (obviously) don't want to use something like YouTube because people would have access to my content... how do I stream videos on my membership site? And I assume I should convert things to flv instead of wmv or mov?

    Upload your video to youtube withe some retard title and tags nobgody will search for. Go to Justin.tv, add it to your playlist and make your channel password protected. Embed your justin.tv player and give the password to your members. Then use some div image overflow to hide your justin.tv channel name from the bottom of the player so your members can't share the channel link and password with non-members. That should be enough to secure a privacy of your vid

    Thanks guys but let me clarify... I don't want to use my own bandwidth (too much $$) so an external seems best. I think I've seen some things that use a free account on Amazon and they stream it for free. Any ideas?
