    I'm looking for advice here. Not sure this is considered black hat but I just want visitors to my site to be able to watch a few mins. of video then require they fill out an opt-in form. The video would then continue or I could send a password. It's a Joomla site if it makes a difference. Any help? I'm thinking it's possible with blackhat codebreaker but that might be overkill for what I need.

    Make two videos. Video one is a few minutes video two is the rest of the video. Video one is placed on a page that's got a delayed timer lightbox effect. Visitor comes in and starts to watch the video, in time lightbox gets triggered screen dims out and your auto-responder email collector pops in. On submit visitor is redirected to the page where video two plays the rest of your video.

    ************** has code for this, they give you a gateway thingy that will lock the page after an amount of time you define and to continue, the user has to fill out an offer form.

    Ive just finished up a bhcb style script, as part of it it lets you put in a youtube video if you wanted to
    you could set it to lock the page up, and load a page cover, which would have your video on
    and play the video. Then after 2minutes (or the length of the video) the page would unlock and the video would disappear and would show the opt in form on the page

    oops I guess I posted something bad and it got cenvcored (name of a cpa company), anyway there is a specific cpa network that is setup to basically do this and only this. wowhaxor mentioned them in one of his threads and thats how I found out about them.

    pomp I think the OP wants to collect emails not run a cpa offer. I'm familiar with that outfit you're talking about.

    Thanks for the ideas guys. I think the 2 video idea is probably just what I need. I'll check out the other ones too. John

    A bunch of us are talking about BHCB on another thread in the forum. You'll find the thread here
    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo-tools/115603-blackhatcodebreaker-iii.html
    Works well, and there's a new version coming out with a WP plugin. :D

    Don't know if you could adapt it to joomla, but Brad may be able to give you some advice once he's got V3 out the doors.

    Home Page:
    BHCB does exactly what you stated: you can let visitors start watching your video, and whn it gets interesting (you decide when) the page will lock and they'll have to fill-in a CPA offer (or give you their email address if that's what you want) if they want to continue watching the vid.

    BHCB works great with Joomla. No problem at all.

    Cheers,
    Brad

    Hi,

    QuickVideoOptin do same stuff, show them any video and you can stop video by entering seconds and show what ever you want to, then video countinues.

    I like the way with blackhatcodebreaker you can keep their emails. So you can build a list.
