    Selling digital products and easiest method for customers

    Hello,
    I am not new to GoDaddy, but I am new to selling online. I have a DVD that I sell as a hard copy but am looking to also sell as a digital file. In reading through the digital products and requirements w/in the Store, due to the size (GBs) of my DVD I have broken it in to chapters. However, that feels clunky for the customer to have to work with - any suggestions to make this a better customer experience? Since this is a video, trying to compress in .zip files doesn't seem to be saving much in file size.

    Thank you very much for any insight or suggestions.

    Signed,

    On the side (as in I am helping the true owner with this on-the-side).

    I'm going with @PL281 on this one. Vimeo, in my opinion, is the best way to go if this is what you want to do. Yeah, YouTube is okay, but if they're getting to your videos via direct-link or on your site, Vimeo just looks better and works better.
