Hello, @jantoodutta

You should be alright streaming videos on the Digital Ocean droplets as long as the copyrights are yours or if you are allowed to show it.

As for the how to, you can use different CMS platforms to built your website or you can just built it up from scratch, it’s entirely up to you.


  • Thanks for your answer. Actually I don’t want to build a website. I want to make an android app only where users can buy and watch video courses. Will it be sufficient to use only DigitalOcean space in this case. Is there any SDK available for Android to integrate DigitalOcean Space with Android.

  • hey alex,

    i am designing same kind of web application, just want to confirm is your server providing any kind of special encryption and protection for video hosting. so that any one can’t download our propitiatory videos
