Can anyone point me to where I can learn how to add an email form on a webpage so that a visitor can't get into my video on demand site unless they enter my email address?

It's done with programming.

Do you know any language?

You can start with PHP, but there are other options.

Hi Fernando,

No I don't but I figured that would be the answer. I don't have the resources that it would take at this time to learn something like this. I'll probably just use a contact form that redirects them to the vod page. I was hoping there was maybe a canned code or something to do it.

The problem is you need to protect your actual video page for the people not to access directly from the link. Maybe you can emmbedd your video inside a flash movie and use some password like actionscript to protect the reproduction. Actionscript is still programming, but that single task should not be that difficult. If you want to explore that option you can ask in the Flash forum.

If you just want to require a password, which it seems like your email address would be serving as, you could do it with .htaccess probably - relatively simple ... http://www.javascriptkit.com/howto/htaccess3.shtml might start you off.
