Hi Russell,

that was a great pointer. I think I managed to set it up and now all
the videos hosted on the
Perl Maven site are being served directly by Nginx.

I'll write a blog post showing an example using Dancer later on, but
it would be great if you could
try to break the system :)

This video is free and should be downloadable by anyone:

This video, however:
should be only served to people who are Perl Maven Pro subscribers and
who are logged in.

Can you somehow trick the server into downloading that file?
Maybe by supplying  X-Accel-Redirect:  ?
