All videos inside our site are protected and should be seen only by the users inside my country.
So all the raw video urls are protected by a content protection signature.
Given that we cannot add the raw video urls directly inside our sitemap, because for each raw video url we need to generate a signature based on the reader ip address in order to allow reader to get the content.
So, we are thinking to set up a "page" on our server that catch all the raw video urls and if user agent is a bot then forward it towards the real Server with all the additional info for content protection.
http://myserver/fakepage/video_id -- 302 --> http://videoserver/video_id.format?signature
The question is, in your experience, is this feasible? Would the bots accept as answer a redirect (301, 302) instead of the real raw video url?
