Video Shopping Plugin

Just finish coding major stuff of Video plugin for wordpress that enable Purchase of Video and then view to only registered members. This use Paypal Express Checkout as payment gateway. Love coding on wordpress at time, though it is not as good as doing in custom CMS, but still very much a home for me now. I use couple of other plugin to support my plugin, but in all just love the expendability of WordPress. The hooks, filter they are all awesome. 

I love the concept of Hooks in wordpress than any other open source software I worked on. However still trying to figure why wordpress use so much of database query and why they do not certain function outside the loop. 

Telling more about my plugin, it allow admin to upload Video files, put their price. Then on front end choose filter to find video and add to cart using AJAX. once in cart you can proceed with checkout as wordpress user only and pay through paypal. View purchased video in MY Video pages, unless you are logged in you cannot view the video not from direct link too. 

Unfortunately this plugin is built on contract and need lot of work to make it generic to release under my belt, but if anyone need it I can still help with it :). Someday probably I can release this plugin under my name. What you think shall I release it free or paid …
