Hi Alex,

It's been a long time since I've played around with it, but it's worth 
pointing out that a solution already exists for (a narrow interpretation 
of) the use case you describe: HTTP Live Streaming lets you distribute 
encrypted video segments and pass the decryption key in the playlist 
metadata [0].
