In the past couple of years our clients have moved away from DVDs in favor of USB flash drives. We buy SanDisc drives in bulk, 50-100 at a time.
We recommend to all clients that they copy video files from the flash drive to their computer hard drive, as often the thru-put of the flash drive is not adequate to produce good video. All video files are in the mp4 format, as Paul suggests.
I recently purchased a flash drive duplicator so we can handle large orders efficiently.
There are undoubtedly those who use their flash drive to share with others but so far that has been a very minor problem for us. There’s nothing to be done about the unscrupulous.
Sharing on DropBox or a similar site is a possibility but, as Paulears reports, this proves too difficult for many and for us has turned out to be more of a nuisance than a solution.
