Wouldn't it be easier to put encryption at the transport layer (access
in VLC's speak) rather than on the file?

Besides, it's not clear to me whether you will encrypt the file
separately for each client, or whether they will be pre-encrypted with a
per-file symmetric key that would then be transmitted to appropriate
clients separately.
