I have read about this topic on the following link and found it really useful

Community Builder - a great component, but needs an SEF extension to enable
URLs like Youtube.

naturally, you need to put in some hack to do it.
|Drupal is SSL compatible.|

DocMan is the default document management system.
|Lags behind in this area.|
