It is a challenge to protect and keeps the video content secure while streaming it live. All the videos that have watched had stolen. The only thing that we can do it takes maximum measure to make stealing the live streaming video difficult.
There are many ways in which the video can be managed and protected.
The first thing to do to manage and protect the live streaming video is to use a real streaming server. The advantage with this is that the video is not downloaded to the device of the user and is only seen as a stream so there will be no file left on the hard drive of the user.
People with technical understanding only can try to steal the live streaming video.
These people usually try to steal the stream using some capture tool. This application captures the video stream and saves it to the computer in the form of a file.
Streaming video servers are also called the streaming media. These are applications that run on an internet server.
Advantages with these true streaming are the ability to handle larger traffic, ability to broadcast live events. Using these can help to protect the streaming videos.
DaCast offers best security features for live stream on its streaming media services. The protection is offered both for the live broadcast content and previously recorded video material.
Live streaming security is considered very important by DaCast. The infrastructure of DaCast offers the highest security for video streaming as well as storage.
Token security offered by DaCast prevents redirecting the content to a third party source.
Domain restriction feature allows the broadcaster to lock their content and prevent others from embedding their link on other sites. Another restriction feature of DaCast is the Geo-localization which restricts the content based on country.
YouTube offers similar privacy option they offer for on-demand videos. The live streaming video can be marked as unlisted video so that people with the link can only access it. It can be marked as private also so that only specific people will be able to watch it.
When the live streaming is marked unlisted only some people can share the URL or can add to a channel selection. When the video streaming is private, no one can share the URL, post on the channel or it will be appearing in subscriber feed also. YouTube live allow managing the privacy setting and limit the access to the content to only some people.
Verizon digital media services offer protection of live streaming via HTTPs support, token-based authentication and digital rights management. The service builds security features in CDN platforms and allows delivery of HTTP and HTTPs traffic on these platforms.
Streaming services now are offering to secure video features. These features help to restrict the access to the video to specific people. People will be able to watch the live streaming through using email verification or sign on methods.
Some video streaming platforms use HTTPs to ensure the protection of the video content.
HTTP live streaming works by breaking down the file into small files. The HLS delivery reduces the risk of video file theft as it is impossible to capture the live streaming as a single file.
Security should not be a major concern for those who live to stream their content.
There is need to invest in a Content delivery network with highest security features. This network allows for encryption and also protects from viruses also. However, it should be remembered that improving security should not affect the content quality.
