Secure Online Video Streaming: What you need to know? 30 October 2020

Secure Video Streaming Platform

Undoubtedly, companies across most industries have taken their business online on video streaming platforms amid the COVID-19 pandemic. As the number of users begin to spike, security risks like hacking and piracy also tend to rise. Thus, while you host video content for your viewers across any device and platforms, the security quotient of it cannot be ignored!

Hence, it is always wise to ensure that your shortlisted OTT platform has key features that would ensure secured streaming to your viewers. 

So, let’s get started and have a look at some key features of a secured online video streaming platform!

 

Multiformat & Multi-Device Compatibility 

This feature turns out to be essential as your viewers might happen to be using Android or iOS devices. The video platform you choose must support all media formats maintained by Android, iOS and Silverlight technologies. This is basically to ensure you don’t miss out viewers using devices based on these technologies. 

Your video streaming platform must also support all devices like mobiles, consoles, laptops, connectedTVs and other media consumption devices based on any OS and codecs so that your video content is delivered and streamed securely.

 

Video Encryption

When your video content pertains to corporate training, demos, business operations or any Elearning sessions for that matter, you don’t want unauthorized people to get access to your confidential materials or company information. Not to forget that there persists a higher possibility of revenue loss if the same is not checked. 

This is where video encryption protects your content from any unauthorized sharing or viewing, data breaches, and theft. 

Once you have your video content encrypted, you can safely share your corporate information with your staff, partners, prospects, customers, and viewers. 

 

Offline Viewing

With offline viewing, users can save video content directly to their devices instead of streaming over the web. This enables users to view their favorite videos when they are unable to connect to the internet or when they do not wish to use their mobile data plan. 

With DRM protected offline viewing, users can store videos in their Android and iOS devices in an encrypted format and be able to playback videos within your streaming app

Moreover, with Content Unique Key and License Key, offline protection will be enabled for your video content even after your users download them.

Along with all the above perks, you can also control the validity of a downloaded content for offline viewing. By setting the expiry date to a video content that is downloaded for “offline viewing” on users’ devices, you can ensure that it is not indefinitely stored onto your users’ devices. Once the “watch period” expires, the content gets automatically deleted. 

 

Screen Record Protection

Pirates are always on the hunt for breaching any protection mechanism of video content. And screen recording is one of the illegal ways that they resort to. While this can have a significant impact on your subscription volumes, having an OTT platform that has screen record protection feature integrated for your streaming service can neutralize any such breach. 

A Studio-approved DRM keeps your video content insulated from screen recording and even from screenshots of the playback.

Whenever such an action is initiated, it results in a black screen that disables any unauthorized access.
