How does the Encryption work?

Our CDN servers deliver encrypted content to our Video Player which knows how to decrypt the content because it has the decryption key. If there is a middleware device or software like some of the popular video downloaders and your content gets downloaded by them, the same won't be playable due to the fact that the key to decrypt it is missing.

How does the Hotlinking works?

We offer 2 hotlinking protections: Cookie & IP. Both can be enforced so if someone manages to capture the delivery URL and tries to connect 3rd party player/service, the delivery URL will not be valid due to this protection so user cannot simply hotlink to it.
