What is S3 Media Vault?

If you have S3 media files - like Video, Audio, PDF, etc. - in your Amazon S3 account, and you wish to protect them, and embed them in your WordPress website, membership site or online course, and prevent them from being shared illegally with unauthorized users, then S3MediaVault is the WordPress plugin that can help you do that.


Videos: If you have Video files (mp4) in your S3 account, S3MediaVault can create a beautiful Secure Video Player for your S3 Videos. Your members can watch the videos right on a page on your website, as well as download them if you want them to. You can also create download links for the videos right below the video so that your paying members can download your premium content for offline viewing.


S3MediaVault is also the first-ever WordPress plugin that lets you create encrypted Streaming Video and Streaming Audio.


"Impossible to Download" Streaming Videos: We highly recommend allowing paying members to download your content for offline use. And S3MediaVault very much allows you to create secure download links for all of your content - Video, Audio, PDF, etc. However, for some reason, if you do *not* want anyone to download your videos/audio, then S3MediaVault can do that too. S3MediaVault allows you to create HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) Videos with industrial-strength AES 128-Bit Encryption for both your videos and audio. This is "True Streaming" at its best, with the strongest security available for streaming videos and audio. None of your website visitors, subscribers, or members will be able to download your videos from your website. Even software like Internet Download Manager (IDM) or browser extensions like Video Downloader or Video DownloadHelper will not be able to download your streaming video or audio. S3MediaVault is the only WordPress plugin that can create this level of security. Check out our encrypted streaming demo here.


Multi-Resolution Streaming with "Resolution Switcher" and "Video Stream Optimization": S3MediaVault allows you to create streaming video in multiple resolutions. You can choose the resolutions in the Settings page - 1080p, 720p, 360p, 240p and 144p. And S3MediaVault automatically encodes your video in all of those resolutions with a single click. And when the viewer clicks play on the video, the S3MediaVault video player will automatically choose the lowest-but-best resolution for the viewer based on their internet speed. So, if they're watching from a device which has slow internet speeds (like 3G, or 4G or maybe they're using a service that doesn't offer high-speed internet, or maybe throttles mobile access), the player will serve them the most optimized quality of video. That means, your streaming videos will load quickly for them regardless of their internet speed, saving them on their bandwidth bill, as well as saving you on your AWS bandwidth bill (win/win FTW!).


In addition, just like you can do on YouTube, your viewers will be able to change the resolution to a higher or lower number, and the switch will happen seamlessly without affecting their viewership experience.


Audio: If you have Audio files (mp3, wav, aac) in your S3 account, S3MediaVault can create a stunningly beautiful Secure Audio Player for your S3 Audio. Your members can listen to the audio right on a page on your website, as well as download them (if you want them to, of course).


[NEW] "Impossible to Download" Streaming Audio: We recommend allowing paying members to download your content for offline use. And S3MediaVault very much allows you to create secure download links for all of your content - Video, Audio, PDF, etc.


But if you don't want them to download your audio for whatever reason, S3MediaVault now lets you create "impossible to download" Streaming Audio with the same AES 128-Bit Encryption for your audio files as well (same technology used for Streaming Videos). Your website visitors, subscribers, or members will not be able to download your audio from your website even if they use software like "Internet Download Manager" (IDM) or browser extensions like "Video Downloader".


PDF/Zip/DocIf you have PDF, Doc, Zip, Images or any file with any extension, S3MediaVault can create secure download links for those on any page on your website.


Whatever content you have in your Amazon S3 account, S3MediaVault can securely deliver them in your WordPress website. And all of the links to the Video, Audio & PDF, etc. - are secure, expiring, links. Which means, they won't work if they're passed around or shared illegally with unauthorized users.


Delivering PDF Files: You have 4 different options to deliver PDF files to your members.

1) Download Link: Give them a download link to download the PDF and then they can open it using standard Adobe PDF reader on their device.

2) Give them an option to view the PDF directly on your website - we have a built-in reader for this. Using this option, it's a lot harder for the average person to download the file. So use this option only if you do not want them easily downloading the file.

3) Embed the PDF directly inside a WordPress Page or Post on your website - we have a built-in reader for this. The built-in reader in S3MediaVault is based off of regular Adobe PDF standards. So no special PDF software required.

4) NEW: PDF Watermarking: You can watermark PDFs with the member's own personal information - like Name, Email, Username, and IP (and combinations thereof) - to discourage your members from sharing their personal copy with other unauthorized users. You can configure the Size of the Watermark, its Color, Opacity and Position (Top-Center, Diagonal & Bottom-Center).


Upload the original to your WordPress Media section, or to any location on your website. The original is never modified.


When your member clicks on the link to view the PDF, a copy of your original is made in real-time, the watermark is added to every page, and the new watermarked copy is what your member will see. Which they will then be able to view in the browser, and also download if they wish to, via the PDF download icon.


S3MediaVault works with both Amazon S3 & CloudFront to protect your Videos, Audio & PDF (and files with any extension) in your S3 account. And by also using CloudFront, you can also deliver them at blazing-fast speeds to your website visitors and members, wherever they are located in the world.


S3MediaVault has a Voice Recorder & Voice Mail feature. This offers you the easiest and simplest way to get your Audience to record their Voice and leave you Voicemail directly from your website. Imagine being able to get audio feedback from your audience: Audio Recordings from your Website Visitors, Fans, Followers, Podcast Listeners, YouTube subscribers, Social Media Followers, Current- and Future Customers, Members, Coaching Clients, Challenge Participants, Friends and Family, Business Associates and most importantly, your 1000 True Fans.


S3MediaVault also has Features like Video & Audio Playlists, Play Time and Usage Analytics, ability to show Closed Captions in your videos (aka sub-titles) using .vtt (WebVTT) files for both single videos as well as Video Playlists, Captions for Streaming Audio, ability to do 1-Click Transcriptions of your audio and video (S3MediaVault internally uses Amazon's AWS Transcribe to automate the transcriptions), has the Prettiest Audio Player on the Planet which is super-customizable, In-Video Ads where you can show any kind of ad (HTML, Video, Audio, Text, Image, etc) on your own Videos as well as even on YouTube videos, show a Watermark of either an Image (eg., your Logo) or Text, make the logo or text watermark clickable, etc.


Personalized Dynamic Watermarks: S3MediaVault now offers a cool new feature where you can show a personalized dynamic watermark on the video that your member is watching. And this watermark can show any of the following information - Email, Username, Full Name, IP, Name & Email, or Name/Email/IP - of the viewer who's logged in to WordPress and actually watching the video.


S3MediaVault can also do Sticky, Picture-in-Picture videos (that floats with the viewer as they scroll down the page, like you see on Facebook or Twitter); Pause at CuePoint and show a Custom HTML message below the video only to logged-in users, and when they log in and go back to the same page, the video will now recognize that they're now logged into WordPress, and will play through to the end without any interruptions; Ability to use video files with 4:3 and 9:16 aspect ratio, both Standard and Streaming, without any black bars showing up on either side of the video. You can now choose from 16:9 (default), 4:3 (squarish) and 9:16 (vertical).


You can also securely Embed your Videos, Audio and PDF's on any third-party website - could be your own WordPress website, or a non-WordPress website, like Wix, Medium, Squarespace, etc. Install S3MV on a WordPress site, then embed your secure S3/CloudFront video on any third-party site using iFrame embed code (just like you can do with YouTube videos, except, S3MediaVault also makes your content secure and will not allow anyone else to embed the same code on their website).


[NEW] 360 Degree Videos: S3MediaVault is the first and only WordPress Plugin to support Standard 360 Degree videos, 360 Cube Map, 360 TB Equirectangular, 360 Equi-Angular Cubemap (EAC), and 180 Degree videos - that are also Secure and with support for S3 and CloudFront.


If you have Video, Audio or PDF, and you are using WordPress, no other WordPress plugin even comes close to the Automation, Power, Ease-of-Use, Features, Pricing - and most importantly, Support - offered by S3MediaVault.

"The S3MediaVault (S3MV) plugin is maybe the plugin that's been doing this the longest. I'm not sure I can recall a plugin that has been in the game longer than this one. I wrote about it once before.

This works for all your normal image files as well as your video. But it also is fantastic at delivering other files (digital downloads, PDF files, etc).

For people who don't just want to use S3 to speed up their site, but also to protect their files, S3MV does a fantastic job at it by encrypting video, for example. If you've ever been worried that someone would pay to access your protected files and then turn around and sell them on their own site, you don't have to worry anymore.

Other than when you're setting things up, you'll never have to log into AWS. Everything is managed from the WordPress plugin."

S3MediaVault Demos

Amazon S3 Audio Player (screenshot)

The image above is a screenshot of the S3MediaVault Audio Player for Amazon S3 & CloudFront. The demo it is configured to securely play the 1st episode of my private Audio Book, "Podcasting Confessions". The audio file has been securely stored on Amazon S3, delivered through Amazon CloudFront, and the audio will only play from this web site. Even if you do a view source of the file and try to grab the direct MP3 URL, that link will not work after 15 minutes from a different computer or device (email it to yourself and try to open the link from a different device after 15 minutes - it won't work). Of course, you can configure the 15 minute expiration to be as little as 1 minute, or more, if you wish.

"I am using S3 Media Vault for my Membership Site and it works absolutely fantastic! I can't believe how easy it is. It works flawlessly! I’ve even tried to break in and steal my own videos, as a test, and I was unable.

The video player is beautiful and extremely easy to work with in my Wordpress site. I’ve decided to use this plugin on all of my sites, because with every other solution I’ve tried, I’ve found the “members-only” content I created being downloaded and used by people who weren’t supposed to have access.


This plugin is light years beyond the closest competitor!


One of the best decisions I’ve made in regards to protecting content. After having such success here, it has made me check out some of the other products the team has created, and I’m considering purchasing them!!!


Well done! Thank you so much!"

"I purchased S3MediaVault after looking at virtually all similar plugins on the internet and found none that offered as many features as the S3MediaVault.


When I read through the list of features, the write-up spoke directly to my needs and it appeared Ravi created this plugin after listening to what I wanted.

I have used this plugin for several months now and I can confidently testify that it has functioned as advertised. It has never conflicted with any other plugin within my Admin Dashboard, and has worked harmoniously with all the themes I have used on my website.

The support is personal, friendly, prompt and efficient. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending this plugin to everyone who intends to store video and audio files on Amazon S3, for secure streaming on their WordPress site."
