Made for Amazon S3 & CloudFront: It can securely deliver files via both Amazon S3 and CloudFront
CloudFront Integration: Blazing-fast media loading speeds for your members. Up to 45% faster loading speeds for videos and audio compared to using just S3 alone.
“True Streaming” Videos: Impossible-to-download, Secure Video Streaming for your most important videos that you may not want even your paying members to be able to download.
HLS Video Streaming support: “HTTP Live Streaming”, aka HLS, is a media streaming protocol for delivering visual and audio media online. It was created by Apple in 2009. In v11, S3MediaVault.com currently supports HLS Video Streaming.
Practically “Impossible” Download: Using Amazon’s MediaConvert API’s and HLS Streaming, your MP4 video is chopped up into short, 10 second chunks, and then delivered online in chunks to the viewer. And the MP4 video becomes a flowing stream with the extension M3U8. And because the video is never downloaded to the browser, but streamed in real-time, it is really hard to download it to your computer, and you can’t do it even using browser extensions like VideoDownloader, for eg. Only way to download the video is if you create a separate download link, because you want your members to download the video. Or they would have to use a screen-capture tool. So basically, it’s practically impossible to download, unless you want them to.
You can also use the Standard S3MediaVault protection of your videos (“progressive downloads”). You don’t have to necessarily use True Streaming.

If you have a WordPress website, then what I discuss below is arguably the best way to secure your files so that they're only accessible through your website, and prevent them from being passed around and used by unauthorized users, including search engines:
1) Store your files on Amazon S3.
4) This is not a true Digital Rights Management (DRM) solution - so once someone downloads your Video, Audio or PDF to their computer, you no longer have control over it.
But that's OK because 99% of the abuse happens because...
a) it's not locked down,
b) because people can easily pass around links,
c) it gets mistakenly indexed in search engines,
d) someone shared it illegally in a forum, Facebook group, etc.
5) Your actual paying users/members will rarely, if ever, illegally share stuff that they've paid for. Even if they do, it may be with a friend or a family member.
6) Those who pay for any content online, usually have a good mindset and ethics. They're not going out there looking to screw you (the creator) and pirate your content like crazy and make you lose your income.
7) Don't lock it down so hard that you make things difficult for 99% of your ethical paying customers, just so you can make things difficult for the unethical, unscrupulous 1% who will try to steal from you regardless - taking screencasts, screenshots, looking in black-hat forums and warez websites for passwords and crackz etc.
8) Focus on the paying members, and giving them maximum value for their money, rather than focus on the minority of losers who will never pay for anything, and will try their best to pirate stuff.
