The player below is a working demo of our Amazon S3 and CloudFront HLS Encrypted Streaming Video Player. In this demo, it is configured to securely play an Encrypted Streaming Video.
That means, there’s no longer a .mp4 file. Instead, it’s now a .m3u8 file (aka “Playlist”) that has been chopped up into a number of smaller chunks – aka “segments” – basically multiple, partial pieces of the video, which have the .ts file extension.
On top of that, the stream has been encrypted using industrial-strength AES 128-bit Encryption. Which means, even if someone, somehow manages to download the video segments, and tries to manually put them together, or uses some slick video downloading software like Internet Download Manager (IDM) or a browser extension like VideoDownloader, they won’t be able to play the video.
That’s how strong the video encryption of S3MediaVault is.[Read more…] about Streaming Video Demo with AES 128-Bit Encryption
