WordPress Media Protection extension built on Video.js HTML5 video player library offers a simple, fast and secure way to embed and protect both your WordPress videos and audios.
This extension comes in handy when you want to allow your paid users to view your videos online but at the same time stop them from downloading the videos.
- No more "inspect elements" to direct access and share the video file URLs
- Stop most popular video downloaders including Internet Download Manager (IDM) from downloading your videos
WordPress self-hosted Videos & Audios
Protect your WordPress videos and audios link by expiring its private download links every 5 seconds. Once the previous private links expired, the extension auto-generates new one that keeps the video playing smoothly.
The extension comes with a friendly UI - compatible with Gutenberg WordPress block editor. It's simple and easy to embed your videos and audios to any posts, pages and content widget you want. You don’t even need to use nor understand any shortcode. It’s automatically embedded on your content.
We recommend you not to self-host your videos whose sizes are bigger than 100 MB. There would be a performance issue unless your hosting server is really powerful. Please host these videos on Amazon S3 and use HLS method instead.
WordPress HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) Videos
Flash is dying. It's time to use a much better video protection method with HTTP Live Streaming (HSL). HLS offers better playing quality, experience, and protection against tools like IDM as well.
Your video files will be splits into short & small chunks called MPEG2 Transport Stream with the .ts file extension. Each chuck is encrypted with a special algorithm. So even if video downloaders can somehow download them, they can't be opened.
- Videos and audios hosted on Amazon S3 bucket.
- It won’t slow down your website nor take up your hosting server bandwidth
- Powerful shortcode builder makes it super easy to customize and embed media into content
- Work on pages, posts, custom post type or custom widget area
- Work on all devices including PCs, tablets and mobile phones
- Built-in HTML5 video player – no Flash required
