Protect WordPress Videos & Audios

Protect WordPress Videos 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.


  • Protect your WordPress video's 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
  • Friendly UI; simple and easy to embed your videos 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
  • Built-in HTML5 video player – no Flash required
  • Work on all devices including PCs, tablets and mobile phones

Amazon S3 Integration

You now can protect your videos hosted on Amazon S3 buckets by simply inserting its file URL into our shortcode.

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 get the video file URL
  • Stop most popular video downloaders including Internet Download Manager from downloading your videos

Disclaimers: although there is no sure way to protect your videos against all programs and video downloaders, our method will make it harder for most average people to steal your valuable videos.

  • There is a known issue with our plugin if you're using a cache server or third party services such as CloudFlare
  • We recommend you not to self-host your videos whose sizes are bigger than 100MB. There would be a performance issue unless your hosting server is really powerful. Please host these videos on Amazon S3 instead.

HTTP Live Streaming (HLS)

We're going to implement and release a much better video protection method using HLS streaming. HLS offers better playing experience and protection against tools like IDM as well.

Here's an demo:

The video was very well protected! I have tested many other solutions to protect videos and yours is by far the most advanced one! I want this plugin to be one of my huge pitches in the upcoming months.
