Preventing media from being downloaded
We do not offer a solution for preventing a visitor from downloading clips or other media published on your VOD/AOD space.
The only viable solution would be to use DRM and encrypted files, but we have no plans to support this on our servers at the present time.
The restrictions that we offer, and which you may enable from the admin interface, are all file access restrictions (geoip, etc) but once the client has permissions to access a given media, downloading and streaming are technically identical and cannot be distinguished. Our restrictions do however allow you to prevent other sites from re-using your videos directly, and they will be denied access.
Note that any video downloaded from its actual address will only have an embedded logo if you have chosen to embed the logo at the time of fixing (encoding). Displaying the logo via the player (video playback) will not allow the media to retain this logo when it is downloaded.
