Testing Wowza VOD Media Security :: To protect VOD contents

I have a requirement from my client where they want a system that can protect their VOD from :

  • Content Leech
  • Illegal Downloading
  • Swf Stealing
And Wowza already have add-on to combat such problem. So I spent my precious early morning hour to setup my Wowza with
Sample of Application.xml inside conf/secure/application.xml,note the secureTokenSharedSecret value
RebuildingJW Player  SWF Player using Apache Ant, Flex SDK to add Security Token and where to put secureTokenSharedSecret value in the Player
Testing Time
Restart Wowza and now turn yourself into bad guys
Trying to use RTMPDUMP to steal the protected video
Trying to play the RTMPE stream in locally hosted JW Player ( to demonstrate Hotlink Denial Module which states only SWF hosted in my domain are allowed to play the video )
Trying to play stream using unauthorized SWF player  to demonstrate Media Security Add On which state only player with correct ShareTokenSecret ar able to play the video
The JWPlayer Embed Code
Testing with Jacksta Movie Stream Downloader ( failed )
Protecting the stream is impossible because there will be another way to steal it, like campture the screen using Cam2Asia, but we can make them harder to steal our precious contents.

  1. revisit with fresh new PC

    1. Dowload Flex SDK
    URL : http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/flexsdk/Downloads
    I’m using the 3.5 version ( http://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/flex/sdk/builds/flex3/flex_sdk_3.5.0.12683_mpl.zip ). Extracted as c:\flex\

    2. Download Apache Ant
    URL : http://ant.apache.org/bindownload.cgi
    Unzip and move to c:\ant\

    3. Add c:\flex\bin and c:\ant\bin into System’s Path ( Windows XP )

    4. Download JW Player
    Open http://developer.longtailvideo.com/trac/browser/trunk/fl5 and download the zip version on the bottom of the page. Unzip and move to c:\fl5\

    5. Edit c:\fl5\build\build.properties and set your environment ( flex SDK path pointing to c:\flex\ and execextension to .exe )

    6. Using DOS prompt, cd into c:\fl5\ and run ant -buildfile\build.xml

    7. If missing JAVA tools.jar, download JDK at ( http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk-6u25-download-346242.html )
