How to protect playback of separate groups of files from the same VOD application?
I know Wowza Streaming Engine supports token protection for each VOD application. Though I need to protect each groups of files (maybe in subfolders) of the same VOD application with its own different token. Is there a way to achieve this on Wowza, maybe with some existing module, or do I have to write my own module?
So the hash should be unique for each stream. You would just need to amend the $stream value for each stream you request. If your files are in sub-folders under the defined storage dir then that can be included in the $stream, e.g.
$stream = "vod/myfolder/mp4:sample.mp4";
We have a sample PHP script that can be used as a basis for calculating and optionally playing embedding a player for secure token streams. Feel free to request it if required.
