    Default password protected streaming

    I have been asked about the possibility of password protecting some content on our Wowza server (3.5, flash and HLS streaming) After searching through the forums, it's seems to me that the best way to do it would be to create a password protected secure site that would allow access to a player configured with RTMPS and secure token that accesses a streaming application on the Wowza server configured with RTMPS, secure token and hotlink protection. Is this the best way to do this or is there a better or easier method? Thanks.

    Barry,

    Yes, that will work. Also take a look these examples/approaches:

    You might leverage your web based authentication in a Flash RTMP client by using actionscript ExternalInterface to grab credentials from a cookie in the player's HTML container.
