    I took a look at the media security overview but i still don't know what is the best technique to protect stream.
    I just want that it's not possible to see the stream link in firebug or something that will protect my stream before streal.

    Hi there, you need to encrypt the stream with either RTMPE or RTMPS:
    How to get Wowza RTMPE AddOn
    How to get SSL certificates from the StreamLock service(RTMPS)

    And then you need to add SecureToken:
    How to protect RTMP streaming using SecureToken (ModuleSecureToken)

    And then you need to set up hotlink denial:

    If you need more direct help with this, you could post in the find a consultant forum or email

    thanks hotlinking is exactly i was looking for.
    I have enabled hotlinking and rtmpuathentication and now it's possible to see stream only on my domain web site and I am not able to rip stream with rtmpdump.
    And that is exactlty what i need.

    I have one question yet what is advantage of rtmpe streaming ?

    Thank you

    Great! Glad it's working. Thanks for the update.

    You can use RTMPE or RTMPS to encrypt the stream. We recommend RTMPS at present, either using Wowza StreamLock or your own SSL certificate.
