    Ive looked at that article and followed the instructions accept for the part about wirecast
    <Property>
    <Name>domainLock</Name>
    <Value>localhost,mysite.com</Value>
    </Property>
    <Property>
    <Name>AllowEncoder</Name>
    <Value>Wirecast</Value> <!--FM, Wirecast-->
    </Property>

    The Value "FM" works in most cases. It is what the userAgent for FMLE 2.5, 3, 3.2 start with, and Wirecast and other encoders often use the same userAgent. If not, look in the access log and you see the userAgent of the encoder. Copy that to AllowEncoder Property Value.

    So once ive filled in all the details on my application.xml how does that stop other sites leeching the stream exactly?

    Can you explain what you mean by "leeching" exactly?
    The hotlink denial module denies other websites from hosting your .swf file on their website.

    Depending on what you mean by "leeching" this might not be what you need.

    Hi,

    You will have to add the host name of the website hosting your player in this property as well:
    <Property>
    <Name>domainLock</Name>
    <Value>localhost,mysite.com</Value>
    </Property>
