Secure live stream

I’m preparing a live stream. Access to live stream will be possible only by logging in after making a payment.
I’d like to protect the streaming so that the person who gets the page code (simply see the page’s source), couldn’t copy and download the code with the server’s IP and the name of the stream. So I have some questions:
- Is it possible that JW Player only allow to view livestream on a specific domain i.e. (so if someone copy the code on another page, he can’t watch the stream)
- Does JW Player provide any other safeguards to prevent people using the player on other site?

Best regards

We currently do not support the use of domain based restrictions at the moment. You could however potentially block domain access via the crossdomain.xml file. At the moment we do support the use of geo-blocking which is regional not domain specific. In regards to protecting content, you could essentially use URL-signing which is a token based method or AES encryption which applies a key that the player decodes. You can find a full article breakdown here:
