Does JW Platform block rtmpdump downloads?

It seems that tech savvy people have been using a program called rtmpdump to hack RTMPe streams for some time. Hulu was initially vulnerable but has since found a way to block attacks by this program.

Does JW Platform similarly block this program? I am paying for JW Platform largely for the content protection.

We don’t develop or test against tools like RTMPdump. We designed the security features of our systems largely to prevent leaching rather than against people downloading, because when people want content badly enough they can always still do a screen capture and not lose too much video quality.
