JW Player + Cloudfront Streaming with Signed URL + iPhone, iPad

Hi everyone. I'm building a membership site, with private content, and I'm using Cloudfront Streaming with Signed URL to avoid people downloading and distributing content.

Everything is working fine, except it doesn't work with iPad and iPhone.

I read a lot of things here, but I couldn't find any solution.

My embed code is:

<p><script src="">

<div id="myElement">Loading the player...</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
file: "rtmp://",
width: 640,
height: 360

Does anyone can help me?

Best regards,

RTMP is, by definition, a Flash format. There's no Flash on a mobile device. Period. You need to provide an MP4 file as a fallback.

Hi MisterNeutron! Thanks for your answer.

But, doing this, what is the advantage of using Cloudfront RTMP? Anyone could just look at source code and download directly.

It seems to be useless.. :/

An HLS stream with a signed URL would work. Are you able to get one from your streaming service?
