2.3 Protecting Flash and movie media
Flash and movie media can be protected on web pages protected by
CopySafe Web by simply adding a small Copysafe Web image to the
page. For the best security the following needs to be applied:
- If using Flash it needs to be streamed from Flash Media Server.
- If using movie files like AVI, MPG, WMV then they should be streamed
from Windows Media Server.
- The embedded player needs to be configured to prevent opening
the movie directly.
- By requiring that your visitors use the ASPS Web Browser it may
not be necessary to stream the media.
Additional precautions are possible in settings from the media server
end to prevent direct and/or unauthorized access to the media.
Flash Media Server
Flash Media Server is available from Adobe and can be licensed for
any type of web server. The unregistered version will support up
to 10 simultaneous connections.
Windows Media Server
Windows Media Server is provided as part of the Windows Server installation
but may not be installed by default. To install Windows Media Server
simply use the Add/remove options from the Control Panel.
ASPS Web Browser
In all cases requiring that visitors use the ArtistScope
Web Browser will close all avenues for copy/save and exploits
that are provided by generic (popular) web browsers.
