Copy Protect Video Extension for Joomla
This module enables the insertion of CopySafe
Video files into
Joomla posts and pages from the Joomla
Without this module adding HTML to activate
a browser plugin would be an arduous task, even for experienced web
developers. But that task has been greatly simplified.
Simply upload the protected video file that was created by the CopySafe Video Encoder, nominate the protection settings to use, then the editor will place the generated shortcode at the cursor position. Your protection settings can be modified at any time by simply editing the shortcode in HTML view.
- Copy protect videos displayed online.
- Safe from PrintScreen and all screen capture software.
- Videos cannot be retrieved from browser cache.
- Domain-locked videos cannot be displayed elsewhere.
- Videos stored on the server are safe from webmasters.
- Encrypted videos cannot be downloaded or scraped.
How this Joomla Extension Works
When editing a page or post, you may insert the short code by clicking on the [Video] icon above the HTML editor toolbar where the cursor was last placed in the text area. After uploading or selecting an existing video class file (from a previous upload), you can then nominate the security settings to use for the page or post. Different pages can use different security and display settings:
|Width||Width in pixels of the video viewing area|
|Height||Height in pixels of the video viewing area|
|Allow Remote||Prevent computers using remote or virtual access|
Default Settings for this Joomla Extension
Default settings can be applied to all CopySafe Video pages and posts. You can also select from 3 modes, which can be changed at any time:
|Demo Mode||Allows use of the Module without requiring a CopySafe Video license|
|Licensed||For users with the CopySafe Video software for encrypting images|
|Debug Mode||Displays the HTML for object tag instead of displaying the image|
CopySafe Video Licensing
The CopySafe Video Encoder enables the encryption of videos for desktop viewing and distribution by email, download and disk with copy protection options and the ability to assign DRM control. It can also encrypt protected video for display online, from a web page, using the web browser plugin included with the ArtisBrowser.
Every CopySafe Video Encoder license provides for unlimited use and includes free DRM hosting to manage subscribers. But it does not include licensing for online display using Domain Lock. If the Encoder is unlicensed videos may be limited to 2 minutes play time and can only be viewed from http://localhost. ArtistScope polices the use of domain lock in CopySafe Video by requiring registration for each web site.
CopySafe Video Plugin Detection
When CopySafeVideo is used on a web page, if a visitor does not have the CopySafe Video browser DLL installed for Artisbrowser, they are redirected for download and install instructions. This Joomla Module includes everything needed for this task including download and error pages.
