Windows Media Server Authorization plugin


Streaming large volumes of media over the Internet with Windows Media Server, sooner or later you face the problem - somebody is stealing your content. That's because Windows Media Server has no built-in way to authorize and protect your streams. Anyone can just look into your web pages code, easily find out your media URLs and then just get access to your media contents to re-stream it. This means that users will pay to somebody else but you even though they will use your resources. How can this be avoided?

WMS Auth plugin provides easy, reliable and bullet-proof protection against unauthorized access to your media files.
