Encrypted Video Streaming: How It Protects Your Videos

Does your online video streaming platform secure your videos successfully?

It has become important to secure your live and on-demand video content from the pirated eyes.

In this article, we will learn how VideoEncrypt protects your videos while encrypting your video streaming.

The main encrypted video streaming protocols used by most of the video streaming platforms are:-

  • HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) with AES-128
  • Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTPS (DASH)
  • Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) 
  • RTMP Encrypted (RTMPE)

HLS encryption with AES-128 bit encryption is most widely used and considered as the most secure streaming protocol. However certain security features have been built into these streaming protocols and these videos encryption is not sufficient to protect your content. 

Partial encryption of streaming content and open key exchange for decryption are the main flaws that lie in these encrypted video streaming.

Many tools are widely available over the internet that can even download encrypted videos and makes your video content easily available for everyone. That’s why VideoEncrypt is here and comes with advanced features to secure your streaming video even better.

How Encrypted Video Streaming Works

Now, we will see a complete workflow that video DRM uses to protect your video streaming. Online video streaming needs features that have to be beyond the line to protect your video streaming. 

Encrypted Video


The video contents can be uploaded by any medium directly to the server using your own purchase account. VideoEncrypt supports all formats of the videos and can encrypt your videos in less time.


Once you upload your video contents, your contents are encrypted with industry-standard of AES-128 encryption and on multiple bitrates. In this stage, the encrypted streaming of the uploaded video takes place and converted into an encrypted format. Later, video is transcoded at multiple bitrates to optimize the quality when the viewers access on their network.


The encrypted videos are stored securely on the web storage and this provides you a double layer of protection against the hackers. When the users enter the access key only then it provides them your video contents.


Authentication of your videos is very important. VideoEncrypt generates a one-time dynamic video URLs for the user and these URLs can be accessed only through custom video codes for each single video stream. This helps in restricting multiple browser playback of the same video and your videos can not be easily downloaded.


When a user accesses your video content then the encrypted content is decrypted inside the player with the specific private key. A private key transfer between the website and our API restricts all the hacks of your encrypted contents and delivers seamless streams to the users. VideoEncrypt keeps security to your video contents up to date with regular updates in the authentication.
