What optional technologies are there for secure video streaming?

I am planning to give a seminar business, but like the idea of protecting y seminar.

I have this URL:

https://www.vdocipher.com/

What other related tools are there for me to compare against this one.

And do I still need a service like GoToMeeting? Are there conflict between some services with this encryption serivce?

Thanks

Hi newbieweb,

What level of security are you looking for?

Your requirements are a little fuzzy...how and why does GoToMeeting enter in the picture? What are you trying to achieve?

Microsoft Stream (https://stream.microsoft.com/en-us/) is a secure video streaming hub. It is the long-term successor to Microsoft Video (https://stream.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/microsoft-stream-and-office-365-video/). You can procure as a standalone service or if you already have Office 365 it should come with your subscription. Skype for Business can achieve all the other requirements you are looking for, e.g. remote meetings, HD Video and Audio conferencing, webinars, etc.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

I guess I was hoping to block people watching my webinar from recording their PC screen.

Do any of these solutions to this?

Once I have videos to sell access to, I will certainly be interested in the Microsoft Stream.

I guess I was mixing these technologies since I did now know what conferencing tool I'd use.

What I need is a complete solution that includes:

- Web conferencing features like:
    - Users can message me
    - Web voice and phone support
    - I can mute or drop people that act badly
    - I can record the video so I can sell access to the video

I would hope I can block being recorded.

And other secure features to prevent piracy.

Yes, you can do all of this:
- Web conferencing features like:
    - Users can message me
    - Web voice and phone support
    - I can mute or drop people that act badly
    - I can record the video so I can sell access to the video
with Skype for Business: https://www.skype.com/en/business/.

In terms of wanting to block people from recording you - that defeats the purpose of sharing content. Ultimately, the fact that you are sharing it through the Internet will be impossible to truly block that content from being shared regardless of the technology. All someone has to do is setup a smartphone or camera recorder on their monitor and make a copy...it won't be the best but all the content will be there captured.

I'd rethink the business model. Maybe setup free teasers to attract users then once they have paid memberships the real content is delivered. But again nothing that I know of will stop them from recording it as I mentioned and circumventing the most elaborate cryptography and security mechanisms. There is even screen recording technology made to circumvent detection which could capture the content directly from the screen. Source protection can be achieved by either Skype for Business or the link you provided.

Now if you are only worried about copying your content for mass distro or distribution rights...that's a different story.

Vdocipher doesn't require an additional service.

Streambox would be an option also.
