Hello. There is a well-known tool out there to easily download the video through the .mpd or .m3u8 files (for example, a video on the Cloudflare stream advertisement page). I’m working on a project that wants to prevent users from downloading video content.
I have read ‘Securing Cloudflare Stream videos’ (Securing Cloudflare Stream videos – Cloudflare Help Center and https://developers.cloudflare.com/stream/viewing-videos/securing-your-stream) and want to know whether it could prevent the download from such tool. From my understanding, it doesn’t deter the download process once the user obtains a .mpd or .m3u8 file (intercepted easily). In addition, if the user manages to find this workaround, will the extra bandwidth be charged to the bill?
There are other video streaming players in the market that implements AES-128 key rotation for HLS stream, which expires in a very short period (<10s). This seems to prevent such a tool to download video streams well. Does Cloudflare stream offer something similar to this?
