Preventing Screen Recording and Screenshots on Cloudflare Stream content

I have videos stored on Cloudflare and am streaming them to my React website using Stream : https://github.com/cloudflare/stream-react
I want to prevent screen recording and screenshots when the videos are being played. How do i do this?

Hi @smriti030202,

How would you prevent someone using an overlay or simply using a physical phone/camera to record the video?

Would Watermarks help?

Thank you.

Hi! Obviously I will not be able to prevent users from recording content through a physical phone or camera, but I believe that blocking screenshots/screen recording facilities, or showing a black screen instead of the video when such applications are open would prevent a majority of the people from recording videos. Taking Udemy for example, when the videos are playing and you try to take a screenshot or screen record content, the video turns black and stops playing. I can still take pictures/videos from my phone if I want, but the first level of protection is something essential to my website. I would like to know how i can get this done

Hi @smriti030202,

Please check this article here.

For a motivated pirate, however, any content that appears on a computer screen is vulnerable to theft. This is a problem across the industry.

For Cloudflare Stream, only watermarks are available.
You may need to look for other video providers for a more specialised solution.
Please consider raising a feature request in the Stream community thread.

Thank you.
