In this topic, you will learn about the content security options offered by Video Cloud. Video Cloud offers several forms of content security, some of which can be used together.
DRM (Digital Rights Management) protects your video content by encrypting the video data and unlocking it based on license policies. When the video content is loaded into a Brightcove player, the player calls back to a licensing server and obtains permission to play the video. This transaction is transparent to viewers.
If your account is enabled for Dynamic Deliveryand it has been enabled for DRM by your account manager, all the videos newly uploaded will be protected. If you wish to apply protection to existing DD videos, please contact Brightcove Support.
If your account is enabled for DRM and you want to deliver some titles without DRM, set the drm_disabled flag via CMS API to true using an Update Video request.
