Creating a safe non-downloadable stream.

Hi guys,

I'm editing a documentary and need to show a pretty advanced edit to a few people over the internet. Aside from using a watermark and/or confidentiality agreement is there a way to stream the video to someone the way they wouldn't be able to download it e.g. via browser plugin?

There are capture apps available so you can RIP the video right from your monitor as you watch it, so no, you can't stop people from getting a copy if they really want one.

What I would do is make sure your video is password protected ( i.e. Vimeo Pro ) or set up a website where they have to log-in to watch the video, which will help to keep track of who is watching your video, for how long, and when. ( Vimeo Pro has the same stats )
