Default Prevent RTMP FLV capture/download


Is there a way to prevent capture software like:


From capturing my FLV streams? I would like to keep access to my FLV streams to registered members of my site. I am new to action script and FLV streaming, I did everything I could to prevent users from gaining direct access to my embedded streaming URLs (which reside on separate un-secure server), but this software can record and download any of flv streams and tell the user what the direct streaming url is.

Can I stop this? Is there anyway to protect a FLV stream?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated,

Thank You.

Unfortunately, as far as I know there is no way to fully prevent this.

Even if you were to prevent some of them (like for example code that would check the user-agent and only serve the video if its a browser and not a catcher....not exactly sure HOW to do this though), you are still vulnerable to software that just records it off the cache rather than grabbing the stream itself.

So my guess would be no, at least not with FLVs.
