Best way to embed videos  en

Author: Duncan B.
Visited 349, Followers 1, Shared 0  

Currently I upload my videos to vimeo and then embed them in my website using the responsive code from https://embedresponsively.com/ (Thanks André).

I do this so I have controlover who can download and who can embed the videos. But it may not be the best way of doing things. 

I am shortly going to be uploading a series of videos that I want to embed on my website but I want to make sure no one can download them or embed them anywhere else without my permission.

I would be grateful for thoughts on this. The simpler and the more bullet proof, the better!

Hello.Does this suit you?

"I want to make sure no one can download them or embed them anywhere else without my permission." - Probably, none of the methods will give you a 100% guarantee. If someone wants to steal your video, he will do it.

Thanks Aleksej - that was my thread to start with :)

That works fine for the embedding from vimeo etc., but I was wondering if anyone had a better solution. I know you can work with video inside X5 but I have never done that so I don't know how secure that leaves the videos.

I know that anyone can steel one if they wan to - but I just want to make it a bit difficult and to be able to show that, if they have "stolen" the video, they should not have done!

Here are the materials on embed vimeo video.

"but I just want to make it a bit difficult and to be able to show that, if they have "stolen" the video, they should not have done!" - Domain-level privacy. This will make it a bit more difficult to insert your video on other people's sites.

I give access to my video lessons only after payment (https://magazin.aleksius.com/en/website-x5-tutorials-creating-a-website-from-scratch). Pre-give one of the lessons for free.

But it still does not give any guarantee that someone will not steal the video.

Thanks again Aleksej. I already use Vimeo and am familiar with the settings - I just wondered if anyone used a different method. 

Is your link sent out automatically after payment?

For the most part, if you can see the video, you can ”steal” the video. All you need is a screen-capture program that can record whatever is playing on the monitor.

Apple has some highly advanced properties built into their video steams to prevent people from stealing Hollywood movies. If you attempt to use a screen-capture program with Apple movies, all you get is the audio, accompanied by a black screen.

"Aleksay - how do you do the immediate link after payement? What method do you use?" - magazin.aleksius.com on Joomla not on WebSite X5.

In WebSite X5 you can do it for the sale of digital products and PayPal.
