Hello Rita,

With our products you may allow HLS (m3u8) streams and deny progressive download at the same time. You need to create 2 separate rules as part of WMSAuth hotlinking protection.
Please check this page for details on hotlink protection: http://blog.wmspanel.com/2013/11/nimble-streamer-protect-hotlinking-domain-lock.html

I think you got it wrong.
I've configured the hotlink protection. I need to block the download of the video, you know?
I do not want people using the IDM of Download Helper to download my videos.

I'm using video in mp4.
example: http://ip/vod/example.mp4
its possible, block this content of download?

You may stream the file in m3u8 - which is HLS - and forbid access to files download. WMSPanel can do that.
E.g. this
http://ip/vod/example.mp4/playlist.m3u8
will be playing but this
http://ip/vod/example.mp4
will not.

However, the M3U8 does not show the video loading.
Already mp4 shows.
Its possible, enable video loading in HLS?

For HLS (m3u8) you need a web player which is capable of HLS, like JWPlayer.

but even so, it does not show the video loading.

You need Premium edition of JWPlayer for that. If it is - please send me the URL of the page to my email sales@wmspanel.com
