Hello, I can block the videos mp4, against download?
I want to block users to download my videos, are using all my server.

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:

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
will be playing but this
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
