FingerPrinting / Alias Overlay

Geoff 2019-08-28 06:59:24 UTC in WMSPanel functionality

Hello,
We have multiple aliases with clients who pull using that alias. But it appears that 1 user is leaking streams. The only way to find out who is to disable 1 by 1 until the leak stops and there can be 5 mins of buffering sometimes.

With xtremecodes you can print a fingerprint ID and it displays the line number or in nimbles case the alias.

Would you be able to add this feature, i think it would be very popular

Best Regards, Geoff

Hello!
Could you specify the way you determine leaking, is there abnormal number of connections or bandwidth increase?
It's possible to get number of connections for each aliased stream via WMSPanel Stream Report.

Hi,
Its just 1 stream leak at a time, but we use multiple aliases. but the printing the overall of the alias would be a great feature security wise

Also to add to the above: our logo is on some streams and it was seen on youtube, so thats how we know it was leaked

Hello Geoff,

Do you mean "leaking" is when multiple clients play stream from your server(s) using the same alias (or multiple streams with the same alias)?

I did not get the idea of printing line number or fingerprint ID in xtremecodes.

As an option you can use Transcoder to insert different stream logo/ID for each client, but I guess that is not the way you meant when explained how xtremecodes indicates the leak.

Thank you.

Hello, i would like to re-visit this if possible.
say for example we have 20 aliases. each customer has their own alias / own unique url. at some point a customer gets hacked or they illegally re-sell the stream. i would like to be able to "fingerprint". xtremecodes has this. basically what it does is it then overlays the stream for a few seconds the aliases on all the streams, so i can tell or find out which alias / client is allowing it to re-stream etc

does that make sense. its a way of identifying each individual stream where it comes from

Thankyou
