How to use Hot-link protection with nimble and stalker portal?

Our hotlink protection requires you to sign media URLs with signature which includes a password and a few more things like IP address.
We're not falimiar with the Stalker but If you can make such signature there, then Nimble streams can definitely be protected that way via the portal.

Give us more details if there are still some concerns so we could advise.

Thank you.

This is a very common portal and is used with the very popular MAG250 box.
Stalker portal has instructions for setting up temp URLs with WoWZA:

And for NGINX secure Link:

It also works with Flussonic.

But we can't work out if we can use it with Nimble without modifying the Stalker portal source code?

Setting link to include signatures will most likely require additional module creation. However, you can ask people from Stalker if it's true or not.

If i could get the some IPs from from stalker that i want to allow, could I feed them into nimble through the API?

Yes, please heck this page:

and then other calls from WMSAuth API to add allow rule if you haven't added it yet.
