What is Secure Video Sharing?

If you want your video’s to be shared securely, you can enable Clevercast’s temporary URL functionality. This ensures that all your private videos are only accessible using a secure streaming URL. These URLs can be dynamically generated by your website, CMS application or mobile app using a secret passphrase. They expire after a certain period of time, as determined by your client application.

You should use secure video sharing if you don’t want your videos to be downloaded or shared with third parties. After the given period of time expires, the video shall no longer be accessible by the viewer. Your client application can easily generate the secure URL parameters (secure token and time of expiry) and add them to the video’s embed code or use our player API.

Secure video sharing works in our HTML5 player on all platforms and devices. It is fully compatible with adaptive streaming in multiple resolutions, so your audience will always get the best possible viewing experience. It can also be combined with Clevercast’s interactive video functionality.


Secure video sharing can be used to allow your enterprise video only to be viewed by company employees. It is also perfectly suited for teams that need to review and comment on video, and for distributing video containing delicate information that should not be publicly accessible.

You can also use secure video sharing to launch your own pay-per-view or subscription-based video channel. In this case, your client application only renders the secure videos to paid viewers or subscribers. This way, you can make sure that your premium content is not downloaded or shared on other websites.
