VLC is not supposed to be run as root. Sorry

Today I need to install VLC Media player on CentOS 5.x to capture remote live event from VLC client as HTTP stream.

So, I have installed that using # yum install vlc

But VLC can not be run as root privileged user 🙁

# vlc
VLC is not supposed to be run as root. Sorry.
If you need to use real-time priorities and/or privileged TCP ports
you can use vlc-wrapper (make sure it is Set-UID root first and
cannot be run by non-trusted users first).

To run VLC from command line we need to edit VLC file located below
# vi /usr/bin/vlc

To edit “/usr/bin/vlc” search for geteuid and replace it with getppid using vi editor’s command

:%s/geteuid/getppid/ (here geteuid is search term and getppid is replace one)

If we still face issues with stream capture, we can use mplayer 😉

# mplayer http://stream_link -dumpstream -dumpfile outFileName

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.

 

Compile or build flowplayer or jwplayer to create secure token for wowza server


Hits: 10477  

I think you already read our last article for wowza mediasecurity addon package

There are 2 methods to put secure token for video players like flowplayer or jwplayer…

1. Token inside javascript code (shared secret)
2. Token inside flowplayer or jwplayer source code (compile the token inside the plugin)

The shared secret known by the server and the client only. If you really want to keep this secret you need to follow 2nd option 😉

We need to install following software in order to work on Flowplayer Flash plugins:

Flex SDK

Java Development Kit (JDK) & Apache Ant


Flow Player

You can find all steps to compile Flow Player with secure plugin here
http://flowplayer.org/documentation/developer/development-environment.html

flowplayer.core/build.properties

# you need to adjust following to point to your Flex SDK
flex3dir=D:/flex_sdk

# change following to point to .exe files when running on Windows
mxmlc_bin= D:/flex_sdk/bin/mxmlc.exe
compc_bin= D:/flex_sdk/bin/compc.exe
asdoc_bin= D:/flex_sdk/bin/asdoc.exe

devkit-dir=../flowplayer.devkit
plugins.dir=../

site.dir=D:/flowplayer/deploy
js.deploy.dir=${site.dir}/deploy/js
deploy.dir=${site.dir}/content/swf

Modify Secure Token here… flowplayer.securestreaming/src/actionscript/org/flowplayer/securestreaming/Config.as

private var _token:String = “#hv%h0#s@1”; // token that used for wowza server security 😉

Building the player
CD (change directory) to the flowplayer.core and execute ant at the command prompt:

> ant

If you see “BUILD SUCCESSFUL”, the build was successful and you have a working player located at flowplayer.core/build/flowplayer.swf.

JW Player

You can find all steps to compile JW Player with secure token here http://developer.longtailvideo.com/trac/browser/trunk/fl5/README.txt


So, now the question is how to protect SWF (with token) files from hotlink, theft, download and Leech
