Domain restricted view of the content is what is lacking in with screencast.com . Having this feature allows only user to play a video if it comes from a specific domain. Say I have an education site where I have contents [ text and video]. I control the access to my sight using highly authenticated mechanism . Now I wanted to make sure that they can play the video only if they logged into my site [ They cannot grab the URL and run it from anywhere] or they cannot share the url .Is there any feature planned in the near future ?

Thanks

Hi Jay,
Thank you for your suggestion. Viewing restrictions are a common request. Other restrictions based on date/time and number of views, to name a few, are also being considered. We will keep you posted on our progress.

Best regards,
Dirk Frazier

I suggested this idea for long time ago. It is not yet there. But this is very important feature for commercial video.

For example I want to sell my video tutorials on my site. And I have means of protection of access video pages there. But i need that video that I embed be protected from playing only from allowed domains. Just like on Vimeo. it is very important video for all who involved in education and try to make a little money to return investment made into Camtasia and Screencast.com.

Hi serhioromano,
I've merged your suggestion in with Jay's just to better track the need for this enhancement. I'll be merging other, similar request as well. Just so you know, we hear you, and I've changed that status of this request to "under consideration". Updates will be posted here as we continue to make improvements. Thanks again for your comments and suggestions!

Can I hide the "embed URL"?

What I want to use screencast for, is to store and stream the videos which ONLY paid users logged into my site can access.

If I embed the files having "hidden" privacy setting, people can still find out the URL and then access them without paying for it.

Is there any way I can hide the URL so that people can only access the videos from within my application?

Vimeo Plus has this feature that I have been looking for. I would like screencast to consider the same. It is called domain level privacy. You can select the domain where you video can be embedded. So if someone takes your embed code, they can't embed on their website. it also wont allow people to watch the video if they have the direct url.

https://vimeo.com/plus
"Choose exactly where your videos can be embedded on the web. There are no limits to the number of websites you can choose and you'll always have complete control of your video outside of Vimeo. You even have the option to completely hide your video on Vimeo.com so it will only show up on the sites you want it to, and nowhere else."

Please add domain whitelist feature top Screencast.com embedding options.

It would be nice if we can restrict embedding so that it can only happen on our site. We do not want our visitors to embed our videos on their own blogs.

Thank you for considering this idea.

or, they can record the screen at fullscreen and produce it to flash or mp4 and trot into the sunset with it and hand it out. THere`s no ultimate safety, streaming media being what it is. you will stop a lot of impulse downloaders, but they usually only keep it for themselves to watch later on their phones, but the real pirate wants to resell your content can do so by recording either with screen recording or a camcorder. Just saying, its difficult to stop completely. youtube also have a paid subscription service but it may still be restricted to the U.S

if your concern is only embedding on fake sites, and streaming from your web server then thats possible to stop by preventing embedding.

I agree that a "restrict by domain" capability would be useful.

Note to TJ Chambers re: Vimeo Plus. I have both a Vimeo Pro account and a Screencast.com Pro account. I refuse to use the Vimeo Pro account for any corporate videos due to the Terms & Conditions Vimeo requires. In short, those Terms & Conditions state that I surrender control of my content to Vimeo when I post it to their site, and they are free to do whatever they want with it. I contacted their legal department and asked since I purchased their most expensive account type, Pro, designed specifically for corporations, if they didn't have a different T&C for that. They replied back with a standard form letter - nope.

I'm sticking with Screencast.com.
