Ooyala, a provider of end-to-end video platform applications and services, has announced the integration of token-based authentication for the delivery of premium video content online. Unlike other well-known video platforms, Ooyala allows publishers to restrict the delivery of a video based on pre-defined user and server-side rules.
Ooyala offers several ways to protect content including support of Encrypted Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMPE), Geographic Distribution Restrictions and Domain-level and time-based delivery. Token-Based Authentication is another way that content owners can more easily control who has access to their content. With Token-Based Authentication, a publisher can develop subscription and pay-per-view monetization models that will only make content available if a consumer has paid for the content.
