Manage temporary passwords for live streaming encoders

Share this post:

manage-temporary-passwords-for-live-streaming-encodersIBM Cloud Video has launched a new capability that improves direct access to live video encoders for multiple users. This new functionality enables content owners to create and manage temporary passwords that are used to broadcast both external and internal live video for an enterprise. Compatible encoders for this feature range from mobile apps to software to even hardware based encoders.

Management of this feature is controlled directly from the cloud based platform. Administrators can generate new login details for users. This login and password then allows participants given the code to broadcast live content to this account. This is done through using the credentials to login to an encoder, which can be a mobile app or third party Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP)-based encoders. For example, login information can be given to an executive to allow them to live broadcast using their mobile phone to a secure, internal channel for a town hall. Another example would be login details given to a contractor to allow them to publish from a third party hardware encoder for a product launch to a large, external audience.

Through the platform, access can also be revoked. This creates a scenario where these login details are as permanent or as temporary as needed. For example, in the above scenario when the contractor is done with the product launch their login details for the encoder can be revoked.

This feature works with both IBM Cloud Video Streaming Manager and IBM Cloud Video Streaming Manager for Enterprise.
