first version of VideoGuard was released in August 2002.
Before we integrated
our system with VideoGuard, we had 20 Windows Media Servers to serve
more than 20,000 titles on line. The bandwidth was around 100 ~ 120
Mbps per server. We had been looking for a quick and efficient solution
to stop account abuse and hotlink to video files. With VideoGuard
from Hoyasoft.com, we only need to put 6 Windows Media Servers on
line and the bandwidth has dropped to 30 ~ 50 Mbps per server. VideoGuard
helps us to block more than 20,000 illicit streaming connections
every day. With the investment on VideoGuard, we are now very happy
that we don't need to pay such a high cost for account abusing and
Jean, IT Manager - HiNet HiChannel
HiNet HiChannel is one of the largest Chinese VOD
web sites on the Internet. It serves more than 20,000 titles on
line and has 3,000,000 ADSL paid users in Taiwan and 30,000 paid
a great program. It has a terrific list of powerful features
which we rely on LicenseKorean.com. Our entire streaming site
was built upon VideoGuard and it has saved us countless hours to
develop out own plugin and made our lives infinitely easier.
We were using another similar product, and it is extremely cost
prohibitive. We are looking for a cheaper solution that will do the exact same thing... except we don't need bells and whistles, we just
need the referrer based protection. It creates
a temporary user in it's own database and gives access according to that.
We are looking for a new system that will secure our feeds and provide us the entry point page to check on referrer. We simply need a plugin for WMS that will allow us to protect the
streaming files from being accessed from anyone who wasn't referred by a
With VideoGuard, we can simply develop several web pages for adding referrers
that are to be accepted to the list.... if the referrer is not on the
list, then the user is denied access.
Thank you so much for this great
software. I can't believe what it has done for me until I saw the
log. It rejects 4000 illegal connections per day. I
can't image how much bandwidth I had paid for those illicit
access before I found VideoGuard.
Every month, VideoGuard has saved me $300 dollars on bandwidth and
increased $200 dollars income on paid membership.
Now I can not run my site without it!!
Thanks for getting
back so fast. Great technical support. Nice program.
We are using Video
Guard as a component in a product we are developing. I really dig the
new features of VideoGuard 2.0, especially the ability to update
video usage on the fly. To us, this is a VERY important feature.

My name is Kaiser.
I found your program on the internet, and I tested this program.
It's working very very very well................:)
It's very interesting and great protection method for media contents....
I tested this program for several ways such as general media player and media player with skin.....there is no
problem to protect my media contents....
It's really nice.....
Actually, I have two sites www.mana1004.com
and www.xcoco.com to serve the media contents (Windows Media Format).
As you know, I have to pay high costs for bandwidth to serve the media contents.
I think this program will reduce the costs for bandwidth.
I always have problem that someone sees the media contents without paying costs or someone share his ID with others
(such as Double Login) or someone sees media contents through mms://
But I think this program will perfectly protect media contents from those people.
I'd like to
congratulate you on this great product. It is exactly what we
need to protect our web site.
I got known of you via searching the news groups of Microsoft for WMS.
I am a content provider who gives out leased content to AWM's. Therefore I will need to set up a function,
that only authorized sites will have access to the videos I will give to them.
Until now, we have done this with the referer check of the .htaccess, but now we are on a windows machine and things will change :)
I have to run a table of websites (URL's) which I grant access to the videos. That means, the user will access a site on www.xyz.com and he
gets a list of videos which are implemented within the html pages on this site (by object tag's - embedded). No I have to make sure, that first this URL can have
access to the videos and sec. that the user can not access the videos directly by copy the
URLs out of the source code and paste them into his media player.
Also I would like to keep out other sites, which are not paying for this service, to steel the videos by hot linking
In small letters: I would like grant access to people only, which will be
referred or access the videos by defined URL's Like People coming from or are on this site http://www.abc.com http://www.123.com http://www.yxz.com
will have access to the videos. All other URL's are blocked
your service is as good as
ours. If you need to promote VideoGuard I will sent out some info via my newsletter (about 6000 Webmasters). It's for free :)
if you have any info prepared, please send it over and I will take it.
We use VideoGuard to protect our
live streaming feed. It is a great product. It works as expected
I've been contemplating on either
using your VideoGuard or another company's plugin. Finally, I chose
VideoGuard for its low cost and what it offers. We currently
use VideoGuard to provide our users a different pricing system,
including membership, Pay-Per-View and Pay-Per-Minute. You guys have
done a great job.
