ScaleEngine Virtual Usher


The ScaleEngine Virtual Usher (SE-VU) plugin now offers ScaleEngine customers video security on their WordPress Pages.
We are the technical choice for stream protection. Our SE-VU system secures your content, protecting you from rippers
and guarding your investment in content production. Monetize your content safely with a real authorization solution for live
streamed events and for VoD. Read more on our [Stream Security]:
page. SE-VU is available for both iOS/HLS/XBMC and RTMP/RTMPe.

The sevu_ticket shortcode will order a SE-VU ticket and return the secure token and password of the ticket as a url param string.
This string can then be appended to your HLS url in you player, and then passed to the video servers to access the secured content.
The shortcode issues SE-VU tickets through the ScaleEngine API using your ScaleEngine API credentials, which
are required during configuration of the application.
