Support » Plugin: Cloudflare Stream Video » Signed URL for protecting from Public access

  • Resolved schifo


    Hello guys, first, thanks a lot for this wonderful plugin.
    It’s surely a 5 over 5 stars!!!

    It works great if you have Gutenberg installed, which unfortunately is something many people can’t afford (like me) because their website is based upon a theme (for me it’s “Uncode”, from undesign) that only works with WPBakery page builder.
    So here are my suggestions for next developments or addition to your amazing plugin:

    a) making it working with “classical editor” or having a block loading from WPBakery page builder directly (which is a pretty diffused page builder).

    b) also, one of the best functionalities of CF stream is that they allow for signed URLs. But their requirements DO require technical knowledge (curl, bash, keys, token…..) and it’s pretty complex to make it working.

    I tested thoroughly your plugin but it does not allow to deal with signed URLs… if I check on CF the “Require Signed URLs” check, I get an error on your player “Failed to load video. You may not have permission to view it or a network error has occurred”

    It would be great if you could add some kind of friendly UI to manage signed urls allowing to bypass technical knowledge to do so.

    Thanks a lot and thanks again for the time you dedicated into this plugin!

    @schifo Thank you for your valuable feedback, both around classic editor support and signed URLs. We are always considering ways to make the plugin easier to use while supporting some of the more advance Stream features. I’ll make sure your feedback is taken into consideration.

    Hello, handy plugin,
    but still, I can’t find an example of how to use Signed URL with this plugin.
    At the moment, I can share videos from CloudFlare but when I check the box “Require Signed URLs” the video doesn’t play, is the expected behaviour, if I am not logged in to the web site. But when I am logged in should play the video.
