Downloading Private Videos on YouTube and Vimeo
I just came across some dangerous tools and Im not sure if a discussion topic was started or not yet but I thought I might just put this info out there...
These are just 3 of the many tools ive come across in the past 20 minutes...
Even though your content is marked as private (Youtube) or even not downloadable (Vimeo), you can still have these tools crawl and even get an HD mp4 copy of your content. How to prevent? If you are Tom Lowe and millions of people see your reel, it would be hard to get away with someone stealing and distributing your work. But is the answer just watermarking the shit out of your content? Or not watermarking it at all and making it public and downloadable, opening the floodgates? I have not dealt with this yet but I was just curious what everyone thought, or has anyone else seen stuff like this?
With the players that can even throw a PNG logo on top of someone elses video, the ripping, its hard to imagine a place that can protect its users. Does ExposureRoom offer such a place? Kind of curious what other people think...
