But let’s start from the beginning with a short introduction for those of you that are interested on reading more.

Probably, if you are reading this article is because you already knows that CF/WPEngine already developed a WordPress plugin.

This plugin is excellent if you only aim to manage your CF Stream videos from within WP and embedding them on your WP pages.

Unfortunately it doesn’t do any other functions that Cloudflare Stream offers. So we developed a plugin that protects your streamed videos keeping them private and preventing anyone from downloading them – and much more. If you want to know more details of how this is done, we explained that here.

The infographics below depicts the main differences between the two Cloudflare Stream Wordpress plugins:

How it works

After you purchase it, you can download it instantaneously and configure it with a few clicks filling in the setting details according to your requirements.

Of course, to be able to use this plugin you need to have a Cloudflare Stream account. You can upload the videos here, and Cloudflare will process them and assign a unique ID.

In WordPress, you can then integrate the videos thanks to this ID, that will remain secret. Following the instructions mentioned in the step-by-step guide provided with the purchase you will be able to transform that ID into a block or shortcode and embed your protected videos wherever you want in your Wordpress pages.

Your video will be protected with Cloudflare signed URL (tokenization): only certain domains can stream the video (the ones you add to the allow list) and it will be nearly impossible to download it from your website.

 

There are 2 options to integrate your video in your WordPress pages:

  • Using the dedicated “CFMedia block” (available only if you have WPBackery installed)
  • Using the shortcode, if you have Classic Editor or Gutenberg.

Hard to believe it, right?

Well, it’s reality now 😉
