There are ways to obfuscate the URL of embedded media through server-side scripting (and possibly using a database to store the URL), but ultimately the content must get served through a call from the browser and so any two-bit wannabe hacker can use programs such as wireshark or addons such as Tamper Data to find out the final URL, then can use a download ...

From what I hear, a VPN works, but a VPN costs money and requires changes to computer's settings. If so, you can use things like VyprVPN and other VPN's. There are certain proxies that can use video and forward it. This is what you are looking for: http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=video+proxies Another alternative, find a ...

Yes. Since you are downloading the video either way, it would use the same bandwidth. A streaming video is in a format that you can watch AS you download, when combined with buffering. Buffering, as you may know is the downloading of a small portion before the video actually starts. It works when you are using an internet connection that will allow you ...

Do you mean by using Google Hangout? Then the answer is yes. It is similar to embedding a YouTube video. Once you have started airing your video, Hangout generates a YouTube link and the embed code which can be used to display it live on any website. See this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdXogKQTVbE It is for WordPress but you can do similar ...

Depending on the video streaming site the data is most likely automatically being stored in your browsers cache. Usually this data is not easily accessible nor is it easy to piece together. I highly suggest taking a look at a program such as JDownloader which will find the video sources on pages and allow you to download them in various qualities. Therefore ...

I have stuttering issues with Silverlight 5 in Netflix, especially after Silverlight updates. I figured out that it is a combination of settings and the video card driver being used. Silverlight does not play nice with HD or 3dp video card drivers. Try these steps if your video in Silverlight seems choppy, stutters, audio gets off, or the image looks like it ...

The stats are visible on videos when you watch them on the site. There are no user engagement metrics clearly available from this view, but it is not clear if these stats are the "Advanced Statistics" from the marketing blurb, or if there may be engagement metrics in a different view/area of the site.

Currently, your Google+ Profile must be tied to a YouTube page in order for a Google+ Hangout on Air to be streamed live. You cannot (yet) tie a Google+ Page to a YouTube account, although YouTube has indicated this will be coming "soon", they have not provided further details on doing so.

You’ll need a Google+ Account for that. According to the Google blog post, users can broadcast their live hangout to their Google+ stream, but also to their YouTube channel or their website. It’s those last two items, and primarily the option to broadcast live to YouTube/live as well as Google+ that makes the general availability of Hangouts On Air so ...

You could use the fine Mac program Audio Hijack Pro to amplify your entire system's volume while you watching Netflix, as described here.

You can use one of many VPN services (which are not blocked by these services already) to watch tv shows/movies on US sites. I recommend Ivacy.com but there are many alternatives you can find on: AlternativeTo Lifehacker Five Best VPN

From what I know, Dacast could be a good option for you with a moderated chat room, streaming a screencast and webcam video. Regarding the first two, I am not sure. Try and see other solutions, like Ooyala or Brightcove as well. These are all similar platforms.

Seems that the best YouTube supports is specifying that you want HD (720p) if available. That's accomplished by appending &hd=1 to the URL. Almost a year ago, someone asked pretty much the same question on the YouTube support forum and got "Thanks for bringing this to our attention; we are looking at how to resolve this, and I will update you ...

Bits on the Run seems to support FTP, according to their online documentation. They're the same people who also develop the JW Player.
