I intend to buy FV Player Pro for working on self-hosted videos. I’m particularly interested in video quality switching.
I have checked out the documentation [here https://foliovision.com/player/basic-setup/quality-switching ] but I’m wondering if the approach to quality switching could be made simple.
As such, I do have the following questions.
1. For example, what happens if the videos in question are not on the same directory nor have an almost similar URL?
I can host the videos on a different video hosting platform. However, each MP4 file will have a unique URL.
In some players that support Quality Switching, they do have slots where you can enter and label videos of different quality when setting up a video.
Therefore, you can have unique video URLs hosted on different platforms and collate them to the player for quality switching.
For example, take a look at the Multi-Resolutions feature of a video player that I’m using.
2. Is it possible to encrypt URLs to prevent people from skimming through your website’s source code to extract the MP4 links and horde your server’s resources?
