Good day

I am setting up a Windows Media Server but have a question about secure access.

I used to use a Windows Media Server that I hired the use of and it had a certain security feature - it would only serve video files from a certain folder if they had a valid "security token" appended to the filename.

The token string would be requested by some php within the page that had the mms stream embedded. Each token would expire after 1 minute.

Say for example that the token was AbAbAbA, the embedded filename would be:

mms://server.blah/file.wmv?token=AbAbAbA

If the token was not appended or if it had expired, the file would not serve.

I have tried searching allover to try and find how this was done, as I would like to use that again, but unfortunately have not had any luck, and the company I used to hire the server from does not exist anymore. Can anyone help me out?

Thanks
