Re: Client is Asking for TOTAL Copy Protection of Online Videos

said by disconnected :

So what do you embedded video experts think? Is there tech on the horizon that can address camcorder copying AND encryption? Or will this be way too far in the future?

Going into a little more detail, if it can be displayed, it can be copied. If there was some type of magical anti-piracy technique don't you think that the MPAA and/or the RIAA would be employing it?

That.
One way or another any content can be copied. ANY. It may not be a bit-exact copy, but it will be a usable copy.
If it can be displayed on the screen then a screen recording software can copy it. If the video card has a S-video/Component/Composite output it can be copied. Hell my capture card can do even HDMI in 1080p.
