Learn how to set up a geo blocking restriction on a Video player in this blog.
Protecting video platforms from third-party attacks has become a big task today. Video piracy in today’s world is becoming bigger and bigger day by day. With Flicknexs, you can enable geo blocking restrictions on video players that give you full control over the video content and give protection against piracy. Restricting the video content based on geographical location is known as Geo-Blocking.
Setting up Geo-Blocking allows video creators to restrict access to their video content for users from particular locations. This is mainly due to copyright issues and licensing agreements in particular countries.
