Looking for a way to manage temporary passwords that could be used for live video encoder access? IBM Cloud Video and Ustream have rolled out a new feature that allows account managers to create passwords that can be used by encoding software, encoding hardware and mobile apps for the purpose of broadcasting. These passwords, which can be as permanent or temporary needed, are managed directly from the platform by account managers and access can be revoked at any time.
- Creating Temporary Device Passwords
- Manage Temporary Passwords: Revoke Access
- Compatible Encoders for Device Passwords
- Use Cases
Please note, while this feature presents an alternative way to access these encoders from a Ustream account, it is mandatory for IBM Cloud Video accounts to access these encoders in this new way. This is because login details associated with an IBM Cloud Video account can not be used to directly login to an encoder. Consequently, these device passwords are required to login to compatible encoders and apps.
