Note: This feature is included for Premium users, and available as an add-on on for Pro and Pro+ users as a part of the security package.

Geo Blocking allows you to restrict or allow viewers in specific locations around the world. To get started, go to the item that you would like to add the policy to, and click on the Security Tab inside the edit screen.

Click on the Manage button, then Create Geo-Blocking Policy.

You will name the policy and add a description. This is information that only you will be able to see. Then you will choose “Block” or “Allow” and select your criteria. You can choose to block/allow by Country, State, City, or IP address. If you choose a country or state, you will select which one you want from the drop down menu. If you choose a city or IP address, you’ll type in the information. You can also upload an image to display. That image is what will be displayed if someone tries to view your player from a location that is restricted. You could upload a graphic that says something like, “This stream is not allowed to be viewed from this location.”

Geo-Blocking Policies are reusable, so once you create this one, any time you go to the Security tab, it will show up as an option to apply to that particular piece of media. They also can be removed or edited.
