In this episode Chris Risner and Haishi Bai are joined by Mingfei Yan, a Program Manager on the Azure Media Services team.  Mingfei goes over the two options for protecting your content when using Azure Media Services: AES Clear Key and DRM.  AES Clear Key is the less secure option but prevents man-in-the-middle attacks and ensures the media that is delivered to the client is what it should be.  DRM is a higher level of security which enables you to make sure your content cannot be reused or displayed anywhere you aren't authorizing it to be played.  In the episode Mingfei shows how to designate a video to use AES Clear Key as well as DRM and then how to display those videos once they are protected.
