Ziggeo Evades Corporate Firewalls
Ziggeo's video recorder and video player are trained to work around corporate firewalls and other closed systems.
Corporate Firewalls often block certain internet ports and / or protocols that make it particularly difficult for video streaming processes to get through.
Here’s how it worksOur system automatically runs a suite of tests upon start to detect which type of firewalls might be in place in the given environment. The system then attempts to devise the best strategy to work around the particular type of firewall, making sure to select protocols and ports for uninterrupted recording and streaming of videos.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is this something we should do?
Yes, this is completely OK. Browser vendors are great at limiting different kind of bad things people can do through their browsers. Plus we are doing things in an industry expected manner. In short, we are just trying to make sure that the end user that wants to record or upload a video has as smooth experience as possible, even if they are behind complex firewall solutions.
Can you tell what exact firewall is being used?
No, not really. Luckily we do not need to. Everything is set up to respect certain security and privacy policies. This is what browser vendors use as well as ourselves. Instead of trying to figure out what the name of software or hardware someone might be using, we are actually more focusing on finding out the best routes to use ports and protocols allowed by their firewalls. So this is not as much about going around rather listening to what someone wanted us to use and using that specific path.
Does this work with WebRTC and WebRTC Streaming?
Yes, yes it does.
Do we need to enable this in our code?
Our system is designed to make as many useful things as default as possible. This way you can just add and use it. As such this feature is turned on by default and available to everyone without any additional setup required.
